ClearSign secures major multi-flare contract with California producer

8/4/2016

SEATTLE, Washington -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation, an emerging provider of industrial combustion technologies that help to reduce emissions and improve efficiency, has received a multi-flare contract from a major California oil producer to retrofit their enclosed wellhead ground flares with its Duplex technology to ensure compliance with air district emission requirements.

This contract, which includes the previously disclosed initial test unit and is through the producer's contractor, Advanced Combustion & Process Controls, Inc. (ACPC), is valued at over $1,000,000. It is expected to be completed over the next 6 to 12 months depending on the customer's schedule.

This first major order for ClearSign comes as it nears completion of the retrofit of the customer's high output, enclosed ground flare used for flaring wellhead gas, which was originally announced in February.

While there are over one million flares associated with production wells in North America, only a small portion of these flares are regulated. California currently regulates flare emissions, and it is expected that other states will follow over time to comply with the Clean Air Act.

Steve Pirnat, chairman and CEO, ClearSign, said, "We are very pleased with the excellent results to date from our installation of Duplex in an enclosed wellhead flare. The positive performance of our technology and our customer's confidence in that technology has led to this major, new contract for additional installations. I believe that this is a seminal endorsement of Duplex from a significant oil producer."
