From the report:
Well RA-000A prior to treatment showed a production rate of 196 bopd. After successfully executing the PPT the well was production tested after one month and showed a stabilized production rate of 363 bopd, an increase of 167 bopd, or 85%. In addition to this, immediately after plasma application, nearby well RA-000B, which is 400m away from this well observed 81 psi increase in pump intake pressure.

"In the past we've been prevented from disclosing results due to non-disclosure agreements with operator customers, thus we're pleased to receive such validation from this objective study," commented John Huemoeller II, Propell CEO. "In addition to the incremental production, we are especially excited about the treatment's effect on nearby wells, an effect that we suspected but is now verified and documented."
