Mr. Umbra commented further that, “Kansas was selected for the company’s energy campaign because of its total energy potential, not just the farming of traditional hydrocarbons.” Intrepid Energy will be coordinating its oil & gas operations with its sister company, Umbra Applied Technologies, Inc. (UAT), which will be installing green energy technologies on Intrepid Energy properties. UAT’s Helix wind turbine will be the first green energy technology to partner with Intrepid. The State of Kansas has the second highest wind energy potential in the United States, according to the American Wind Energy Association.
CEO of Intrepid Energy, Justin Herman, stated, “If we compare southeastern Kansas to the Bakken of North Dakota or to the Marcellus Shale, its formation depth is significantly less. The drilling and completion costs are much lower in our area. We believe Kansas is ideal in terms of return of investment for oil & gas production and to introduce the green technologies from UAT.”
Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc. is a diversified, leading edge technology company with an intrepid vision in the fields of alternative energy, conventional energy, medical innovation, environmental remediation, weaponry, and compound recognition technologies which are marketed toward homeland security.
