Minimizing Lifting Costs to Maximize Economic Efficiencies

Dan Alvillar
Vice President Sales, Black Gold
Black Gold Pump & Supply, Inc.


Black Gold Pump & Supply, Inc. has been delivering product and service solutions to the oil industry for over 30 years. The recent downfall of oil prices forced the industry to exhibit a diligent focus on minimizing lifting costs to maximize economic efficiencies. During this time, clients developed trust in Black Gold’s expertise, which has been built over 80 years of combined upper management oilfield experience. By offering innovative solutions to clients, Black Gold has successfully reduced operating costs by increasing run-times which resulted in reduced down-time and loss of production. Because of this, Black Gold has gained international recognition as a dependable, solution-based company. Based in Signal Hill California, Black Gold now ships to 14 states and 10 international countries.

This presentation will discuss some of the solutions that not only helped our clients, but also the environment. More importantly, performance data will be presented, allowing the audience to analytically evaluate the product and apply it to their own practice.
