V6, Generate Oil From Waste

On average, 1% to 5% of daily oil production is sludge (unresolved emulsion). Basically, sludge is a blend of hydrocarbon, water and inorganic sediment. Sludge is highly viscous and non-pumpable. Currently, to recover crude oil from sludge is a long, complex and costly process. In most operations, sludge is classified as waste which is disposed off. Over time, if the sludge is not disposed, it will accumulate and create tank capacity issues, environmental pollution and increase operational cost.

For more than 50 years, crude oil production technology advancement has been incrementally slow, with almost insignificant change occurring. With V6  technology, the oil recovery process is revolutionized. V6 allows for the quick harvesting of crude oil from sludge at low production cost. On average, V6 recovery factor is 95% or higher. V6 is a strategic technology that will bring oil production industry to another level.


Advantages of V6

V6 developed based on nano chemistry technology. This gives significant advantages to extend the potential of the chemistry solution. Typically, oil recovery from ‘unconventional reserve’ requires huge amount of acid, heating equipment and complex operation.

  • No heat required
  • Non-acidic solution
  • Low dosage required
  • Quick turnaround time
As the photos above, the result show the sludge mixed with V6 is liquified. The sludge viscosity reduces by 90%. In addition, 95% hydrocarbon has been recovered from this sludge. This test proved V6 works even without heat and mechanical mixture. In addition, V6 dosage required is low(less than 400ppm) and V6 is non-acidic solution. Hence, it is safe and non-corrosive.

A lab simulation test was designed to see the performance of V6. The purpose of this test is to see the oil percentage recovery using V6. This to ensure V6 can work in any environment which was simulated in the lab. As the picture shown below, two sets of sludge were prepared. Both mixed with crude oil and one set mixed with V6. The test was conducted in 20 degree Celsius or below room temperature. Both samples were soaked for 4 hours to see the result. The test was repeated with different dosage of V6. Hence, we can find the most optimum dosage for V6 to perform.
