Agriculture and Water; How New Concepts In Agriculture from Aquamer (OTCBB: AQUM) (DBA/ Urban Agricultural Corp.) offer Water Solutions

"Agriculture is the largest consumer of freshwater by far - about 70% of all freshwater withdrawals go to irrigated agriculture"- WorldWaterWeek.org





August 27, 2010 www.Water-Stocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the water sector within www.Investorideas.com, reports on the relationship of water and agriculture and how new concepts in urban agriculture can improve efficiencies. With agriculture as the current leading consumer of freshwater, new approaches to agriculture from companies like Aquamer Medical Corp. (OTCBB: AQUM) (DBA/ Urban Agricultural Corp.)offer better water use solutions.



Environmental and Water Benefits



Cleaner Water

The Urban Agricultural system reduces the nutrient pollution associated with chemical fertilizers used on commercial farms. Of the 19% of U.S. rivers and streams assessed by EPA in 2000, roughly 48% (or over 125,000 miles) showed impaired water quality as the result of pollution from agricultural runoff (fertilizers, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). This impact is more than double that of any other source of water pollution.



Water Conservation

Hydroponics production uses three to four times less water per unit of production than field-agriculture. Urban Agricultural's closed-loop irrigation systems lead to even greater water savings.



Minimal Wastewater

The watering injection system recycles water and generates little or no wastewater. Wastewater is one of the most significant environmental costs associated with traditional methods of hydroponics.

Water Statistics from WorldWaterWeek.org

Food, Agriculture

oAgriculture is the largest consumer of freshwater by far - about 70% of all freshwater withdrawals go to irrigated agriculture.

oToday, irrigated agriculture covers 275 million hectares - about 20% of cultivated land - and accounts for 40% of global food production.

oo777 million people in developing countries do not have access to sufficient and adequate food.

oFeeding everyone in 2050 - including the undernourished and additional 3 billion people expected - could require 50 % more water than is needed now. [23]

oReducing food wastage by 50% - including post-harvest losses, losses in transport and handling, and losses in the household - might vastly reduce or even negate the need for additional water to grow more food, which will ensure sufficient water is available for food in the future.

oBased on today's water productivity and a projected diet of 3000 kcal/day, an additional 5600 km3/year of water needs to be appropriated by 2050 to eradicate undernutrition and feed an additional 3 billion world inhabitants. This is almost three times as much as the present global consumptive water use in irrigation.

ooAs irrigation systems come under pressure to produce more with less water, there is a danger that unequal rights and entitlements will widen inequalities.

oFor some countries, climate change may lead to an increase in food production, as in North America and Europe, where high gains are projected.]

oFor the 40 poorest countries, with a total population of some 1-3 billion, climate change may lead them to lose on average up to a fifth of their cereal production potential in the 2080s.

oAs many as 40 % of the Sub-Saharan countries could lose a substantial part of their agricultural production due to climate change.

Investorideas.com - Water Stocks; Q&A Interview with Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX); Offering Water and Wastewater Solutions for Municipalities, Developers and Small System Owners


Visit this company: www.middlesexwater.com

August 27, 2010 www.Water-Stocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the water sector within Investorideas.com, presents an interview with Mr. Dennis W. Doll , Chairman, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX), a provider of water, wastewater and related services, primarily in New Jersey and Delaware. Organized in 1897, the Company provides regulated and unregulated water and wastewater utility services through various subsidiary companies.



Water-Stocks.com Interview with Mr. Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO ofMiddlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX)

Q- Dawn Van Zant at Water-stocks.com
Dennis, in today's environment of climate change, rising population, outdated infrastructure, water efficiencies are more important than ever. How does Middlesex Water address its client needs for water and wastewater efficiency, cost reductions and still meet the required service demands?

A- Mr. Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX)
Today's water and wastewater challenges more than ever require sound technical and financial solutions to meet the increasing national problem of aging infrastructure while maintaiing quality service. Our company has the team, the tools and the talent to address any number of service needs. Across the country, these challenges grow more real every day, and as our reputation as a leading provider continues to expand beyond our existing service areas, we are seeing greater opportunity to help current and prospective clients find greater operational efficiencies, greater transparency about the operations and finances of their systems and assist with improvements to enhance service to customers.

Educating customers about the wise use of water and the importance of detecting household leaks is paramount in our business because it not only helps our customers to better control costs, but also helps to preserve a precious resource for future generations. As an EPA Water Sense partner, we are committed to promoting efficiency in water consumption and do so through the availability of WaterSense labeled products through our website. Equally important is our ongoing commitment to prudently investing in our water mains, treatment plants and other facilities so that capacity is in place to accommodate desired growth, and infrastructure can support current and future customer demands for reliable and affordable water and wastewater service.

Our unique suite of services enables us to address issues of capacity, outdated infrastructure and operational inefficiencies on both the water and the wastewater side. An excellent case study is our partnership with the Town of Milton, DE. Upon acquiring the Town's wastewater treatment plant and related facilities in 2007 through our subsidiary, Tidewater Environmental Services, Inc., it was assumed we would need to decommission the 47 year-old plant relatively soon and construct a new plant to meet capacity, infrastructure and related service challenges existing at that time. After implementing various aspects of our asset management program, we determined that by investing approximately $700,000 in the plant we could meet the capacity and other service needs for a significantly longer period of time than originally anticipated. This approach has resulted in maintaining the high quality of service our customers expect, extending the life of the existing plant and providing room for a reasonable level of growth, all in a cost-effective manner. We were honored to have the Governor of Delaware tour this facility in August 2010, where he acknowledged our company's operational excellence and credited our partnership with the Town of Milton for helping protect the environment and the residents' quality of life all while contributing to economic development in the area. So across all of our companies, we are working to continually enhance our business processes and implement high quality technology that drives reductions in costs while improving service. All of these approaches are important factors in our ability to meet increasing customer expectations and to deliver our growth strategy.

Q- Dawn Van Zant at Wate
r-stocks.com
I have read reports that water consumption is expected to increase by 40% by 2025; what kind of opportunities and obstacles does that represent for companies like Middlesex?

A- Mr. Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX)
There are only a limited number of systems managed by investor-owned companies, but entities like us can play a critical role in helping local government meet water and wastewater challenges associated with sufficient supplies. As a company operating since 1897, if there's one thing we've learned it's that the demand for clean, safe drinking water will always be present and in fact, the lack of these supplies in some parts of the world has reached crisis levels. But the availability of ample water supplies to support heightened demand is best addressed with careful engineering planning and analysis decades before. Even where adequate supplies of quality drinking water are available, it also requires diligent management of water transmission and distribution assets to ensure the underground network of pipes, valves, hydrants, etc. can adequately support customer demand. The affordability and availability of more water and energy efficient products may over time affect how customers use water and how much they use -- but water will always be an element that is essential to human life. We need to continue working to educate the public, as well as the public sector, about the roles our company and the rest of the investor-owned utility industry can play in preserving our resources and meeting the present and future service needs.


Q- Dawn Van Zant at Water-stocks.com
Your company currently provides water and wastewater services in New Jersey and Delaware --- from Water Production, Treatment and Distribution to Wastewater Collection and Treatment and Water and Wastewater System Maintenance – what areas within your services represents the biggest growth markets?


A- Mr. Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX)
As municipally owned utilities work to face challenges of shrinking budgets, an aging workforce and ever increasing state and federal regulations, the continued privatization of government-owned facilities is one example of an opportunity for our company. We have experience working with county and local governments in such partnerships and we have an extremely talented workforce that can offer the right technical solutions. A related growth area includes contract operations for those entities that are not prepared to effect an outright sale of assets, yet need additional professional expertise to provide the operations know-how. The pace of our growth from acquisitions, privatizations, new residential and commercial construction and other complementary products and services is largely dependent on several key factors. Our national and local economies, the specific service and infrastructure needs of local communities, ever-improving technology and environmentally-sensitive approaches are all factors in some form in our growth profile.


Q- Dawn Van Zant at Water-stocks.com
The company just reported revenue for the quarter rose from $23.1 million to $26.5 million on higher demand; do you see this trend continuing moving forward?


A- Mr. Dennis W. Doll, Chairman, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX)
Given the seasonal nature of our business, weather is a significant driver of customer demand. We expect that demand, as well as the many growth opportunities we are exploring, will serve as key drivers of revenue growth moving forward.

Wringing oil from water is in the mixWescorp Energy touts technology's offshore potentialBy Dave Cooper, Edmonton Journal August 25, 2010 9:03 AM
Excerpt
EDMONTON - "I just tell them to bring it on, bring me whatever you have," says Joel Duhaime as he awaits another tanker truck load of oily waste to put through Wescorp Energy's novel water separator being field-tested near New Sarepta.
"We are really challenging this technology to see what it can do in a day-to-day operation. We are taking loads that range in temperature from 30C to 70C with up to 40 per cent oil," the technologist said.
In Wescorp's system called H20maxx, tiny bubbles of nitrogen gas -- ranging from one micron down to a microscopic-nano-size -- lift oil droplets to the surface of a holding tank that can then be skimmed off.

Water Stocks; Investing In Water –Why it has never been more Imperative

Water Stocks; Investing In Water –Why it has never been more Imperative

“ In 2030, 47% of world population will be living in areas of high water stress”


August 19, 2010 www.Water-Stocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the water sector within Investorideas.com, reports on recent news and developments in the water sector. Additionally worldwaterweek.org reports, prior to this years upcoming conference in September, on global water stats, evidencing why investing in the sector has never been more imperative.

Water Statistics from WorldWaterWeek.org
Water Resources and Scarcity

•Of all water on earth, 97 % is salt water, and of the remaining 3 % fresh water, some 70% is frozen in the polar icecaps. The other 30% is mostly present as soil moisture or lies in underground aquifers.

•Less than 1% of the world's fresh water is readily accessible for direct human uses.

•Global water use: Agriculture 70 %, Industry 22 %, Domestic use 8 %.

•A child born in the developed world consumes 30 to 50 times as much water as one in the developing world.

•With rapid population growth, water withdrawals have tripled over the last 50 years.

•An estimated 90% of the 3 billion people who are expected to be added to the population by 2050 will be in developing countries, many in regions already in water stress where the current population does not have sustainable access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation.

•The 10 largest water users (in volume) are India, China, the United States, Pakistan, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mexico and the Russian Federation.

•The world’s water crisis is not related to the physical availability of water, but to unbalanced power relations, poverty and related inequalities.

•Water scarcity can roughly be divided into two categories: “Apparent” scarcity exists when there is plenty of water, but is inefficiently and wastefully used; “real” scarcity is caused by insuffient rain-fall or large populations depending on a limited resource.

•About 1.4 billion people, mostly impoverished, live in river basins where all the blue water is already committed or overcommitted.

•Around 20% of total water used globally is from groundwater sources (renewable or not), and this share is rising rapidly, particularly in dry areas.

•Water withdrawals are predicted to increase by 50 percent by 2025 in developing countries, and 18 per cent in developed countries.

•In 2030, 47% of world population will be living in areas of high water stress.

•By 2075, the number of people in regions with chronic water shortage is estimated to be between 3 and 7 billion.

•By 2030 the number of urban dwellers is expected to be about 1.8 billion more than in 2005 and to constitute about 60% of the world’s population. As the urban population increases, many major cities have had to draw freshwater from increasingly distant watersheds, as local surface and groundwater sources no longer meet the demand for water, or as they become depleted or polluted.

•A nation’s water foot print is defined as the total volume of freshwater, both green and blue, that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the people of the nation, i.e. both food and other goods and services.

Water Stocks; Cancen Provides Update on Wescorp’s (OTCBB: WSCE) H20maxx Technology at Its New Sarepta Disposal Facility

Water Stocks; Cancen Provides Update on Wescorp’s (OTCBB: WSCE) H20maxx Technology at Its New Sarepta Disposal Facility
Edmonton, Alberta August 19, 2010 -( Investorideas.com energy newswire) Cancen Oil Canada Corporation, an oil waste management and processing company, is pleased to provide an update on the use of new technology at its New Sarepta facility. In May, Cancen and Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE) installed the first commercial H2Omaxx oil and water separation unit at Cancen’s New Sarepta disposal well. That unit has been integrated into the disposal facility and is fully functional.

Cancen and Wescorp are close to completing the first 30-days of continuous commercial operation of the unit which will provide data defining the upper limits of H2Omaxx’s capability and applications. Once completed, Wescorp and Cancen will use the third party verified data to expand oil waste market opportunities. This new data will also be presented to various government agencies within Western Canada. Cancen and Wescorp will then strategize about how to best expand Cancen’s business into new markets within the oil sands.



Keith Talbot, President and CEO of Cancen, states, “We are very pleased with the preliminary results from the unit’s operation. H2Omaxx has been effectively processing a wide variety of waste streams from the Alberta oil sands, which are considered to be some of the dirtiest and most difficult water to clean in the oil industry. H20maxx is successfully cleaning produced water - which contained in excess of 25% oil and 10% solids and also contained asphaltines and grease - to new, higher levels once thought unattainable with conventional methods. With these excellent test results in hand, Cancen will begin to set new standards as an industry leader in the clean up and disposal of third party waste.



“The H20maxx will benefit the New Sarepta facility in that it reduces maintenance costs associated with well workover, spent filters and tank cleaning activities while increasing revenue through the sale of recovered oil. As well, these operations will allow Cancen to collect water and waste material from a variety of producers in the area and greatly increase revenue by attracting new customers. I have yet to see a single technology that can operate in such a wide range of applications, the H2Omaxx is demonstrating the ability to clean waste that normally would require multiple technologies,” continued Talbot.



“An emerging player in a multibillion dollar industry, Cancen is positioning itself to become an industry leader and Wescorp is pleased to be able to share a role in that growth by providing our technologically advanced equipment,” said Douglas E. Biles, President and CEO of Wescorp. “Working with Cancen is allowing Wescorp to gather important data from continuous commercial use of H2Omaxx over a 30-day period.”



Cancen is working with the assistance of Wescorp to obtain a number of ECRB Regulatory Approvals for various sites located within Western Canada. As these approvals are received, Cancen expects to deploy additional H2Omaxx units at its locations throughout Western Canada.



Wescorp has designed the H2Omaxx technology unit in a variety of sizes, including a mobile unit and commercial units (2,500, 10,000 and 65,000 barrels-per-day). The expanded range of units will give Cancen the ability to treat varied volumes of waste, more efficiently than any of its competitors.



About Wescorp Wescorp Energy Inc. (www.wescorpenergy.com) is a clean water technology company focused on implementing its superior yet low-cost solutions into the oil and gas production industry.



About Cancen Cancen Oil Canada Corp. (www.cancenoil.com) operates a number of waste processing facilities in western Canada.

Toronto - August 17, 2010 (Investorideas.com water stocks newswire, www.water-stocks.com) - The United Nations estimates that more than half of the world's population will experience severe shortages of fresh water by 2025. In light of these fresh water forecasts and challenges, several Ryerson University researchers worked together to develop a financial evaluation process to identify which water-sector companies are likely to stay afloat and which ones are likely to sink in a worldwide financial crisis.

"The supply and distribution of water is vital everywhere. As a result it's important to identify in advance which water companies might experience financial trouble so that governments and industry can hopefully help salvage them in time" said Lyubomir Halachev, a recent graduate of the Ted Rogers School of Business Management and winner of the prize for best student paper at the International Congress on Environmental Modeling and Software in Ottawa, which beat out submissions by master's and PhD-level candidates.
Halachev based his research on the "triple bottom line" premise: companies should focus on people and the planet, as well as profits. The idea implies that changes in a company's economic viability may also affect social and environmental stability in the region where the company operates.
Halachev analyzed 140 publicly listed companies around the world. His goal was to determine which companies were likely to remain active in the sector and which ones were likely to "die" out (i.e. be delisted from the stock exchange). The study included a broad range of companies in the water industry including, water-treatment, distribution and bottling, as well as those that operate in, or offer services to, the water industry such as information technology, engineering solutions, financing, and piping and irrigation equipment.
The research was conducted in three stages: first, Halachev used stock market databases to identify the companies and collect their stock data over the past 25 years. His co-author Yashodhan Athavale, an electrical and computer engineering graduate student from Ryerson's Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science, expanded upon a set of mathematical approaches initially developed at Ryerson's Research Lab for Advanced System Modelling, and then wrote a computer program to apply them. When Halachev applied these approaches to the stock market data from the water sector and used them to further classify the companies, the resulting information showed a definite visual and quantifiable distinction between the active companies and those likely to "die."
Professor Aziz Guergachi, founding director of the advanced system modelling lab at the Ted Rogers School of Information Technology Management, and Halachev's co-author and supervisor said the results of this research illustrate the importance of conducting interdisciplinary research.
"The solutions to modern-day problems lie at the intersection of disciplines, not in single disciplines. It's similar to a soccer game. Defensive and offensive players pass the ball to each other and when the best moment comes, one of those players will score. So, it is hard to state the role of individual players in scoring the goal."
Given the importance and potential scarcity of fresh water, it is essential for governments to be able to identify water-sector companies that are on the brink of financial trouble while they can still be salvaged. Through the interdisciplinary work and collaborative efforts of Halachev and his co-authors, their predictive model can provide much needed insight into the increasingly important, yet vulnerable water sector.
Halachev's co-authors were graduate student Yashodhan Athavale, their supervisor Professor Guergachi and co-supervisor Sri Krishnan, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Ryerson's Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science and a Canada Research Chair in Biomedical Signal Analysis.
Ryerson University is Canada's leader in innovative, career-oriented education and a university clearly on the move. With a mission to serve societal need, and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community, Ryerson offers close to 100 undergraduate and graduate programs. Distinctly urban, culturally diverse and inclusive, the university is home to 28,000 students, including 2,000 master's and PhD students, nearly 2,700 tenured and tenure-track faculty and staff, and more than 130,000 alumni worldwide.

Wescorp Energy Inc (OTCBB: WSCE) H20maxx Remediation Technology for Deployment in Gulf Clean Up



August 13, 2010 (Investorideas.com water stocks newswire) Investorideas.com and its water investor portal, www.water-stocks.com announce CFA commentary on Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE), a clean water solutions company. Lisa Springer, CFA, is an equity research analyst and financial writer.

Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE Preps H20maxx Remediation Technology For Deployment in Gulf Spill Clean Up



Lisa Springer, CFA
Equity research analyst and financial writer
By any measure, the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill is an environmental disaster of epic proportions. Experts estimate between 86 million and 168 million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion of this deepwater drilling rig on April 20th. BP initially pegged the leak at around 1,000 barrels (42,000 gallons) of oil per day, but later revised these numbers upward dramatically. According to the Boston Globe, current estimates are that more than one million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf each day, Oil has washed up on the shores of all five Gulf States, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Texas. BP has set aside $20 billion in a clean up fund and contracted with thousands of vessels and over 20,000 workers to handle the cleanup effort.



Despite this massive response, recovery efforts have only been minimally successful. BP reported in early July that 26.5 million barrels of oil have been recovered, but this represents less than one-third of the total spill. New technologies and equipment are urgently needed to accelerate the pace of the clean up and recovery.

Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE), a clean water solutions company, owns a proprietary oil/seawater separation technology called H20Maxx and is ready to deploy in the Gulf clean up. This technology has been proven effective, economic and friendly to the environment. H20maxx uses a nano/micro-bubble aeration process to separate oil from seawater to less than 29 parts per million, exceeding EPA standards. No chemicals are used in the process, which is environmentally friendly. H20maxx can process large volumes of oil contaminated seawater rapidly and would allow the cleaned seawater to be immediately discharged back into the sea. The equipment is compact, highly portable and not motion sensitive so H20maxx units can be operated effectively from the moving deck of a ship or offshore production platform.

H20maxx uses a nano/micro-bubble aeration process to separate oil from seawater to less than 29 parts per million, exceeding EPA standards.

H20maxx can process large volumes of oil contaminated seawater rapidly and would allow the cleaned seawater to be immediately discharged back into the sea. The equipment is compact, highly portable and not motion sensitive so H20maxx units can be operated effectively from the moving deck of a ship or offshore production platform.

H20maxx Is Already Deployed in Canadian Oilfields

Many of the technologies proposed for the Gulf clean up are untested, but this is not the case with H20maxx, which has already proven its value in Western Canadian oilfields. Cancen Oil Canada Corporation, a leading provider of oilfield waste management services, has been using an H20maxx unit to process oilfield waste streams collected from various producers since mid-May. The unit is capable of processing 2,000 barrels of oilfield waste water per day.



Cancen, Wescorp’s partner for commercializing H20maxx technology, plans to deploy additional remediation units at its processing facilities as it expands its footprint. The joint venture partners also plan to build and deploy mobile units to provide on-site remediation for Cancen clients.

New Large Capacity Remediation Unit Planned

Wescorp is in active discussions with contractors and government agencies involved in the Gulf clean-up to identify the right opportunity for H20maxx technology. In response to their feedback, the Company began constructing a new, larger capacity water remediation unit capable of processing up to 10,000 barrels of contaminated water per day. Wescorp expects to take delivery of the larger unit in September, which may be deployed in the Gulf region for on-site demonstration and testing.



The large capacity unit is highly mobile and can be moved from site to site for technology demonstrations and deployment in short-term commercial operations. It comes equipped with its own storage, separation and containment tanks and micro-aeration generators and is fully automated, thus requiring minimal human supervision. In addition, Wescorp has designed a large, skid-mounted H20maxx unit capable of processing up to 65,000 barrels (2.8 million gallons) of contaminated seawater per day. This unit has been designed to operate on land or on sea and will be marketed to marine and emergency response customers.

Technology Treats Oilfield “Produced” Water

Wescorp originally developed H20maxx technology for oilfield applications in the remediation of “produced” water, which is contaminated water left over from drilling operations. This water is tainted with hydrocarbons, sand, drill cuttings and salt and must be cleaned of residual oil and other pollutants. Oil and gas companies dispose of approximately 250 million barrels of produced water each day and pay as much as $12 per barrel for its treatment and disposal. H20maxx removes more hydrocarbons than other treatment methods, which can leave behind as much as 5,000 to 30,000 parts per million of hydrocarbons. In comparison, H20maxx reduces hydrocarbon content of treated water to less than ten parts per million. By using H20Maxx, oil companies can reduce their disposal costs since the treated water is cleaner. In addition, they can recover and sell higher quantities of residual oil. Another benefit of H20maxx technology is that oil companies are able to recycle treated water in their drilling operations, thus reducing fresh water consumption.

CALGARY, ALBERTA - August 11, 2010 (Investorideas.com Water Stocks Newswire) - Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTC.BB:WSCE), a clean water technology company focused on implementing its low-cost solutions into several markets including the oil & gas and marine industries, today further defined its strategy to enter the market to provide services for the oil spill recovery efforts in the Gulf of Mexico. Management is in active discussions with contractors and government agencies involved in the Gulf clean-up efforts to attempt to obtain the right opportunity for Wescorp to introduce its H2Omaxx water remediation technology in support of the oil spill recovery efforts.



"Our goal is to locate a right opportunity for Wescorp's H2Omaxx technology to be deployed in a marine environment in order to demonstrate its unusually cost effective and efficient oil/water separation," states Robert G. Power, Executive Chairman of Wescorp. "We made a conscious decision to not jump into this new area until we clearly understood the issues and challenges related to the Gulf spill and clean up efforts. As a result, Wescorp has been actively examining and receiving feedback about the actual technology challenges and opportunities for on- and off-shore oil/water separation.


"In September, we expect to achieve two important milestones. We anticipate receiving the independent test data from the ongoing commercial H2Omaxx operation from the New Sarepta, Alberta site. That same month, we also look forward to taking delivery of our first larger capacity 10,000 barrel-a-day treatment unit. At that point, we believe Wescorp will be well positioned to deploy a land-based H2Omaxx unit for use in the Gulf of Mexico clean-up.


"It is important to recognize that the clean-up will go on for many months, and possibly years. We want to ensure that our technology works properly for the specific Gulf circumstances, and we have the confidence that H2Omaxx will then prove itself in the field. Few of the new technologies that have been deployed to date in the initial clean-up operations have achieved any new efficiencies. Our objective is to set new performance standards," Power said.


Richard Dalati, VP Gulf of Mexico and International Business, added, "Wescorp has been actively pursuing opportunities for both on-shore and off-shore oil spill recovery applications in the Gulf of Mexico. At the same time, we are also pursuing opportunities related to off-shore production water remediation applications. H2Omaxx technology is economically competitive and environmentally benign, as it does not use any chemicals. Operationally, the unit is simple to use, and can quickly and efficiently process high volumes of contaminated water.


"Looking ahead, we believe, as do other leaders in the industry, that the off-shore oil and gas industry will come under much stricter regulatory requirements for oil/water separation and for emergency response to oil spills. Our H2Omaxx technology provides a unique solution for both of these regulatory objectives. We expect Wescorp to play an active role and be part of the discussion going forward in terms of the technologies and standards that will likely be adopted to meet the new regulatory requirements.
"Equally important," Dalati continued, "Wescorp has now designed a unit to operate in a variety of marine environments - at sea, on a drilling rig, or on a ship. There is presently no technology that operates in a large sea swell (heave) environment under a wide variety of conditions. We expect testing will prove that H2Omaxx will operate effectively at sea, and the technology will be in demand by the marine industry because of its low cost, small footprint and light weight specifications," concluded Dalati.


H2Omaxx Technology
H2Omaxx has been proven to be a safe, effective, economical and environmentally friendly process for cleaning and separating oil and solids from water. Using Wescorp's nano-aeration technology, independent test results have shown the H2Omaxx technology to reduce the oil content in produced water to less than 10 parts per million without the use of chemicals, filters or heat.
Use of H2Omaxx provides important cost benefits to the operator when compared with the traditional multi-technology approach to remediate water. H2Omaxx can lower both the operator's capital costs and operating costs significantly. In addition, new revenues are created by the capture of barrels of oil that would otherwise be disposed.
Land-Based or Sea-Based Solution


H2Omaxx technology has been designed to produce the H2Omaxx unit in a variety of sizes, including a mobile unit and commercial units (2,500, 10,000 and 65,000 barrels-per-day). H2Omaxx solutions address a wide range of oil/water separation needs:
On-Shore Production Operations
The highly mobile H2Omaxx unit can be rapidly transported to facilities for short- or long-term commercial operations. The 10,000 barrel-per-day unit has its own storage, separation and containment tanks, micro-aeration generators and firmware and computer automation technology to allow water remediation with minimal human supervision. Wescorp expects to take delivery of its first manufactured 10,000 barrel-per-day unit in September.


Large Volume/Sea Water Emergency Response
A large volume skid-mounted unit has been designed to clean up to 65,000 barrels or 2.8 million gallons of oily seawater per day. Multiple units could be coupled together to meet the demands required in the Gulf disaster. The H2Omaxx oil/seawater separation technology is designed to remediate oily water to a standard to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's limits of 29 parts per million (ppm) monthly average – 42 ppm maximum daily "oil and grease" content. This unit has been designed to operate either on land or on the sea. Wescorp will market a large scale emergency response unit as part of its ongoing marketing efforts to marine and emergency response customers. Wescorp will seek to secure a customer for this type of unit before commissioning its construction.


Off-Shore Oil & Gas Production
Wescorp believes that a compact skid-mounted unit can be used to remediate produced water from an off-shore production platform to a level that should allow it to be discharged overboard. The unit would provide a smaller footprint (less weight, less size and less energy requirements) than the multiple pieces of equipment traditionally used for offshore platforms. Wescorp also intends to market a compact skid-mounted unit as part of its ongoing sales efforts.


Key operating advantages for the off-shore industry are expected to include:
High Throughput / Low Retention: The low retention time required by H2Omaxx technology will greatly reduce the weight of water in process relative to the throughput.
Wide Input Tolerances: Many other technologies only perform at peak levels within a narrow range of input flow rates and/or the percentage of hydrocarbons in the input solution. These operationally sensitive technologies require preconditioning or waste storage containers to manage the input specifications. This operation of the H2Omaxx unit will not require preconditioning and storage, thus decreasing overall treatment system cost, weight and space requirements.
Because of these traditional technology challenges, many production platforms choose instead to ship produced water to on-shore processing facilities, thereby significantly increasing costs and environmental operating risks. These costs and risks will be mitigated with the use of H2Omaxx.
