In October 2013, Colorado-based Industrial Systems Inc. (ISI) became OriginOil’s pioneer customer for its Pay per Barrel program. Since then, ISI has become a full-fledged licensee, and Pay per Barrel is an integral part of the commercial toolkit for all OriginOil licensees.Learn More
ISI provides manufacturing, construction services, and solutions to the mine, oil & gas, and power industries in the US. For over twenty years, it has provided major capital engineering, procurement, manufacturing, project management, and construction services for multi-million dollar projects.
A major portion of ISI’s business is design and manufacturing of permanent and portable tanks up to 53,000 barrels. ISI believes that these tanks are superior in design and construction to any other portable tank in the oil and gas drilling or fracking industry. ISI is now developing systems “Powered by OriginOil” to expand into frac flowback and produced water recycling. (View Brochure.)
In April 2014, OriginOil announced that ISI would host the first of a series of showcases to demonstrate the successful removal of frac flowback and produced water pollutants with the P1000 demonstration-scale unit.
“We are excited about adding EWS technology to our existing line of movable panel tanks,” said Bob Isom, CEO/President of ISI. “We’ve partnered with OriginOil through the pay-per-barrel financing program, so that our customers can start cleaning frack water in real time without the capital expenditure up front. This model is how the industry can adopt new technologies fast.”
Isom added: “We have been actively promoting the EWS technology for months and have a very long list of customers who want to see the equipment in action. We expect multiple orders from the event.”
In May 2014, OriginOil signed a non-exclusive licensing agreement with Burgan One Commercial Establishment (BG-1), to design, manufacture and distribute water treatment products that incorporate OriginOil technology for the oil & gas and other waste treatment markets in the Middle East.Learn More
Burgan One is a leading regional service provider firm in the oil and gas sector. It focuses on upstream activities covering the Kuwaiti market, and its relationships in Iran, Syria, Iraq and Egypt give it regional reach. BG-1 is an agent for Japanese conglomerates Sumitomo and Samsung C&T in Kuwait.
Burgan One has helped conduct a number of flagship projects for the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), such as treating high saline effluent produced water, soil remediation and cleaning of oil contaminated lakes, and desalination of high saline water.
“We are very excited to be the first to introduce OriginOil’s innovative technology to the Middle East,” said Musab Al-Yaseen, CEO of Burgan One. “Water treatment in the region is gaining great attention due to increased water production volume and focus on environmental regulations, and I see EWS playing a major role in developing an environmentally friendly and economical approach.”
“We at BG-1 foresee a number of different applications for the EWS technology in the oil and gas fields of the Middle East,” said Farouk Al-Zanki, until recently CEO of the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC). “Our initial projects will be targeted here in Kuwait, but once proven here, we believe the rest of the Gulf States will open up.”
In June 2014, OriginOil announced that E3 Services and Solutions, LLC (E3), an acquirer and integrator of industrial technologies in fuel, food and health sectors, has agreed to license EWS for integration in systems designed to reclaim water from hydraulic fracturing and industrial operations.Learn More
Memphis, Tennessee based E3 intends to develop and further commercialize key OriginOil technologies for oil and gas water reclamation, aquaculture and feed stock production. E3 also plans to partner with OriginOil on research and development projects to further refine the company’s suite of technologies in the field.
“E3 is a dynamic technology integrator and with a shared vision to advance innovative solutions commercially,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil CEO. “We plan to partner with their team in every step of the process to roll out products and services in the frack and industrial water reclamation spaces, as well as in our clean tech business. We welcome them to the growing OriginOil team!”
In August 2014, OriginOil announced it was selected by Gulf Energy, an oil service company with major customers in Oman, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, as the technology provider for the company’s new oil services business in frack and produced water treatment and reuse. Gulf Energy will implement OriginOil’s OriginClear™ Petro (formerly CLEAN-FRAC™) system, equipped with the company’s core technology Electro Water Separation (EWS), throughout the Middle East & North Africa (MENA).Learn More
“We at Gulf Energy believe that the Middle East is ready to address its water scarcity and environmental concerns. For months, we have researched and finally found the technology we believe to be the best available to anchor our water treatment systems,” stated Yasser Al Barami, Chief Commercial Officer of Gulf Energy SAOC. “We are ready to start building and selling systems across the MENA region. To enable this, our first step will be to purchase an OriginClear P1000 demonstration system from OriginOil.”
Gulf Energy reports that it currently works with almost all of the major operators in Oman including Petroleum Development of Oman (PDO), Occidental Petroleum Company (OXY), PTT Exploration and Production Plc (PTTEP), MEDCO, Petrogas E&P and Daleel Petroleum.
In July 2014, OriginOil announced that Pearl H20, LLC installed a commercial scale 1200 bbl/day Pearl Blue™ treatment system last month and began a performance testing phase for treating frac flowback and produced water from the Monterey shale formation.Learn More
The Pearl Blue treatment system embeds OriginOil’s proprietary Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) process into a complete mobile system which Pearl H20 believes is the most cost effective way to deliver a fracking fluid with no scaling salts. Removing scale is an essential step in recycling flowback water. Recycling water in this manner saves scarce California fresh water, and reduces the heavy trucking and disposal costs involved in hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking’. (View Brochure.)
“The Pearl Blue System is a complete engineered solution that provides the optimal treatment of flowback or produced water in a cost effective turnkey package. The system provides high quality treatment necessary for reuse, removes the majority of scaling salts, and provides a clear, odorless, oil free water ready for reuse ” said Andy Komor, VP of Environmental Water for PACE.
In October 2012, OriginOil announced that it had signed its first agreement to license its EWS process with Pearl H20, a Pacific Advanced Civil Engineering, Inc (PACE) spinoff, and OriginOil’s first licensee. The agreement was the first in the company’s “Powered by OriginOil™” strategy of deploying OriginOil’s unique technology across global markets to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who will integrate it seamlessly into their systems and under their own brand.
In May of 2013, OriginOil announced it has selected Los Angeles-based Clean Water Technology (CWT), to manufacture the company’s Electro Water Separation systems. With CWT providing the manufacturing expertise and Pacific Advanced Civil Engineering providing the professional detail engineering expertise, OriginOil has built a strong commercial team.Learn More
“At this phase, Clean Water Technology represents what we need in a manufacturer for the rollout and commercialization of this technology,” said Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginOil. “When we had to scale up fast for our Australian algae harvesting pilot program, CWT delivered. We’re pleased that they have found a way to manufacture these units quickly so that we can prove ourselves in the oil fields this summer.”
In 2011, OriginOil first announced it had selected Pacific Advanced Civil Engineering, Inc. (PACE) of Fountain Valley, California, to fast-track the rollout of its systems in response to immediate customer demand. In early 2012, PACE found that OriginOil’s algae harvesting process was able to remove 98% of hydrocarbons from a sample of West Texas oil well ‘frac flowback’ water in the first stage alone.Learn More
Soon after, OriginOil agreed to work with PACE to collaborate with oil field operators in Texas and elsewhere to improve petroleum recovery and water cleaning for re-use at well sites. By June of that year, OriginOil had retained PACE to engineer the first commercial units, designed to help process up to 1 barrel of petroleum-contaminated “frac flowback” water per minute, or up to 60,000 gallons per day.
Founded over 25 years ago, PACE offers a wide range of engineering services related to water, wastewater, stormwater management and water resource permitting and regulatory compliance to ensure projects are both economically viable and environmentally sustainable.
