Hot Oil Transport is a supplier of asphalt materials that provides Southwest Liquid Asphalt & Emulsions with materials. Southwest Liquid Asphalt & Emulsions is a major supplier of polymerized asphalt in Southern Nevada.

According to Vivakor, a clean energy technologies and environmental solutions company, this deal could generate as much as $250 million over the course of its 10-year contract. However, that all depends on if the company can get its Vernal, Utah facility running at 100%.

The deal allows for Vivakor to supply Hot Oil Transport with 50,000 tons of ratable asphalt cement annually over 10 years. Based on current prices, this could generate sales of $25 million to $30 million for Vivakor per year.

Matt Nicosia, CEO of Vivakor, said this in the press release boosting VIVK stock higher today.

“As this is our first long-term contract for sale of our asphaltic binder, it is an important milestone for Vivakor. This could be a significant event for shareholders as this project, when fully scaled, could contribute meaningful profits.”

VIVK stock is experiencing heavy trading today following the contract news. This has more than 51 million shares trading hands as of this writing. That’s a massive leap over its daily average trading volume of 184,000 shares.

VIVK stock is up 134% as of Wednesday morning.
