Black Mamba Rod Lift and Oil Baron Supply Join Forces, Increasing Run-Times, Preventing Tubing Wear and Cavitation in Progressive Cavity Wells.




After presenting The Black Mamba to one of the largest operators in the region, Westerman’s team jointly agreed, Oil Baron Supply needs to endorse, promote, and provide Black Mamba’s products to the AustraliaNew Zealand market. Jonathan Martin, President for Black Mamba Rod Lift, was encouraged about a long-term cooperation with Oil Baron Supply after initial meetings and the enthusiasm that Westerman and team displayed.  From Martin- “Our innovative design, unlike anything ever seen in the market, was initially designed to address critical buckling loads and sucker rod stability, while increasing erodible wear volume, bearing surface area, product life, flow area, and a drastic reduction in fluid turbulence in reciprocating rod lift wells.  After launching our company and marketing campaign in the US in the second half of 2020, multiple groups came forward asking about The Black Mamba for use in PC wells, as it is a natural fit.  Two or more fins, typically four, which in PC wells consistently spin in one region of the production tubing, provides tubing abrasion at a rate four times higher than the single fin Black Mamba. This is yet another reason how Black Mamba Rod Lift differentiates itself from sucker rod guide manufacturers, bringing entirely new solutions to the artificial lift industry.”

Oil Baron Supply is the exclusive distributor of Black Mamba Rod Lift’s guide products in the Australian & New Zealand markets. The Black Mamba is directly over-molded onto sucker rods and drive rods with a unique, automated manufacturing system, including laser-etching and serialization of every part cross-referenced with cloud-based datalogging of all relevant manufacturing parameters. Each component molded for export to Oil Baron’s region will feature joint branding of Oil Baron Supply and Black Mamba Rod Lift.

2K Games Alienates Players by Adding Unskippable Ads to NBA 2K21




NBA2K21 has advertisements in loading screens.
NBA2K21 has advertisements in loading screens. | 2K Games

2K Games is in the spotlight for adding unskippable advertisements into NBA 2K21, as Stevivor reported Sunday.

The latest installment to the popular basketball game series includes ads for the Oculus Quest 2 in its pre-game loading screens. The ads are unskippable, despite the game’s retail suggested price of $60.

Stevivor offers recorded examples of these advertisements seen on the console versions of the game if you would like to check them out. The experience is the same on PC, according to Stevivor.

NBA 2K21 will be coming to Xbox Series X and S as well as the PlayStation 5 next month. Considering the grief EA caught for instituting a similar move in UFC 4, it will be surprising to see if 2K Games isn’t pressured into removing the in-game ads by the time we get the next-gen release of the game.
