FormCap Corp. (FRMC) announced it is establishing itself as a Bonded Operator in the State of New Mexico in anticipation of its first proposed well on the Weber City Prospect located in Curry County, New Mexico.


FormCap Corp. (FRMC) is an emerging oil & gas exploration and development company. With a primary focus on the discovery and development of oil in the Continental United States, the company has assembled 4,800 acres of oil and gas mineral leases, together called the Weber City Prospect, located in Curry County, New Mexico.

The Weber City Prospect has been defined by detailed geological information including well log data, seismic, Landsat and independent third party geological interpretation. After thorough review of the collected data, FormCap believes there is potential to drill up to 100 wells that could produce over 300 million barrels of oil.

The initial well will be drilled to a total depth of 6,500' to test four potential productive hydrocarbon zones; the San Andres, Clearfork, Wolfcamp and, the primary objective, the Cisco Formation. The company has also outlined multiple secondary objectives in the primary producing zones of the Permain Basin of New Mexico and Texas.

The Permian Basin is very prolific and well known for its oil production. Owning their leases 100%, FormCap is fully in charge of its exploration and drill plan. The four well established formations should provide FormCap with a relatively low risk opportunity as the company’s experienced management team dedicates all efforts towards profitability.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.08, which was up 33.33 percent. Their volume today was 15,000 shares.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

Energtek, Inc. (EGTK) Changes The Game

Energtek Inc. is set to change the lives of literally millions of people in Southeast Asia through the successful introduction of CNG LITE™. Based upon Energtek’s proprietary ANG (Absorbed Natural Gas) technology, which allows natural gas to be stored under low pressure as opposed to costly high-pressure or liquefied natural gas alternatives, the CNG LITE system makes it cost effective to convert the huge number of 2 and 3 wheeled motorized vehicles, so common in that part of the world, to natural gas, the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels.

The potential impact of this new technology, both on individuals and the environment, is so great because of the sheer number of such vehicles currently in use. Right now there are over 300 million motorized 2 and 3 wheeled vehicles on the road throughout the world, primarily in places like the Philippines and other developing countries. For decades they have provided cheap and easy transportation, and have been a major part of business and consumer life in developing countries around the world.

But the emissions of these little movers have seriously impacted air quality wherever they’re used, and governments have come under increasing pressure to do something about it. Until now, there simply wasn’t much that could be done. With CNG LITE, Energtek has effectively changed the entire game. By making it possible to store natural gas inexpensively, under low-pressure, Energtek has removed the primary hurdle for converting to natural gas. And natural gas, by producing far less carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxides than other fossil fuels, while also being suitable to use in motor vehicles, is the perfect answer to environmental questions. Using Energtek’s fine-tuned conversion kit technology, vehicles running on natural gas are ensured the best fuel efficiency and performance, and pollution is dramatically reduced.

Energtek is now working with governments to test and develop conversion programs. In the Philippines, the company has recently completed successful field trials, and the government there has indicated their feeling that CNG LITE system is the only commercially-viable system that can be utilized for the mass conversions of tricycles in their country.
