Our Philosophy Runs Deep

Deep River dedicates its considerable expertise to the development and discovery of new technologies creating links between these technologies to transform Alternative energy with a focus on geothermal and solar pond energy. Exploration and Production (E&P) with legacy production and regeneration of existing oil fields by enhanced oil recovery methods, remediation and recycling of oilfield waste.

Value engineering, effective design practices and the diligence of our innovators have led us to solutions that fulfill environmental standards and create reliable revenue streams for our investors and our partner companies.

By combining the expertise of several leading service providers, Deep River is advancing our collective patented process methods to offer innovative E&P waste recycling solutions for the unique problems of the domestic unconventional shale development regions.

Since 1993, Deep River’s founder Richard L. Wynn Jr. has been working to apply alternate energy applications aimed at zero fossil fuels and zero emissions. His deep geothermal methodologies utilize existing E&P drilling and completion techniques to capture deep horizontal and geo-pressured domestic heat resources for baseline power generation.
