Freedom Financial Holdings Announces Definitive Agreement to Launch Heavy-Oil Conversion Technology
Freedom Financial Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FDMF) CEO Brian Kistler announced today that the Company has signed the definitive agreement with WI Technology, LLC, an Oil Technology company, to form a Joint Venture to launch a new Heavy-oil conversion technology and begin production on reserves within Southwest Missouri.
Brian Kistler, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We gave ourselves 60 days to get the final agreement and terms completed, however the excitement from all parties gave this initiative top priority. The opportunity to partner with WI Technology and participate in this project is absolutely a huge opportunity for the Freedom Financial Holdings shareholders. We believe the technical and economic viability of this breakthrough technology has the potential to significantly increase and change the production of heavy oil resources."
Kistler further commented, "The first oil production leases contain approximately 1500 acres with oil reserves that are estimated to be over $800 million (USD). After first witnessing the conversion process of old hard asphalt separate back into its original form with sand and gravel at the bottom and pure oil at the top, we at Freedom Financial Holdings and WI Technology believe this proprietary heavy oil conversion technology could potentially change part of the processes involved with domestic oil production."
"Final negotiations with the drilling company should be completed over the next few days. Once this agreement is consummated we hope to be producing oil within 60-90 days. The most exciting point concerning this whole initiative is that we know where the oil is. This is not exploration, but production. Samples of oil from the first lease have been evaluated and first indications show that we have very good grade of oil. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources estimates Missouri has between $35 billion and $42 billion in heavy-oil reserves," concluded Kistler.
