Enviro Voraxia Technology, Inc. entered into a contract with one of the world's largest oil companies to deploy a Voraxial Separator for produced water (oil/water) separation in the North Slope oil fields of Alaska.
The Voraxial Separator is capable of efficiently separating large volumes of produced water while significantly decreasing requirements for energy, weight, space and expense. These elements are even more precious on offshore platforms.
The ability to efficiently separate produced water waste streams (oil and water) has enormous economical and environmental consequences for the oil production industry. Produced water comprises over 98% of the total waste volume generated by the oil and gas industry, making it the largest volume waste stream associated with oil and gas production.
Interest in EVTN's separation systems has accelerated since Shell Technology Ventures, a registered company of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, showcased EVTN's line of Voraxial Separators in their booth at the 22nd SPE/IADC Drilling Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam during February 2005.
"We are pleased that major oil companies are now recognizing the Voraxial Separator as a solution to their produced water requirements," said John A. DiBella, vice president of Enviro Voraxial Technology. "We believe that more deployments will occur in the near future due to the increased exposure, benefits and awareness of the Voraxial Separator."
