What We're About and Our Motivation

Our Motivation


Our Purpose 

The reason we exist. 

To secure global energy needs in an environmentally sustainable way.




Our Vision 

The goal of our purpose. 

To enable all people to have access to affordable heat, fuel and electricity while maintaining a healthy environment for ourselves and future generations. 



Our Mission 

The path to our purpose and the behaviors we follow. 

To help our clients increase the production and recovery of natural gas from their existing wells with minimal human and capital resources and minimal environmental impact. 

We minimize the need for costly human and capital resources by providing a comprehensive End2End natural gas service enabled by our subsurface compressor systems.

We minimize environmental impact by mitigating the need to drill and frack new natural gas wells, producing net-zero carbon emission natural gas when possible by using renewable energy to power our subsurface compressors, and maintaining our carbon neutrality as a company.



Our Foundation

Wise Beyond Our Years 

Upwing Energy is an innovative offshoot of Calnetix Technologies, formed to focus on the production of hydrocarbons. Calnetix is a recognized industry leader in high-speed systems, supplying high-speed permanent magnet motors and generators, magnetic bearings and variable speed drives (VSDs) over the past two decades to a wide variety of industries throughout the world. The company's product portfolio includes electric drive systems for offshore and subsea oil and gas applications.




Our Facility 

Upwing Energy’s headquarters, engineering and manufacturing facility is co-located with affiliate company Calnetix Technologies on a seven-acre campus in Cerritos, California.

Upwing Energy has a state-of-the-art test facility for its Subsurface Compressor System™ (SCS) for the artificial lift of natural gas. Test cells are used to verify and validate the unique operating conditions of SCS. Upwing engineers use bench testing and containment rigs to validate each module independently, measure system performance and functionally test full assemblies. This functional testing allows for the creation of a unique performance map that can be used for diagnostic and prognostic health monitoring, once the unit is installed in a client’s well. Upwing’s facility also has a flow loop to simulate downhole conditions with flow rates up to 1 million SCFD and the ability to boost rates further on demand.




Intellectual Property


Our Intellectual Property 

Upwing Energy has been granted core technology patents by affiliate company Calnetix Technologies for exclusive use in the downhole rotating space. These core technologies include permanent magnet (PM) machines, magnetic bearings, variable speed drives (VSD) and system level controls. Other intellectual property provided by Calnetix includes proprietary PM design tools and manufacturing processes. In addition, Upwing has filed its own system level and application related patents for downhole rotating devices, including for its Subsurface Compressor Systems (SCS) and Magnetic Drive Systems (MDS). The company has 47 U.S. filings and 28 foreign filings to date.
