Increasing the Value of Heavy Crude Oil
This presentation contains forward-looking information that involves various risks and uncertainties regarding future events. Such forward-looking information includes, without limitation, statements based on current expectations which are based on assumptions and subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and are not guarantees of future performance of the Corporation. These risks and uncertainties could cause actual results and the Corporation’s plans and objectives to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking information. Most notably these risks and assumptions include, but are not limited to: successful removal/recovery of minerals, bitumen and solvent; Upgrading of Heavy Crude oil, changes in worldwide commodity prices; fluctuation in exchange rates; development and commercialization plans; legislative, political or economic developments including changes to relevant legislation in Canada or other jurisdictions; operating or technical difficulties in connection with development activities; requirement for additional funding; development timelines; potential values of crude oil upgrading, recovered minerals, bitumen and solvent; expected future oil sands production & bitumen losses; and prospective results of operations, financial position or cash flows that are based on assumptions about future economic conditions and courses of action. These and all subsequent written and oral forward-looking information are based on reasonable estimates, opinions and assumptions of management on the dates they are made and are expressly qualified in their entirety by this notice. Except as required by securities law, the Corporation assumes no obligation to update forward-looking information should circumstances or management’s estimates or opinions change.
Light crude: easy to refine, but expensive Brent Crude = $110/barrel Heavy crude: cheaper to buy, but expensive to refine CapEx for state-of-the-art refinery > $2.5 Billion USD Heavy crude: expensive to pump Does not flow easily due to high viscosity requires expensive diluent (naphtha) $4-8/barrel* in pipeline transportation costs *cost will vary according to geography and may exceed $10/barrel
Hydrodynamic cavitation, extreme shear and vorticity The process allows for efficient transfer of mechanical energy applied to crude oil, or other feed stock, in order to release the internal energy of molecular bonds As a result, molecular bonds in hydrocarbon chains break, this process is known as “Cracking”
Delayed coking Deep conversion (70-80%) CapEx ~ 2.5 Billion Huge environmental impact 20+ years ROI Hydrodynamic processing Low conversion (2-15%) CapEx ~ Million for approx. 75,000 Barrels/Day Beneficial environmental impact Fast ROI Conventional Technology Quantum Vortex Technology
Increase heavy crude oil quality and value Increase API 5-20% Additional value: $$$ per barrel Reduce viscosity: up to 70%** Additional value: $6-$10/barrel* due to reduced diluent needs Employ portable unit or integrate with an existing tank farm *value added shall vary according to feed stock and geographical conditions. **viscosity reductions based upon laboratory results and may vary in field.
Reduce viscosity up to 70%*, resulting in reduced diluent cost Lower transportation costs, boost volume in pipeline capacity Increase API resulting in higher crude value *value added shall vary according to feed stock and geographical conditions. Pre-treat crude prior to transportation or integrate with pipeline infrastructure Increase pipeline capacities without expanding infrastructure
