Value-Engineering Program Results in Improved Applied Oil Technology Efficacy and Efficiency

March 2016, Vol. 243, No. 3

QS Energy, Inc., a developer of integrated technology solutions for the energy industry, recently completed a value-engineering program designed to improve the efficacy and efficiency of its AOT™ (Applied Oil Technology) crude oil viscosity reduction hardware. The program began mid-2015 with analysis and testing of selected AOT components to address internal electrical field issues encountered during AOT operations on a commercial pipeline transporting ultra-light crude oil known as condensate. The resulting value-engineered design improves the overall efficiency of electric field generation. Tests performed on the re-engineered AOT unit at Industrial Screen and Maintenance (ISM), one […]
