First Plasma Pulse treatment of PEMEX well pilot program completed

Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Propell Technologies Group, Inc (OTCQB:PROP) the U.S. and Mexico provider of a plasma pulse based well treatment today announced treatment of its first oil well in Mexico for Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX).

This treatment was the culmination of a Unilateral Proposal by Novas Energy USA and its Joint Venture partner, Grupo Industrial RJP, SA de CV (Grupo Industrial) to treat certain Pemex operated wells as part of a strategic alliance to market and sell Plasma Pulse oil recovery treatments in the United Mexican States.

The first treatment met all safety guidelines and was completed on schedule without incident.

The Company expects to receive results from the operator at which time it will be decided how to expand the program.

Mexico is the 7th largest oil producing nation in the world.

Mexican law requires that Pemex conduct business on its wells with approved vendors. The composition of these partnerships must include a percentage of Mexican ownership.

“We are looking forward to providing the technology necessary to enhance oil production in Mexico”, commented Pablo Avila Sanchez, General Director for Grupo Industrial. “ Our company has the disciplined approach necessary to execute a treatment plan and provide measurable results to PEMEX.”

John A. Zotos, Director of Business Development for Propell Technologies in Mexico states “We could not be more pleased to partner with Grupo Industrial and become a part of the historic Energy Reform in Mexico. The opportunity to introduce Plasma Pulse technology to PEMEX, Mexico’s sole producer of crude oil and natural gas is a high honor.”

“Mexico is the third largest producer of oil in the Western Hemisphere and a place where we offer strong competitive value,” commented John Huemoeller II, Propell president and CEO. “We have every confidence in Grupo Industrial and its management to be a great partner as we roll out the treatment business in the region.”

Propell Technologies Group, Inc. (, through its wholly owned subsidiary Novas Energy USA, is the exclusive U.S licensee of the Plasma Pulse enhanced oil recovery (EOR) well treatment that improves well production cost effectively and without acidization, hydrofracking or other chemicals.
