FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: EVTN) announced today that it has received a purchase order for multiple Voraxial® Separators for an offshore Produced Water application in South America. This order is from a joint venture company of the same South American National Oil Company that recently purchased multiple Voraxial Separators for its onshore production facility. EVTN believes there is a high potential for multiple repeat orders over the next several years.
The South American National Oil Company currently processes several hundred thousand barrels of wastewater per day. This sale further extends the use of the Voraxial to both its onshore and offshore facilities for the critical process of separating oil and sand from its produced water. The Voraxial Separators will be used on the customers FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading). This follow-on sale is the first since the initial order from the parent company 2 months ago. The system will be shipped in first quarter 2011.
"The Voraxial offers the separation industry a very cost efficient method of processing and treating wastewater. With limited space and fluid pressure, many operators are looking for a simpler solution than what is currently available in the market. The ability to treat a high volume with no pressure drop requirement and small footprint is a great selling point. Add the ease of installation and operation, energy efficiency, low maintenance and down time, the Voraxial becomes very compelling and attractive to operators," stated John A. DiBella, COO of EVTN.
For this purchase order, the Voraxial® Separators are assembled into a compact automated system consisting of a Voraxial 4000 and a Voraxial 2000 Separator, turbidity meters, flow meters and oil in water analyzers. The compactness of the Voraxial allows for complete turnkey systems to be supplied to reduce cost and increase separation efficiencies. The system is designed to remove both oil and sand from the Produced Water at rates of up to 15,000 barrels per day so that the customer can meet the required specifications to discharge the water.
