MOSCOW, RUSSIA / ACCESSWIRE / September 5, 2018 / Bruce Abbott, President of Genoil Inc. (OTC PINK: GNOLF) Announced today that Genoil will begin testing of Pemex Heavy Crude Oil upgrading at our demonstration facility in Russia. Our engineers will activate the catalyst and will set up for the test which will commence on September 10, 2018. Genoil will also prepare for a second test in the near future.
David Lifschultz, Chairman & C.E.O. told investors on a recent conference call, September 10 will be a historic day as we begin a series of GHU feedstock test runs under the guidance of Raushan Telyashev, who was formerly in charge of all R&D at Lukoil Oil Company, the largest Russian oil company by capitalization.
"This new Mexican crude oil GHU tests will build on our existing technology models created from older tests and will provide us with a greater confidence in the range of the operating parameters we are assuming in our existing economic and kinetic models,'' said Bruce Abbott. ''These tests will provide consequential hard data that support our engineers, which will be helpful when we work toward completion of basic engineering designs for commercial facilities. Genoil has already done extensive testing on many crude oil feedstocks.''
The purpose of this feedstock demonstration is to establish the quality of the product for the rollout of GHU project in Mexico. The new president of Mexico has indicated that he will go in a much more progressive direction on energy with a primary goal of producing all refined products necessary for Mexico internally in the country rather than importing it from overseas. This GHU demonstration test will be to support the engineering and design of a large-scale commercial GHU facility currently under evaluation by Genoil, to be constructed in Mexico as well as other target project locations around the world. Genoil has been in discussions with several potential equity investors and EPC companies to finance an upgrading project which with IMO 2020 legislation coming soon is more needed than ever. Currently, Mexico exports no light crude oil and Platts is predicting heavy and sour crude oil feedstocks to fall in value against light oil low sulfur feedstocks.
About The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader:
The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader (GHU®), is an advanced upgrading and desulfurization technology, which converts heavy or sour crude oil into much more valuable light low sulphur oil for a very low cost. The GHU achieves 96% pitch conversion and 95% desulfurization with an operating cost of up to 75% less than the competition. For Conoco Canada Ltd, Genoil converted their bitumen of 6-8.5 API and converted it to 24.5 API. We also removed 92% of the sulphur reducing the amount from 5.14 % to below 0.24%. These results were taken by Conoco Canada Ltd, who had them analysed by Core Laboratories, one of the largest service providers of core and fluid analysis in the petroleum industry.
