Recycling Water, Recovering Oil
The oil industry uses tremendous amounts of water. An average of seven barrels of oily waste water comes out of the ground along with the oil. This water is contaminated with solids and emulsified oil. It must be treated or disposed in state certified wells underground.
Industry water requirements have strained water stressed areas of the country like California. Underground disposal of this water is causing earthquakes in Oklahoma in record numbers. The usual ways of acquiring and disposing of oil waste water is becoming a major industry issue and causing state governments to clamp down on operations.
New Technology Remediates the Problems
Nano Gas Technologies has patent pending technology that handles the major issues of oil wastewater in an affordable way. The difference is their ability to create nano-scale bubbles in treatment water. They are so small it literally changes the density of the water and creates gas saturation levels never seen before.
Oil rises to the surface and suspended solids drop to the bottom of wastewater in minutes, not days or weeks through the usual gravity settlement methods.

In most cases, the water remaining is ready to be turned into heavy water and deployed right back into oil production. This recycled water eliminates demand for fresh water supplies and negates the need for underground disposal.
The oil from the water is recovered and sold.
Nano Gas can put an "insane" amount of dissolved gas in a liquid. At 100-200 nanometers in size, Nano Gas' bubbles are so small, they change a physics principal called Henry's Law. That law predicts limitations on the amount of dissolved gas at based upon temperature and pressure. The bubbles are so tiny, they are invisible to the naked eye. Nano Gas does it using far, far less than the predicted energy requirements. Any kind of gas can have huge saturation levels. Sorry Henry.
What does that mean? Dissolved gas readings are "off the charts". How does 48 ppm oxygen in tap water sound at normal atmosphere and temperature? Well to a physicist that sounds like insanity. What's your water problem? Nano Gas can probably address it.
Low Energy, Non-Clogging Mobile Equipment
Nano Gas deploys its solution services through fully equipped mobile treatment plants. Its technology allows for the use of low horse power pumps and clog-free nozzles to supply the supersaturated gaseous water. The treatment systems are tied into existing processing and holding equipment at location.
Low energy, fast treatment, non-clogging and fully mobile – that’s the Nano Gas advantage!
No Capital Expense
Nano Gas operates as a contract servicer. There is no capital equipment to purchase. The service is fully turnkey. Site inspection, installation and ongoing operation is the headache free way to deal with the problem of waste water. When the project is done, the equipment is disconnected and the mobile unit is rolled away.
Generating Revenue from “Waste”
You as the customer retain all the rights to the water. Water is processed at your facility. The project itself generates revenue from the sale of the recycled water and recovered oil. Most agreements are a share on the revenues generated from recycling and recovery over a contracted period of time.
