NetworkNewsBreaks – Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) Reaches New Production Milestone at Asphalt Ridge Facility

March 2, 2020 11:58:03

Petroteq Energy (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF), an integrated oil ‎company focused on the development and implementation of its proprietary oil-‎extraction and remediation technologies, today announced that its ‎Asphalt Ridge facility located in Vernal, Utah, since re-commencement ‎on February 19, 2020, has produced approximately 1,900 barrels of oil thus achieving an average ‎daily production rate of over 300 bbls/day on a continuous basis. This comes after a scheduled ‎temporary maintenance shutdown in January 2020, during which the team made various adjustments and completed installation of critical ‎additional equipment. Valkor Engineering also used this time to run a testing ‎regimen on the plant, which will provide the necessary final data points for a proposed ‎expansion of the Asphalt Ridge Facility to up to 4,000 bbls/day of capacity.‎ “The Company has been working ‎with our engineering partners to improve production levels while still maintaining our ‎high quality oil. We have also been conducting engineering and process testing that is ‎critical in moving us toward our target expansion of 4,000 bbls/day in capacity,” Petroteq Executive Chairman Alex Blyumkin said in the news release. “The ‎work carried out this last month has been extremely beneficial in terms of increasing ‎productivity and is expected to enable us to achieve actual production closer to our current ‎nameplate capacity of 1,000 bbls/day. I would like to personally acknowledge the ‎workers onsite who have carried out this remarkable achievement while working in ‎what can only be described as very cold and inhospitable weather conditions in ‎January and February.”‎
