Transcript

  • 1. Exhibit 16 Suncor Pond One Testing Suncor’s Pond One Sample mature fine tailings (MFT) to be tested with Petromax for the purpose of achieving three phase separation. Petromax Technologies, LLC Randy Brawn 200 ml MFT sample Weight = 284.9 grams
  • 2. Petromax was added (400 ml) to the MFT (200 ml) for a total of 600 ml to be processed. 400 ml of Petromax 1 Weight = 416.4 grams MFT combined with Petromax was sheared for 60 seconds within the glass jar pictured 2 on the left. This picture shows oil water solids separation viewed after 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of settling 3 time all three phases were extracted and quantified.
  • 3. Top View of “oily froth” after Petromax process. This picture was taken after 15 minutes of settling time as the oily froth gathered at the top of the jar above the “spent Petromax”.
  • 4. Top view of extracted oily froth Side view of extracted oily froth
  • 5. Oily froth weighed 38.9 grams less 6 grams of paper weight or 32.9 grams Spent / extracted Petromax plus recovered water from original MFT
  • 6. Remaining wet clay at bottom of glass jar prior to extraction
  • 7. Extracting wet clay
  • 8. Wet clay extraction continued
  • 9. Wet clay extraction complete
  • 10. Extracted wet clay side view
  • 11. Wet clay extraction top view
  • 12. The wet clay weighed 104.1 less 6 Spent gram paper or 98.1 grams. Petromax Assuming 12% water, as in plus previous tests, the dry clay would recovered weigh 86.33 grams. water from original MFT sample Recovered oily froth
  • 13. Original MFT Sample = 284.9 grams Recovered Wet Clay = 98.1 grams Recovered Oily Froth = 32.9 grams Visual Comparison
  • 14. Recovered MFT water and Petromax = 582.07 grams and is just over 500 ml. The extracted spent water/Petromax solution still contains clay as it will continue to settle at the bottom. This recovered water has been settling for ½ hour after extraction.
  • 15. The extracted water/Petromax spent solution has continued to settle for 5 hours. The clay is accumulating at the bottom of the jar with a small amount of light oil at the top This fine clay at the bottom appears to be very clean.
  • 16. The extracted water/Petromax solution continues to settle clay. This picture shows the clay level 21 hours from the time of extraction. The level appears to be at least half of that which was originally extracted when compared to slide number 2
  • 17. Petromax Technologies, LLC Suncor Pond One Testing 501 S. Isis Ave., Inglewood, CA 90301 Barry Rosengrant, CEO 310.202.6647 Test #1 (after first extraction at 15 minutes duration) BRosengrant@gmail.com Petromax MFT Formula 2:1 ratio by volume Original sample 284.9 g (200 ml.) Petromax 416.4 g (400 ml.) Recovered bitumen froth 32.9 g Percent of bitumen froth recovered from original 11.55 % MFT sample Recovered wet clay layer 98.1 g (water + clay/silt) (11.77g + 86.33g) * See second extraction results on slide 26 Percent of dry clay recovered from original MFT 30.30 % sample (extrapolated figure from previous test) * See second extraction results on slide 26 Recovered Petromax and MFT water 582.07 g Recovered water from MFT 165.67 g (58.15 %)
  • 18. Observations • The Pond One MFT contains a higher percentage of clay than previously tested Syncrude tailings. • A visual inspection of the extracted spent Petromax solution indicates a significant amount of clay continues to settle out of solution over a period of 5 hours. • The extracted oily froth (11.55 %) appears to contain very little bitumen oil, but rather a combination of air bubbles, water, and oil. • The water/Petromax spent solution appears to contain a significant amount of bitumen oil and is gradually rising to the top. It appears to be a very light oil.
  • 19. Light bitumen oil The extracted continues to rise to the top water/Petromax solution appears to have stopped settling clay. This picture shows the clay level 30 hours from the time of extraction. The following slides show the clay being extracted and quantified. The spent Petromax solution and recovered water is poured into another jar. Clay Level
  • 20. After the spent Petromax has been poured out you can see some of the oil remains on the interior glass. In addition, oil appears to have saturated the top portion of the clay.
  • 21. After scraping the top layer, you can see cleaner clay below the surface.
  • 22. Continuing Clay Removal This clay, after 30 hours, appears to be very dry when compared to the clay which was removed after 15 minutes of settling time. The clay is very dense and stiff. The clay is tightly bonded to the bottom of the jar.
  • 23. Clay Removal Complete
  • 24. Surface clay was covered with a dark bitumen Top View of Extracted Clay
  • 25. Side View of Extracted Clay The clay is very dense/stiff and can be easily sculpted.
  • 26. The extracted wet clay weighed 55 grams less 6 grams paper or 49 grams. Assuming 12% water, as in previous tests, the dry clay would weigh 43.12 grams. The spent Petromax and clay have been removed from the jar. The total dry clay ( 86.33 + 43.12 = 129.45 grams ) now accounts for 45.44% of the original MFT
  • 27. Final Remaining Spent Petromax and Recovered Water A very light bitumen oil continues to rise to the top of the Petromax solution After 12 hours from the second clay extraction very little clay has settled to the bottom of the spent Petromax solution and recovered water.
  • 28. Final Remaining Spent Petromax and Recovered Water It appears more bitumen has risen to the top of the jar. After 84 hours from the second clay extraction, clay has continued to settle at the bottom of the spent Petromax solution and recovered water.
