Corporate Operations[edit]

The demand for lithium is continuously surging, propelled by increased demand for battery raw materials such as lithium carbonate or lithium hydroxide for the production of batteries used in electric vehicles. The EVs segment is thus the fastest-growing division of the auto industry with Lithium Ion batteries at the heart of the EV revolution. The company recognizes the raw material supply shortage for battery production and the magnificent potential in the Lithium-ion battery supply chain. It uses a USA-made complete lifecycle approach to satisfy the globally soaring demand for lithium-ion battery technology.[2]


Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) Battery[edit]

Barrel owns and operates a 25000 KWh battery pack assembly pilot facility that consumed a $0.68 Million investment in the first phase for UPS, Solar, 2-Wheeler, and 3-Wheeler applications. The investment aimed for a peak business of approximately $3.42 Million by 2023.

Phase 2 of the automation project incorporated a 50000 KWh battery pack assembly with an expansion investment budget of $1.37 Million, with its separate land and building. The second phase aims for $6.85 Million in business by 2025, including MWh Energy Storage Systems and exports.

Phase 3 of the project involves the establishment of 400 MWh Lithium Iron Phosphate cell manufacturing beside the battery pack assembly plant. The project is scheduled to consume $16.44 Million in investment, with a business target of $54.80 Million by 2029. The execution of this phase of the project is expected between 2025 and 2027.[3]


Barrel Energy Inc. was incorporated under Nevada state laws on January 27, 2014. It was initially formed to invest in the oil and gas sector of the energy industry. The company amended its articles of incorporation in April 2019 to increase its number of authorized common shares from 75,000,000 to 450,000,000. The firm entered a 10-year land Lease on a 602 acre of land in Tehama County, California, with Crocker Acana, LLC in May 2019, with the intent of growing hemp. Its efforts to acquire a permit to cultivate hemp on the property from Tehama County hit rock bottom and the firm has not reapplied after a thorough examination of the state and federal regulations.Following COVID-19’s heavy impacts on the oil and gas industry, the company reviewed the changing business landscape and opted for the lithium battery business in April 2020. It adjusted its strategy to target areas with potential economic deposits of Lithium, Cobalt, and Graphite, that would thrive in the growing demand for battery material.[4]

Market and Industry[edit]

Lithium-ion batteries have seen an exponential rise in popularity since they are easily rechargeable. They are widely used in cellphones, computers, electric vehicles, and large-scale electric storage. Demand for lithium batteries is forecasted to outpace the current lithium production by 2030. Countries like China have been erecting new battery factories, only propelling increased demand for Lithium. The global demand for lithium is expected to surge by approximately 650% by 2027. Barrel Energy looks to capitalize on the bull market for Lithium by concentrating its strategy around the supply of raw materials for lithium battery production.[5]
