A unique platform technology to support the ongoing Energy Transition

The production and transportation of oil requires a lot of pipes—and if you know anything about pipes, you know that they get clogged up all too easily. The oil that powers our trains, planes and automobiles is found deep in the ground, extracted from rock and moved up to the surface, where it’s transported to a refinery and then sent to consumers in the form of plastic, gasoline, jet fuel, etc. 

One of the biggest challenges in managing the movement of this oil is a heavy component called asphaltene, “the cholesterol of oil,” that can clog pipes to the point of completely stopping production. The oil industry’s use of harsh chemicals against asphaltene has produced mostly lackluster results, leaving the problem unsolved for nearly 60 years. Enter MicroSilicon.

Our patented technology leverages quantum chemistry, AI and machine learning to implement real-time chemical spectroscopy and advanced micro-sensors for industrial process monitoring. MicroSilicon's proprietary platform technology sets the stage to more accurately control the volume of necessary chemicals, thereby improving operational efficiency and reducing the environmental effects these chemicals cause. Optimizing drainage with digital flow assurance means drilling fewer wells and squeezing more energy out of existing facilities.

While the global energy ecosystem is growing cleaner and greener, oil and gas will remain a critical resource for decades to come. In order to succeed in this enormous and essential transition, it’s crucial to change the paradigm of energy extraction.  

MicroSilicon has created a completely different approach to managing operational efficiency within oilfields, potentially presenting an enormous, immediate and impactful opportunity to increase sustainability while improving costs and supply. Our mission is to play a critical role in making traditional energy production safer, cheaper and more sustainable by drastically cutting the cost of chemicals used in the oil industry and significantly reducing the carbon footprint associated with oil production. 

As the Energy Transition advances, we’ll continue to expand our platform’s applications to support non-traditional sources such as offshore wind. We’ve got patents on every single new problem we’ve solved—16 and counting—resulting in a unique and highly proprietary system including our licenses from Rice University, service and dataset that grows and improves over time.

The Problem

Billions are being spent annually on asphaltene mitigation

Asphaltene deposition costs roughly $2.5B annually*—of which the current solutions are largely costly and ineffective. Within pipelines, asphaltene acts much like cholesterol does in your arteries. If the asphaltene becomes unstable, it aggressively deposits inside pumps and tubing, potentially shutting down production and increasing remediation costs. This recurring issue affects markets around the world (source), with oil and gas operators spending billions each year in attempts to mitigate asphaltene buildup in their wells and pipelines. 

*Figure calculated by Global Industry Analysts in the 2021 report, 'Global Asphaltene and Paraffin Inhibitors Industry'

The accumulating asphaltene can plug the wellbore tubing, valves, separators, etc. obstructing the pipelines. Repair costs range from $300K to $20M offshore. A well producing a daily volume of 5,000 barrels can stand to lose $500K per day when shut down. Past measures to prevent these losses and inefficiencies have fallen far short due to an inability to measure asphaltene levels in real time.

*Figure calculated by Global Industry Analysts in the 2021 report, 'Global Asphaltene and Paraffin Inhibitors Industry'

Despite renewable energy advancements, traditional fossil fuels will remain crucial for decades to come. In 2021, renewable energy sources accounted for about 12.2% of total U.S. energy consumption and about 20.1% of electricity generation (source); by 2050, renewables are projected to account for only 42% of total energy (source). 

While the world prepares for the energy of tomorrow, MicroSilicon has developed a solution that oil and gas operators need today.

The Solution

A proprietary platform leveraging quantum science improves operational efficiency

MicroSilicon combines advanced sensors, data analytics and AI software to more accurately target & dose chemicals, thereby increasing production, reducing waste & costly repairs, extending the life of assets and improving efficiency & sustainability.

Our award-winning Quantum RF Asphaltene Analyzer*, installed in flowlines from reservoir to refineries, is used for permanent online monitoring and prediction of asphaltene deposition onset. 

The raw data uses a combination of GHz radio-frequencies and a large magnetic field to produce the information needed to manage and control the asphaltene deposition. Our Quantum Vision software* then converts the raw data into actionable information for the operator of the oilfield. The Vision software connects with the sensor to provide key insights that allow the operator to replace large and expensive equipment traditionally used to monitor buildup or damage. On top of this, we anticipate a predictive benefit, as the Vision software leverages data to identify when a well is likely to fail.

*Mark of MicroSilicon 

MicroSilicon’s proprietary platform drives recurring revenue through a Solution a Service (SaaS) business model with the capacity to expand to additional services and solutions on the same core platform. Our multi-unit, multi-year contracts are subscription-based and incorporate analytics, interpretation and consulting, allowing us to build long-term relationships with customers. 

Our expansion strategy involves partnering with smaller, local companies to create attractive in-country value; leveraging our existing relationships for choice opportunities in select areas, markets and verticals; and partnering with established, deeply knowledgeable players within respective verticals. 

With one of our biggest customers, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), we’re looking to maximize value from every barrel to deliver the greatest possible return while meeting the world’s growing demand for energy efficiency. In numbers, this means enabling ADNOC to increase production by 30,000 bpd (~$1B/year) by resolving the issues related to asphaltene build-up. ADNOC has forecasted that our technology will save them as much as $19M over 5 years while reducing chemical costs by up to 20%.

In the short term, we’ll be solving asphaltene problems for operators in traditional wells while also forming partnerships with operators looking to increase oil production by injecting CO2. Across the next 5-10 years we plan to expand into mapping chemical fingerprints against the injection sweep, unlocking serious revenue opportunities well beyond our current $2.7B* addressable market.

The Market

MicroSilicon is one of the first movers in the largely unexplored digital flow assurance market

The total addressable market for digital flow assurance is an estimated $2.7B*, with the biggest applications for MicroSilicon’s technology in the Middle East, Gulf of Mexico and Central America—regions which correlate with booming oil exploration and production.

*Market assessment conducted internally by MicroSilicon.

*Market assessment conducted internally by MicroSilicon.

With our ongoing contracts with major oil producers in the Middle East and Offshore Gulf of Mexico, we believe we are already punching above our weight in terms of accessing global markets. We expect this momentum will only increase as we expand our footprint to cover Central America and Brazil, and we make further hardware and software extensions to improve production and efficiency.

Our customers have told us that we have no direct competitors*, an advantage that is further strengthened by our unique proprietary technology, cumulative experience and growing patent portfolio - a list consisting of 16 granted and licensed patents with more patents currently pending. From here, our differentiation will only continue to increase over time, setting us up for further opportunity and success.

Our Traction

$1.6M in paid pilot projects with several of the world's top oil producers, with another $1M in our pipeline

MicroSilicon’s Quantum RF Asphaltene Analyzer was launched in 2018 and successfully commercialized in 2021. To date, more than $1.6M has been generated through paid pilot projects with several of the world’s top oil producers, including contracts with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).  

Following an 18-month inline prototype pilot in West Texas, we raised $1M to engineer and manufacture fully QHSE-certified units that have since completed two pilots in the Middle East and another in the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the disruptions caused by COVID-19, we've had no canceled projects and all of our pilots have received customer funding. 

Our innovative work has led to a number of awards, grants and recognitions. MicroSilicon was awarded Breakthrough Research of The Year at ADIPEC 2021 and the 2021 iChemE Research Project Award, and was a finalist at the 2021 S&P Global Energy Awards, as well as 2018 & 2021 World Oil Awards. We also received a highly competitive $225K Phase I NSF/SBIR Award, as well as $500K from the Department of Energy specifically for fracture mapping.

Repeat customer orders will propel us towards multi-unit, multi-year service agreements with more of the world’s largest energy companies, with a continued focus on the Middle East, Gulf of Mexico and Central America. We believe we can extend the idea of chemical fingerprinting to not just one well but the entire reservoir, an approach that has already been proven on two CO2-injection pilot tests in the US. 

We’re in the process of developing additional technology, including fracture mapping technology and cement monitoring technology, both of which we plan to pilot in 2023. All of this will enable us to explore industrial applications beyond flow assurance.

5 Days Left to Invest

While our StartEngine campaign is coming to a close, we continue to see robust customer demand and we are ramping up 2023 activity to meet the new orders  If you would like to add to your investment, now would be a great time!!

As an example of 2023 preparations, below is our Field Operations Manager, John-Henry, surveying the new area that we have just rented for final assembly and testing of QRF Asphaltene Analyzer systems. With four devices on order so far, our old lab space was just too small to handle this growth in manufacturing activity.


Contract awarded for over $800K. A great way to start the year!

MicroSilicon finalized today a significant contract with a major Middle East Operator to provide advanced asphaltene monitoring on three wells over a nine-month period beginning later this year. The contract value is more than $800K.  “These deployments will allow us to establish the value proposition of real-time digital fluid data for managing complicated flow assurance problems in one of the biggest onshore fields in the area”, said Omar Kulbrandstad, CEO of MicroSilicon, “We see this contract as the beginning of long expansion of services in the country and that will further establish MicroSllicon as the leader of advanced quantum products in the oil industry”.


$1.9M in Cumulative Revnue

We received a supplemental purchase order related to an existing client. That puts us above $1.9M in cumulative revenue. Our revenue ytd is now almost double compared to full-year 2021.  Sounds like a good reason for a Holiday Celebration!

Please note that our campaign will close Feb 7th 2023, so if you are thinking to invest [or to invest more] now would be a good time!

Wishing our investors best wishes for the Holiday Season and we are all looking forward to an exciting New Year!

Energy Tech Review is live

As previously noted, MicroSilicon has been selected as one of the Top 10 Energy Tech Startups 2022. The "paper" copy of the magazine will distribute in January, and will include a full page ad for our services, but the online version of the article is live now.

The magazine notes that our unique microsensor technology designed for harsh environments has enabled clients to directly address one of the most challenging problems for operators during oil production, namely the build of wax and asphaltene in both the pumping equipment and the tubing and pipelines used to convoy that oil. The full article is here::


MicroSilicon Revenue Update

MicroSilicon is pleased to announce that cumulative revenue since inception now exceeds $1.8M with over 80% growth compared to entire year 2022. All of MicroSilicon's existing customers are in discussion to extend their contracts or have already extended them. We also have new customers placing orders for new systems.


Notice of Material Change in Offering

[The following is an automated notice from the StartEngine team].

Hello! Recently, a change was made to the MicroSilicon offering. Here's an excerpt describing the specifics of the change:

Issuer is extending the campaign end date

When live offerings undergo changes like these on StartEngine, the SEC requires that certain investments be reconfirmed. If your investment requires reconfirmation, you will be contacted by StartEngine via email with further instructions.


200K - Thanks everyone!!

The MicroSilicon team is delighted to announce that we have reached a milestone target of $200K. This is truly thanks to all of you investors and we are looking forward to an exciting future together. We do have some more announcements in the pipeline that aren't quite ready yet, so we are going to be keeping the campaign open for one last month to allow that information to get distributed to the investor community.

Thanks again, and let us be the first to wish you all a very Happy Holiday season.


Another customer extends their subscription!!

As MicroSilicon has previously mentioned, our business model is based on a subscription model, not hardware sales. As the year draws to a close, we are expecting multiple customers from around the world to renew their contracts. We have just received another such update from a super-major oil company based in the USA. Based on the potential that they have so far seen from an installation in the Gulf of Mexico, they have submitted a purchase order to extend their $250K subscription for asphaltene monitoring.


End of year renewals have begun

Some good news from one of our customers: a super-major oil company with a market cap of over $100B. They have formally notified us of their intent to renew their annual subscription for asphaltene monitoring! 

A key aspect of MicroSilicon's business model is that we are offering a subscription service, not a "one-off" hardware sale. This business model is somewhat new to the oilfield but is advantageous to both MicroSilicon and its customers (e.g. the analogy is the converter for your cable-box). Our customers can get the benefit of any upgrades in hardware and software, and MicroSilicon gets a secured income stream allowing us to invest in those upgrades.

Nice technology. Besides asphaltenes, pipelines can be clogged by scale, wax, hydrates, biofilms, etc. Can your technology be leveraged to optimize all oilfield chemicals such as scale inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors, biocides, paraffin inhibitors, hydrate inhibitors, etc and (after demonstrating and successful introduction with asphaltenes) will you be looking to do so in the future? Good luck with taking this to the next level.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
