OriginOil’s CLEAN-FRAC™ Water Treatment System Yields Successful First Field Results

OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB: OOIL), the developer of a breakthrough energy production process for the oil and algae industries, today announced its CLEAN-FRAC™ water treatment system for the oil and gas industry successfully completed its first field testing on produced water at an oil well in Lost Hills near Bakersfield, California.

The field trials demonstrated that the process removes almost all organics, suspended solids and bacteria from produced water, demonstrating the potential impact of OriginOil’s technology in enabling oil operators to extract more petroleum from process water and reduce fresh water use. A video documenting the success of OriginOil’s Mobile Lab is available at www.vimeo.com/60586952.

Les Cufaude and Dale Hankins of Pacific Coast Exploration hosted the testing and were surprised that the system was able to recover as much oil from the water as it did. Until now, they had believed that their produced water was almost entirely oil free. Cufaude remarked on how much more oil the company could recover and sell. Hankins, a 40-year industry veteran, stated, “I see many applications for your technology in the oil patch. OriginOil has a winner here.”

“These first field trials confirmed what we’ve seen in the lab— up to a 99% reduction of organics in a matter of minutes,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil’s Chief Executive Officer. “This marks a major milestone as we refine and scale our technology for commercial deployment in the oil and gas industry. By increasing the amount of recoverable oil for producers, we have the potential for a compelling economic benefit. We now plan to take this equipment to Texas for similar demonstrations in San Antonio and Houston in late March.”

The CLEAN-FRAC system is a chemical free, continuous process that employs low-energy technologies to decontaminate produced or ‘frac flowback’ water. It is the first stage of any multi-stage water treatment system designed for recycling or purifying to drinking water.
