LAS VEGAS, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivakor, Inc. (VIVK), a technology and asset acquisition company with a focus in the area of natural resources, announced today the closing of a multi-million dollar financing contract with NDH Royalty Source, for the funding of its Royalty III Remediation Processing Center (RPC).

Vivakor’s Royalty III RPC, based on its patent pending technology for remediation and extraction of Hydrocarbons from soil material, is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2019. Vivakor operates the RPC’s through its VivaVentures Energy Group Inc. division currently in Utah and Kuwait.  The need for RPC’s throughout the world applies to any hydrocarbon mixed in soil remediation and certain Oil Sands operations.

Vivakor Chief Executive Officer Matt Nicosia, stated, “We are very pleased with the long-anticipated relationship with NDH, whose team has over 30 years of experience financing oil and gas projects in the United States.  This Remediation Processing Center will be located in Utah to process the prolific hydrocarbons in the Oil Sands projects in Asphalt Ridge, or other sites in Utah.  We anticipate placing over 30 RPC’s in Utah during our Fundamental Revenue Growth phase increasing the value of the assets in Utah and cleaning up the environment.”

NDH Royalty Source President, Mike Keown, stated, ”No Dry Holes! We have been searching for investments in the oil and gas sector that are revolutionary, proven, and specifically increase the value of U.S. resources.  We view the Vivakor Nanotechnology Remediation and Production as the next evolution in royalty investing that reduces the capital risk significantly as there is no “Dry Hole” risk because the Oil Sand material is either on surface or mineable.  We look forward to funding further RPC’s in the future as we see that Vivakor not only increases the value of assets and oil production in the USA, but does so in an environmentally responsible and beneficial manner. This is of key importance to us.”
