OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL),
developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS),
the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of
water, demonstrated the very low energy cost of its Electro Water
Separation™ (EWS) technology in treating frac flowback and produced
water during large-scale testing at a salt water disposal well in
“We knew from early lab tests that our energy usage was very low, but
now in the field, we see that the numbers are even more impressive than
expected,” said Lee
Portillo, OriginOil VP of Engineering. “Our Specific Energy
Consumption (SEC) averaged 0.22 kWh per barrel including pumping and
For comparison, these CLEAN-FRAC numbers are more than 60 percent lower
than Halliburton’s published energy usage of just over 0.56 kWh per
barrel for its CleanWave
Mini-Water Treatment system.
“While using less energy than a leading competitor, CLEAN-FRAC also
removes a greater percentage of contaminants, while eliminating most
bacteria and dissolved organics, a real challenge in high-volume
applications,” continued Portillo. “CLEAN-FRAC is the optimal solution
for chemical-free oil and gas water treatment.”
The system tested was OriginOil’s CLEAN-FRAC™ end-to-end system,
configured with an iSep™ UltraFiltration (UF) membrane
system from TriSep
Corporation to provide downstream polishing. CLEAN-FRAC systems are
packaged with best-in-class downstream steps to meet a customer’s
specific water quality needs. (See
On 27 May 2014, a showcase was held at the headquarters of OriginOil
licensee, Industrial Systems Inc. (ISI)
on Colorado’s Western Slope, the showcase featured the CLEAN-FRAC™ field
scale system (photo),
which is designed to process frac flowback and produced water at a rate
of up to 1500 barrels per day (bpd), to the exact purity levels that

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
