Vivakor Acquires Next Generation Technology for Oil Extraction in a $10M Transaction

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - February 05, 2015) - Vivakor Inc. (OTC PINK: VIVK) announced it has acquired a new, proprietary technology in a $10M transaction for intellectual property that extracts oil and hydrocarbons in a socially responsible, environmentally friendly manner from oil sands. In addition to its next-generation disruptive precious metal extraction technology that has been operating successfully for the past two (2) years, Vivakor has substantiated through extensive lab testing the viability of this new technology and has thus added another major advantage to its portfolio with the ability to extract high demand natural resources for oil and hydrocarbons in the US in a clean, eco-friendly manner.

The Company is focused in very specific market areas where there is a substantial advantage to utilizing Vivakor's technologies and methods for extraction and processing of high value resources. Vivakor's intellectual properties are all proprietary and proving to be industry disruptive with a very low cost basis in their operational model. The potential for licensing and other revenue producing efforts is apparent and the Company stated it will disclose further the details of its push into the Energy Sector in a subsequent release. 

Vivakor continues to drive shareholder value through its strategic acquisitions, partnerships and overall direction which add significantly to their balance sheet. The Company believes that this particular market area within Oil and Gas has the potential for adding millions of dollars to Vivakor's Total Asset base within a reasonably short period of time and enables them to scale and grow this division seamlessly and aggressively particularly in a down market with tremendous upside. Vivakor's model for ventures has been to return significant amounts of value beyond their initial investment.
