Questor Technology Inc. Announces $5.8 MM Clean Combustion to Power Project Award

CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Questor Technology Inc. (“Questor” or the “Company”) (QST.V) is pleased to announce that it has received a Purchase Order to supply our clean combustion incineration technology with our power generation equipment at three oil and gas production facilities in Mexico comprising a total project award amount of $5.8 million. Questor is pleased to showcase its technologies to eliminate gas flaring and methane for a significant asset owner within the oil and gas sector in Mexico.

In Mexico, on November 6, 2018, the general provisions that establish the prevention and comprehensive control of methane emissions from the oil and gas industry were published.

These new rules are applicable to both new and existing installations for the projects in which the following activities are carried out:

  • The exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons;
  • The treatment, refining and storage of oil, and
  • The processing, compression, liquefaction, decompression and regasification, as well as transportation by pipeline, storage and distribution of natural gas.                              

Ultimately Mexico has targeted methane reduction as part of its environmental objectives to reduce emissions by up to 75% by 2025.

Our client has recognized the benefits of Questor’s high performance incineration system, destroying in excess of 99.99% of methane, volatile organic compounds and other hazardous pollutants.  Operators who do not comply with new, strict emissions regulations will be subject to fines and are at risk to have oil production shut in.  Questor’s emissions control technology will ensure operating compliance under the new targets.  In addition, Questor will utilize the thermal energy in the combusted waste gases to generate power that will be utilized at the oil and gas facilities.  Mexico’s environmental regulations also reward companies who are able to harness benefits from associated gas such as the generation of power.

Questor acquired ClearPower Systems (CPS) on January 31, 2014 and will collaborate closely with CPS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Questor Technology, to integrate three organic rankine cycle (ORC) power generation systems with three (3) of Questor’s clean combustion incinerators.  With Mexico’s environmental regulations and aggressive emissions targets, Questor anticipates significant interest in its unique and efficient solutions to reduce methane and eliminate harmful emissions.

“Questor is pleased to be chosen as part of the solution in assisting Mexico to achieve their emission reduction goals, another example that our effective and cost-saving solutions transcend borders”, commented Ms. Audrey Mascarenhas, Questor’s President and CEO.  “From the provision of our proprietary, high-performance combustion technology to the use of the resulting excess heat to generate electricity, it is appropriate that we are showcasing our innovations where there is commitment to protecting the environment and improving air quality. This solution has applicability globally where over 14 billion standard cubic feet of gas is flared and vented daily.”
