Oxane Materials Names Clay Border VP of Sales

Oxane Materials, a Houston-based marketer and manufacturer of Advanced Ceramic Proppant™, today announced the addition of Clay Border as Vice President of Sales. In his role, Border will lead Oxane’s sales team with a sharp focus on their customer’s performance and return utilizing Oxane’s Advanced Ceramic Proppant™.

“Both Oxane and its customers will benefit greatly from the depth and breadth of experience in both business and the energy industry that Clay brings to the table,” said Chris Coker, president of Oxane Materials.

Oxane’s patented Advanced Ceramic Proppant™ travels more deeply and more uniformly into oil and gas formations while also affording a more conductive channel for oil and gas to flow to the wellbore. As a result, more hydrocarbons are produced at a more rapid rate relative to wells propped with commodity proppants.

“The opportunity to join a high growth company that is involved in the demanding completions segment of the oil and gas sector was very exciting,” said Border. “I am excited about Oxane’s proprietary Advanced Ceramic Proppant™ and its inherent benefit to our partners’ performance and valuation based on increasing initial production, cumulative production and estimated ultimate recovery”

Previously, Mr. Border was managing director for Donovan Capital, an energy focused investment bank that provided merchant bank, advisory and capital raising services to private upstream energy companies. Also, Mr. Border was vice president within the securities division of Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co., a leading energy investment banking and research firm based in Houston, Texas. Before entering the securities industry, Mr. Border was a technical sales engineer for a division of Emerson Electric and Reliance Electric (acquired by Rockwell Automation) where he focused on the energy, petrochemical and refining industries. Mr. Border graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, with a BBA Engineering Route to Business.
