Houston, TX — Nano Gas™ had shown a 200% increase in oil production at a light oil well.
PCT’s Catholyte Free™ showed a 4,000% better oil cut at Intertek, an independent lab. PCT thought that adding nanobubbles could provide even better results. PCT makes Catholyte Free™ with saltwater and electricity. Nano Gas™ makes nanobubbles from water and gas. PCT thought that mixing Catholyte Free™ and Nano Gas™ bubbles (Nano-Catholyte™) would also work on heavy oil. Intertek’s testing of Nano-Catholyte™ showed an amazing 5,200% boost in heavy oil recovery!
The results convinced Doug Humphreys, CEO of Maverick Energy Services, to test Nano-Catholyte™ in his heavy oil wells. Maverick has used steam (SAGD) to produce oil from this field. SAGD is costly, energy intensive, and produces toxic wastewater. At low oil prices, SAGD was too costly.
Now, Maverick has started seeing oil production from Nano-Catholyte™ at a fraction of SAGD’s cost. Doug Humphreys said: “I’ve never seen an oil cut like this from my oil field.” Doug decided to expand the test to his light oil well in Holdenville, OK.
Canadian oil companies use SAGD for their oil sands. As a result, Canada has struggled with over one trillion liters of toxic wastewater. David Holcomb, Ph.D., President of Pentagon Technical Services, said: “Nano-Catholyte™ could change enhanced oil recovery around the world and eliminate toxic oils sands wastewater. It is so effective that the industry could re-open old, abandoned wells.”
PCT and Nano Gas™ have filed for a patent on Nano-Catholyte™. Len Bland, CEO of Nano Gas Technologies said: “We’re excited to partner with PCT. Both of our companies, the entire oil industry, and the environment will benefit from this revolutionary product.”
