USR Technology, Inc. Closes on Acquisition of Assets From Euroslot S.A.S. Valued at $2 Million
USR Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: USRI) -
As previously announced, on July 3, 2008 USR Technology, Inc. entered into a letter of intent with the private French company Euroslot S.A.S. concerning the granting by Euroslot of a US$1,000,000 credit against the future supply of certain assets, called Snake Screen(TM), and an exclusive 20 year worldwide license, excluding France, Iran and Russia, to use and market the patented Snake Screen(TM) technology. The value of this worldwide license is agreed at US$1,000,000.
About the Snake Screen(TM)
The Snake Screen(TM) is the only articulated and rotatable sand screen technology available to the industry and is the only sand screen capable of negotiating the extreme radius of curvatures of Ultra-Short Radius (USR) wellbores. The distinct advantage of the Snake Screen(TM) is that it can be rotated without damage to the outer screen jacket. Rotation prevents frictional lockup when attempting to reach target depth in horizontal wellbores.
Sand screens are installed in oil and gas wells as a means to exclude loose sand and other solids particles from the produced hydrocarbon stream. Solids control is critical to prolonging the life of many oil and gas wells. Without proper solids control a well can plug off resulting in a reduced or complete loss of production. Additional benefits of controlling solids across the producing formation is that it reduces the downtime and operating costs of a well due to damage to downhole pumps and surface equipment.
