Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI, OTC: GXRFF, FRA: OF6B) is an operator in Canada's energy industry offering exposure to exploration, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas. Prospera is engaged in the acquisition, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas in Western Canada. Its core assets are medium to heavy oil properties (12-17 API) located along the Alberta-Saskatchewan border of Cuthbert, Heart Hills, and Luseland.
On September 7, 2022 Aduro announced that its scaled-up continuous flow bitumen reactor was nearing completion and readiness for customer trials and engagement acceleration. This LOI is the Company’s second engagement on the bitumen vertical with a producer in Alberta.
The LOI outlines an 18-month plan with three phases. Phase one, which will commence during the month of October, includes the testing of bitumen feedstocks and the evaluation of the economics. It is expected to be completed in Q1 2023. Phase two includes preliminary engineering, identification of the pilot plant site, and reviewing of licenses and permits, as well as detailed budgeting and agreement to proceed with construction. Phase two is scheduled for completion in Q3 2023. Phase three includes the procurement, fabrication, construction, commissioning, and operation of a 50 bbl/day pilot plant. Work is expected to be completed in Q2 2024. After completion of phase three, Aduro and Prospera will define a roadmap to commissioning a 3,000 bbl/day commercial facility.
In consideration for the services to be provided in phase one, Prospera will pay Aduro a monthly fee of $25,000CAD plus applicable taxes, with the total fees for the completion and delivery of phase one scope capped at $125,000 plus applicable taxes.
“Prospera Energy is primarily focused on optimizing hydrocarbon recovery through environmentally safe and efficient development and production practices,” according to Samuel David, President & CEO of Prospera. “We are investing in innovation that reduces blend down stock, improves the product specification, increases unit economics, and has a lower carbon footprint. We are motivated by the potential impact that this technology can have on our operations.”
“Aduro’s research and engineering team has been building the necessary tools to enable Aduro to test an expanded range of customer feedstock, and we are very excited to apply it to Prospera’s crude and to demonstrate our ability to unlock the value of lower API bitumen,” says Ofer Vicus, Chief Executive Officer at Aduro. “By partnering with Samuel David and the Prospera team, we will have access to resources and support in building and operating a pilot plant facility, an important milestone on our path to commercialization.”

Intern viden - Præcisering af forventninger for 20234.12.2023 18:21:59 CET | pressemeddelelse
SELSKABSMEDDELELSE Odense, 4. december 2023 Selskabsmeddelelse nr. 45 – 04.12.2023 Intern viden - Præcisering af forventninger for 2023 Danish Aerospace Company A/S (DAC) har tidligere, for regnskabsåret 2023, udmeldt en forventet omsætning i niveauet DKK 24 - 26 mio. og et positivt driftsresultat (EBITDA) i niveauet DKK 3 - 4 mio. I forbindelse med halvårsregnskabet for 2023, orienterede Selskabet om forventninger mod den lavere ende i forhold til både omsætning og driftsindtjening (EBITDA). Forsinkelse i indgåelse af et par større kommende ESA-kontrakter og kontrakttilføjelser, bl.a. til Gaintex, gør at DAC nu forventer en omsætning for regnskabsåret 2023 lige under den lave ende af det tidligere udmeldte interval, i størrelsesordenen DKK 23 mio. Endvidere, forventes DAC’s EBITDA for 2023 at ligge omkring DKK 1 mio.

Insider information - Clarification of expectations for 20234.12.2023 18:21:59 CET | Press release
COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT Odense, December 4th, 2023 Company Announcement no. 45 – 12.04.2023 Insider information - Clarification of expectations for 2023 Danish Aerospace Company A/S (DAC) has previously, for its 2023 Financial Year, announced an expected revenue in the range of DKK 24-26 million and a positive operating profit (EBITDA) in the range of DKK 3-4 million. In connection with the 2023 Interim report, DAC briefed the market on expectations in the lower end compared to both revenue and operating profit (EBITDA). Delays in signing a couple of larger future European Space Agency contracts and contract additions, among them GAINTEX, lead to DAC now expecting a revenue for the Fiscal year 2023 to be in the range of DKK 23 million, just below the lower end of the formerly announced expectation. Further, it is expected that DAC’s EBITDA for 2023 will be in the range of DKK 1 million. For further information: Danish Aerospace Company A/S: Chairman of the Board of Directors Niels Heering
