Locus Bio-Energy Solutions opens new oil innovation center in Houston


THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS - Locus Bio-Energy Solutions officially opened its new 7,117-square-foot Houston innovation center this week. The company debuted the center to top oilfield leaders during an exclusive workshop. 

Located in The Woodlands, the innovation center will act as Locus Bio-Energy’s new headquarters, housing the executive and scientific leadership teams. It features a state-of-the-art laboratory to customize and deploy the company’s AssurEOR biosurfactant treatment program across the Permian and other Texas basins.

This is the third expansion for Locus Bio-Energy, which started with an R&D facility in Solon, Ohio at the headquarters of its parent company, Locus Fermentation Solutions (Locus FS). Since Locus Bio-Energy was founded in 2017, it has tripled employment and built additional facilities in the heart of the Appalachian and Permian basins. It now has offices in Worthington, Ohio, and Midland and The Woodlands, Texas. 

“This new innovation center is the next step in executing our strategic growth plan, and we’re honored to continue building roots in Texas by expanding our presence in the Permian basin and entering the Eagle Ford basin,” said Jonathan Rogers, the company’s CEO. “Our goal is to bring innovative, green chemistries to the oil industry, and the center has the specialized, niche analytical capabilities to take our offerings to the next level.”
