Wescorp Energy's H2Omaxx Water Remediation Unit Installed and Operational at Cancen Oil Treatment Facility in Alberta

CALGARY, ALBERTA. Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB:WSCE) announced today that Cancen Oil Canada Corporation, an oilfield waste management and processing company, has received all necessary environmental approvals from the Alberta regulatory boards to operate Wescorp's 2,000 barrel-per-day commercial H2Omaxx water remediation unit in Alberta. The unit was recently transported to Cancen's treatment facility in New Sarepta, Alberta, Canada where it has been commissioned and has begun operations.

Nitrogen testing successfully completed on water remediation unit

Nitrogen testing on Wescorp Energy Inc.’s 2,000 barrel per day commercial water remediation test unit has been successfully completed. Wescorp’s water remediation units use a patented technology that provides safe, effective and economical separation of oil and solids from produced water. The purpose of nitrogen testing is to use only nitrogen gas in the microscopic bubble generator to produce environmentally friendly byproduct gas. The 60-day test has been successful in consistently cleaning produced water at the test site to less than 0.005 percent (50 parts per million) oil. Use of the nitrogen version of Wescorp’s environmentally friendly process can additionally help in obtaining Kyoto carbon tax credits. “The successful results from the nitrogen tests for our patented water reme-diation unit are significant for Wescorp,” commented Mark Norris, chairman of Wescorp Energy and former minister of economic development in the Alberta Provincial Government. “Wescorp is now able to offer to lease these units to conventional oil and gas operators, as well as heavy oil producers, with an added selling feature. By using Wescorp’s solution for water remedia-tion, companies can further reduce their carbon emissions. There are additional emission reductions through a decrease in service and repair work on injection and disposal wells. This can result in significant cost savings and reduction in overall operating costs. When oil and gas operators use our water management solution, the advantages are numerous. Companies can operate in a more environmentally friendly manner, decreasing operating cost and increasing profitability all at the same time. We intend on using nitrogen generators on all future units including those going to Kansas, Wyoming and Texas as part of our large order for up to 256 units.”

LOCATE, TRACK EQUIPMENT

Intelligent Field Resource Management (IFRM) is a radio-frequency identification (RFID)-driven solution for industrial and oil-field equipment that answers the three most important questions those in oil and gas field operations and maintenance (O&M) have about this equipment: What do I have? When did I get it? Where is it? Previously, those in O&M relied on bar codes or other inventory control methods for their heavy industrial material, consumables and equipment. However, none of these methods provided all the information needed – if they worked at all. “Our solution will tell them such things as exactly where that piece of equipment is, what kind of shape it’s in, whether it’s even functioning at any precise moment, if it needs to go back for a rebuild, etc,” said Wescorp COO Scott Shemwell. Wescorp CEO Doug Biles said IFRM’s “secret sauce” is Wescorp’s proprietary NAVIGATOR Process Management Services. “All the information related to the tagged equipment is tied to NAVIGATOR and stored securelyonline where it is available for collaborative initiatives,” Biles said. “This means you can not only find the particular piece of machinery you’re looking for, but at the same time you can get the manual on it, the service record on it-anything about the item you want to know.” Wescorp NAVIGATOR is a suite of process management services that enables Wescorp to reduce costs, save time and optimize field operations for its worldwide oil and gas clients.
