Independent Laboratory Verifies Large-Scale Contamination Removal by OriginOil’s Frack Water Cleanup Technology
|By Business Wire
|August 7, 2014 03:01 AM EDT
OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL),
developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS),
the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of
water, published independent laboratory results verifying dramatic
effectiveness in treating flowback water at a rate greater than 1,000
barrels per day from a disposal site in Western Colorado.
“We knew from early internal lab tests that CLEAN-FRAC™
has outstanding capabilities. Now those results have been verified in a
demonstration-scale system by Lizard Analytical Laboratories, an
independent laboratory located in Grand Junction, Colorado,” stated Lee
Portillo, VP of Engineering for OriginOil. “We are now scheduling
multiple customer site trials and intend to continue to publish
performance results and case studies from these test sites.”
The Lizard Analytical Laboratories test report is available at www.originoil.com/pdf/OriginOil-External-Field-Testing-Report-July-2014.pdf.
These water quality test results complement the recent
announcement regarding the very low CLEAN-FRAC energy usage of 0.22
kwh per barrel of water processed which amounts to about $0.03 per
barrel. Typically oil & gas plays yield water with much higher salinity,
which could lower the energy usage even more. CLEAN-FRAC not only
removes as much as 99 percent of the suspended solids and hydrocarbons,
it has been shown to do so with very low energy usage.
“Many of our potential customers have been asking for these third party
results which we now have available,” said Bill
Charneski, President of OriginOil’s Oil & Gas Division. “Our
expectation is that these results will accelerate our sales process.”
The system tested was OriginOil’s CLEAN-FRAC™ end-to-end system, which
in this case included: the EWS module plus an iSep™
UltraFiltration (UF) membrane system from TriSep
Corporation to provide downstream polishing. CLEAN-FRAC systems can
include advanced downstream treatment steps to meet a customer’s
specific water quality needs.
Contaminant Reduction Numbers
99.6% of Turbidity.
90.3% of Total Suspended Solids.
90.5% of Oil in Water.
Lower Energy Costs
On July 2, OriginOil demonstrated
the very low energy cost of CLEAN-FRAC in treating frac flowback and
produced water during large-scale testing at a salt water disposal well
in Western Colorado, averaging Specific Energy Consumption (SEC) of 0.22
kWh per barrel including pumping and membrane energy.
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.
“We believe the test data for both water quality and energy usage
obtained from the CLEAN-FRAC is outstanding,” stated Bill
Charneski, President of the Oil & Gas Division, “Whether the EWS
technology is licensed to an equipment supplier with complementary
products or is sold as part of CLEAN-FRAC, the technology is ready for
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™ 1500
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

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
