IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - March 13, 2015) - Vivakor Inc. (VIVK) released results of third party lab testing of oil extracted from the Vernal, Utah oil sands. The Company disclosed that the independent lab reports revealed that Vivakor's oil extraction technology was able to effectively extract in a clean, environmentally pristine manner quality oil from the oil sand. Vivakor also disclosed that they have validated, through these labs, the high quality composition of the oil they have successfully extracted. The tests show that Vivakor's Oil product has an API (American Petroleum Institute) density level of approximately thirty five (~35 API) which is considered low density for grading crude oil and high quality. The sulfur content, which tested below a half of a percent, (< 0.5%) was very low and deemed a premium oil for refineries. This puts Vivakor oil on par with some of the best in the world.
Vivakor has been preparing to operate in the designated rich oil sands area in Uintah County and this provides Vivakor another major technological advantage in extracting high demand, high quality natural resources from the Utah Oil Sands. The Company has been extensively testing a clean, environmentally responsible and fully scalable operations model utilizing a proprietary oil extraction catalyst that is unique to the industry.
Vivakor's intellectual properties are proprietary and proving industry disruptive with a low cost basis in their operations in the natural resource space. The Company focus is specifically in Precious metals extraction, and now with the oil extraction from the oil rich area of Utah, this provides Vivakor with a substantial capability going forward.
