News about OriginOil, Inc.
New York, NY - May 9, 2012 – Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks and energy stocks issues a news and trading alert for OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB: OOIL), trading up at $1.74 0.32(22.54%) 2:25PM EDT, following news of entering the frac water and produced water treatment market.
OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB: OOIL), developer of a breakthrough technology to convert algae into renewable crude oil, announced today that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with California-based PACE to collaborate with oil field operators in Texas and elsewhere to improve petroleum recovery and water cleaning for re-use at well sites, using a process it originally developed for algae harvesting.
"The performance we’ve seen from OriginOil’s technology is unheard-of in the industry. Removing 98% of organics from a sample of Texas frac flowback water is beyond impressive," said Andrew Komor, vice president for environmental water at PACE. "This is the next step, where we get a chance to see that performance in the field. The OriginOil team has been highly responsive and we expect this to be a successful program."
Subject to definitive agreement, OriginOil plans to provide the equipment and capability to process up to one barrel per minute in continuous flow. Success at this scale would set the stage for a ten-fold increase and beyond.
In keeping with its licensing strategy in algae, oil and gas, and waste removal markets, the memorandum provides that OriginOil may choose to be paid for the equipment and receive a small royalty, or to cover its own costs in return for a larger share of profits.
