Purestream Technologies, in collaboration with researchers from Utah State University’s Research Foundation (USURF) Energy Dynamics Lab (EDL), has developed new technology which allows oil and gas producers an onsite solution for air emissions and waste water. This groundbreaking technology offers both an economic incentive to producers, as well as greatly reducing the impact of oil and gas waste on the environment.
“The strategic partnership that EDL has entered into with Purestream Technology has already made significant progress in creating the world’s first comprehensive and environmentally responsible oil and gas well head solution – the Trilogy System,” said Dr. Douglas K. Lemon, Director, Energy Dynamics Laboratory. “USURF is recognized throughout the world as a leader in thermal management technologies for space-based and terrestrial applications and we’ll use some of those technologies to help provide oil and gas well owners with an affordable way to comply with current environmental regulations and potential future legislation that will affect their industry.”
The key components of the Trilogy system are:
1. ZAP (Zero Air Shed Potential)
2. Scrubbing and Evaporation
3. Combined Heat and Power Generation
It is the combination of these processes which makes Trilogy truly unique in the industry. Chris Jahn has more than 40 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and is an inventor of produced water systems. Jahn says, “The Trilogy System, developed by Purestream, is one of those rare oil and gas technologies that improves process efficiency, increases profitability and benefits our global environment – all in one state-of-the-art system.”
Waste water and air emissions have emerged as the leading environmental battles in the oil and gas industry. Producers are pressured to find solutions that meet the ever-changing state and federal guidelines. The Trilogy system offers an onsite solution, restoring oil or gas production waste water to better than drinking water standards (268ppm v. 350ppm), reducing VOCs by 99% and providing Hepa quality air filtration.
In addition, Purestream has engineered a process to convert recycled power into a clean, commercially viable product. The power can be loaded onto a power grid for sale on the wholesale market, or it can be utilized to power various environmentally conscious initiatives or activities.
INNOVATIVE, ONSITE WASTE WATER & AIR EMISSION
SOLUTION FOR OIL AND GAS PRODUCERS
The Utah State University Research Foundation (USURF) was created in 1967 as a nonprofit corporation owned by Utah State University. Its purpose is to provide an organization for the management and physical support of applied research, the discovery of new ideas and the advancement of innovative technologies.
Founded in 2009, the Energy Dynamics Lab (EDL) was formed to focus on meeting the energy challenges of tomorrow by helping unlock our vast domestic energy resources in an environmentally friendly and economical viable manner. EDL is leading the way in developing resources, technologies and systems that will be critical to the energy security of the United States in the 21st century and beyond.
- Water is disposed of at pad locations
- Water trucking costs are significantly reduced due to localized pad water disposal
- A standard Trilogy unit can evaporate 500 barrels of water per day
- The final Trilogy water product is 268 ppm - less than the EPA requires for normal tap water
