The design of this method (Non-Hydraulic Extraction or Zero Water Fracking) is to neutralize dangers to groundwater and other potentially toxic byproducts.
Chimera’s Non-Hydraulic Extraction system is a Shale Oil extraction system designed to safely and economically replace hydraulic fracturing (AKA fracking and fracing) without negative environmental impacts. The new process uses no water and no steam, LPG gel, natural gas or the pumping of anything hot into the well.

Trans-Pacific’s manufacturing facility in China will make aerospace quality SAE-AS 81820, 81934 and 81935 plain spherical bearings, bushings and rod-ends. The design of these small components is to reduce friction and "bear" loads. Each bearing is a military spec, precision-tooled part. These parts are self-lubricating, and typically find usage in sections of an aircraft that are difficult or impractical to access for maintenance. They help with flight critical tasks including preventing the airframe from breaking apart, the engine from falling out over the Pacific and the landing gear from collapsing on impact with the runway.

For the fourth quarter alone, the company reported total operating revenues of $8.30 million; income from operations of $0.65 million; EBITDA of $0.91 million; and net income of $0.16 million.
“As we look back and reflect on all of the events that transpired during fiscal 2012, what becomes readily apparent is the total mass of activity, both set-backs and accomplishments, that has set the stage for the Company’s future direction for the next several years,” stated T. A. “Kip” Hyde, Jr., President, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Teletouch. “From geometric growth in our two-way radio/PSE unit, to favorably settling the AT&T litigation, to a change of control in our stock holders, to our senior credit provider, Thermo Credit LLC, having its own difficulties and pulling our credit line, to a material sales tax assessment related to issues not identified in any State of Texas sales tax audits of the Company in any prior years, to satisfying the pent-up demand for the iPhone in our customer base, to completing our first direct handset manufacturer distribution agreement and a nearly a dozen other distribution agreements, we’ve been busy. To put it mildly, this past fiscal year has been a wild ride.”
Hyde continued, “Then add, since the end of the May 2012, the recent sale of that same two-way radio/PSE business, going through a road-show presentation process, with the subsequent term sheet negotiations and then signing, with due diligence now in process with a potential new lender, our high levels of activity continue, but are now all focused on furthering future growth for the Company. While we still have a few remaining challenges, returning Teletouch to operating profitability has been foremost among our goals, and we achieved that for the fourth quarter and year as a whole. All in all, it has been a great way to start fiscal 2013.”

Unlike typical energy exploration and production companies, Houston’s Duma Energy Corp. is based on far more than hopes for a successful well. The company has a growing list of assets in both the U.S. and overseas, with expanding income and proven reserves necessary to sustain the company for the long haul.
• Duma’s key productive interests are located in the shallow waters in Galveston Bay and Trinity Bay comfortably near Houston. It also has interests in wells and sites in two other parts of Texas, as well as in Louisiana and Illinois.
• The company produced 38,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) in fiscal 2011, and has already produced over 45,000 boe in the first half of fiscal 2012, with recent year-over-year revenue growth exceeding 500%. Operating margins, now near 50%, are improving as new wells and production increase efficiencies.
• Duma has $77.7 million in proven reserves (discounted), with less than $12 million booked reserves.
• The company has a time-tested team leading it, with most of the invested capital coming directly from the CEO and insiders. As such, the company targets only industry standard and proven technologies, carefully avoiding risky plays that depend upon high commodity prices.
• In addition to productive and promising projects in the U.S., Duma now holds a working interest in a petroleum concession of approximately 5.3 million acres in the southwestern African nation of Namibia. The concession is located in the Owambo Basin, a huge area that extends across the northern border into Angola, one of Africa’s major oil producing countries. As part of the company’s strategy, overseas exploration efforts are well-funded through its ongoing and stable domestic production operations in the U.S.
In summary, Duma has growing revenue, cash flow, and a solid pipeline of prospects.
