Oil recovery IN OUR TRD (Treatment, recovery and disposal) PROCESS
To recover saleable oil from energy exploration and development activities in our TRD process, Tervita utilizes centrifuge technology to assist in the process. Centrifugation significantly enhances the recovery of hydrocarbons from the petroleum waste byproducts we receive from various generators.
Once the fluids and solids are separated from the waste byproduct, then further processing to separate the oil from water occurs to meet the shipping specification of the oil. To complete the process, the separated solids and water are disposed of in applicable, environmentally sound methods and the oil is shipped to market to capture its value via pipelines connected to our facilities or via truck to a pipeline-connected facility.
Tervita's Energy Marketing group maximizes the value of this oil to market through various methods. This is achieved through a combination of strategically located network of facilities close to customer's activity levels, optimizing the density and quality of the blended oil streams and minimizing transportation costs to achieve the best possible netback to our customers.
