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.”

(Fornebu 07 september 2022) Telenor inngår en transaksjon som skal støtte fremtidige investeringer i Norges telekominfrastruktur. Tidligere i år påbegynte Telenor en prosess for å vurdere etableringen av et eierselskap for passiv fiberinfrastruktur, med en medinvestor i en minoritetsposisjon. Telenor har nå kommet til enighet om å selge 30 prosent av det nye fiberselskapet til et konsortium ledet av det globale investeringsselskapet KKR, som investerer gjennom sin kjerneinfrastrukturstrategi. Konsortiet inkluderer Oslo Pensjonsforsikring som medinvestor. Det nyetablerte selskapet er et datterselskap av Telenor og vil bli en del av det nye forretningsområdet Telenor Infrastruktur. Selskapet vil eie de passive elementene i det norske fibernettet. Dette omfatter omtrent 130.000 kilometer med kabler som leverer tjenester til omtrent 560.000 husstander. Eiendelene vil bli skilt ut fra Telenor Norge før transaksjonen sluttføres. Telenor Norge blir selskapets eneste kunde og alle operasjonell
