Tampico, Mexico – Crude Oil Treatment 2018-06-12T14:52:08+00:00

Project Description

IONTEK was approached by in 2017 a PEMEX contractor, who needed to clean valuable hydrocarbon deposits in the state of Tampico, Mexico. These heavy hydrocarbons have been contained in man-made lagoons, where they have remained several years. Working with this contractor, IONTEK designed and tested a process plant to remove the extra-heavy sediments and to turn them into valuable commercial-grade crude oil. Work is expected to start in the second half of 2018, pending crude export permits.
