Oil Recovery With Panamerican Energy (Argentina) – 2015 2018-06-11T16:43:16+00:00

Project Description

Pan American Energy, a Joint Venture with BP, contracted IONTEK to recover Crude Oil from a Sludge and slop tank, which had not been treated for well over 18 years, in the Santa Cruz Province of southern Argentina. Our installation consisted of a mobile (containerized) unit with a 2-stage cavitation reactor and 2 pumps, plus automatic monitoring and control systems. At the end of 2 weeks, we were able to recover about 60% of the tank’s capacity in recoverable commercial-grade oil.
