Rocky Mountain Brain Institute brings Brainwave Optimization to the Western Slope

Rocky Mountain Brain Institute has just opened a facility in Rifle, to offer Brainwave Optimization to clients from west of the Continental Divide. The office is operated under the management of Malcom Shaw, a certified technologist in the modality, and licensed by Brain State Technologies of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Brainwave Optimization is an effective, holistic and noninvasive method of achieving greater brain balance and harmony. Improving brain function has shown to help with injuries, including sports injuries and concussions, eating and other compulsive disorders, stress, pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, sleeplessness, addictive dependencies and challenges to learning and performance.

Shaw brings with him a history of fieldwork in hospice care and pastoral counseling in the Denver area, and 20 years of experience as a company-owner providing training for enterprises in both the private and public sectors.

WPX recognized for reducing emissions

WPX Energy has been recognized by the state for its commitment to reducing emissions and helping protect air quality.

One of the rigs WPX uses for drilling in the state’s Piceance Basin in western Colorado runs entirely on natural gas. WPX deployed the new rig last year.

During initial operations in 2013, the rig saved WPX Energy more than $7,000 in daily fuel costs, and reduced fuel consumption by 85 percent. With less fuel required, truck traffic was also reduced — resulting in less dust, noise and impact to roadways, which benefits neighbors and the local community.

Successfully using the natural gas rig has led WPX to convert six other rigs in Western Colorado to dual-fuel engines that use a combination of both natural gas with diesel.

This is the 16th honor WPX has received from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. The agency also has recognized WPX for water management, water recycling, water quality protection, green completions, use of new technology, reclamation and best practices.
