    • FTK says part of the $0.03 loss is the result of one-time items that will be discussed in tomorrow's earnings report and conference call.

    • Solazyme (SZYM +10.9%) opens sharply higher after announcing a strategic agreement with Flotek (FTK +2.8%) to develop and market advanced drilling fluid technologies, including globally commercializing and marketing the Flocapso drilling fluid additive.
    • The two companies say lab and commercial testing show that the Flocapso additive will allow the use of water-based fluids in wells that previously required more expensive and invasive oil-based products.
    • In addition, FTK will market SZYM's Encapso lubricant, the first commercially available, biodegradable encapsulated lubricant for drilling fluids in certain Middle Eastern markets.

    • Sales of Flotek's (FTK +5.4%) Complex nano fluid that makes shale oil drillers more productive could triple in two years, Barron's writes, helping to send shares sharply higher today.
    • FTK believes its market share is set to expand from ~5% of U.S. wells today to 15% by the end of 2015; if that's the case, revenues for the fluid could grow from ~$100M to ~$300M in the next two years.
    • FTK has been building credibility for a while, and now that management is beefing up its market effort, Barrington Research says, adding that "2014 is the year it's all going to come together for Flotek."

    Flotek (FTK) is down 10% after announcing in-line guidance for full-year 2011. Gross margins expanded to 42% from 37% in 2010. Operating income as a percentage of revenue for Q4 is expected to exceed 20%. Flotek decreased its debt by 50% in 2011. Might be a good buying opportunity on the dip; Flotek will be presenting today at Independent Petroleum Association of America Florida Oil & Gas Symposium. (submitted by Michael Filloon)
