Parker's patent pending Heavy Oil Gas Extraction Technology ("HOGE") is a technology that is relatively inexpensive and with no foreseeable environmental impact. HOGE is designed to extract heavy oil from formations such as tar/oil sands with a calculated recovery of 90% or more.

Using conservative assumptions, Parker projects that for each individual well with 1 lateral producing a minimum of 50 bbls per day and oil at estimated price of $90.00 per barrel that each well should annually produce an estimated $1.1 million net profit before taxes on revenues of $2.03 million.
