Cold Bore Technology, the leader in frac completions automation and platform technology, today announced it has closed $14M in growth financing. The round was led by bp ventures with participation from the Canadian Business Growth Fund (CBGF). Existing investors include the Rice Investment Group (RIG), a $200M multi-strategy, energy sector investment fund.
Cold Bore is leading a major shift in the completions (fracing) industry towards safer, more autonomous operations by providing oil & gas companies (operators) with a centralized digital platform called SmartPAD. SmartPAD is an end-to-end, fully integrated software and hardware platform designed to collect, analyze, and report data which would otherwise be underutilized. Better utilization of this data unlocks operators’ ability to make step-change improvements across all key performance indicators.
SmartPAD deployments are on pace to exceed 100% year-on-year growth in 2021, as more and more operators recognize Cold Bore as a key enabler for keeping workers safe and meeting heightened ESG commitments.
