Liquid Catalyst - LCSM
LCSM is a new Liquid CatalystSM that is formulated and enhanced with proprietary technology to give it new characteristics. No valuable resources are used such as water, no pollution is created and only minimal heat of 140F is used to recover the LCSM.
LCSM creates a temporary bond with the hydrocarbon/oil that is so strong that the oil releases from any formation or media including water and temporarily changes the oil viscosity to that of diesel for easy flow. The LCSM bond makes the oil heavier than water so it drops below water. This bond stays strong and in place until a set point when minimal heat is applied. At that point the temporary bond is released, the LCSM catalyst is recaptured for reuse, the hydrocarbon/oil is separated back to its original state, ready for processing and any water is separated from the oil. Numerous test reports state that LCSM removes and cleans soils and water of hydrocarbons to ppm.

Info on LCSM
- LCSM is a new Liquid Catalyst SM that is formulated and enhanced with proprietary technology to give it new characteristics
- Lower OPEX and CAPEX cost
- Does Not create environmental pollution or waste of natural resources such as water.
- Recovered for re-use
- Uses a simple closed wash system that can be located near the production well sites (Saving cost)
- Separates and salvages the oil from water leaving only a few ppm in the water or almost non-detectable levels. Immediate soil reclamation.
- Creates a temporary molecular bond with the hydrocarbon that is easily released with a few degrees of temperature increase
- Many times stronger than any surface tension bond
- Separates the oil immediately from water or other formations
- Causes the oil to release from any surface including sand, soil, rock and water
- Keeps oil from re-attaching to any surface.
- Only a few ppm or non-detectable levels are left
- Immediate soil reclamation
- Quickly breaks water emulsions
- Makes heavy oil viscosity that of diesel for ease movement and will not re-attach until the LCSM /oil bond is released
The oil is ready for processing, the water or soil is cleaned to ppm and ready to be returned to the environment and the LCSM is recaptured for re-use.
LCSM extracts more hydrocarbons then other technologies as proven at the University of Regina in Canada.
Example of LCSM’s Effectiveness
LCSM encapsulate and recover bitumen
from any medium even shingles to ppm
The LCSM bond is so strong it immediately encapsulates the bitumen and separates and cleans the various components of a shingle by simply soaking the shingle in LCSM for a few minutes. Each part of the shingle is cleaned to ppm as shown in the picture. No heat or pressure was used.
LCSM alone separates the hydrocarbon from the contaminated medium whether water, soil or sands and with our specialized equipment developed for LCSM, we speed the process while increasing the effectiveness. LCSM does not create pollutions and has a lower CAPEX and OPEX cost than traditional technologies.

Minute amounts of oil separated from water.
Note the encapsulated oil at the bottom of the vials, which was invisible in the water.
Emulsions or the mix of water and oil is a big problem in the oil industry. LCSM technology stops emulsions by quickly separating the oil from the water. The LCSM Separation Technology encapsulates the oil, separating it from the water while making the oil heavier so it can quickly be removed from the water. LCSM can encapsulate even the small parts of oil left so the water is cleaned to ppm. The oil is recovered for processing, the is water cleaned and the LCSM is recaptured for re-use. This oil/water LCSM separation process is important in the recovery of oil from downhole.
Cleaning Production Water
The production water which is a natural part of the payzone is usually re-injected into the same zones as the oil well. However, there are minute parts of oil in this water which is lost and can in some sand formation create pollution. The LCSM Separation technology can capture the minute parts of oil in the production water and salvage it for processing and prevent pollution.

GATSM’s water separation technology uses proprietary equipment and LCSM to separate the oil from the water. Once encapsulated, the oil/LCSM is easily removed or drained off leaving the water cleaned of oil. The oil/LCSM is heavier than water and will not re -attached to any formation until the bond is broken. The oil is salvaged for processing, the LCSM is recaptured for re-use and the water is cleaned of oil/hydrocarbons. Similar process as cleaning oil spills on water and tailing ponds.
Contaminated Soil Cleaning and oil spills
Cleaning contaminated soil is similar to the recovery of oil from oil sands. (See the Oil Sands page) The contaminated soil is placed into the LCSM Wash system. Once LCSM touches the contaminated soil; the oil and LCSMSM create a temporary bond that releases oil from any formation including water. The oil is released from the specific formation such as soil or water. When the LCSM is bonded with the oil, the oil is heavier than the water so the oil drops to the bottom of the tank. The water flows off the top and the oil/LCSM is pumped from the bottom of the tank. The oil/LCSM has the viscosity of diesel for easy flow until a set point where minimal heat is applied the temporary bond between the oil/LCSM is released. The oil is ready for processing, the LCSM is ready for re-use and the contaminated soils are clean to ppm levels of oil. Ready for immediate remediation and the oil is salvaged.
Cleaning tailing ponds:
The contaminated water is pumped into the proprietary LCSM Separation System where the LCSM is mixed with the polluted contaminated oil water. The LCSM creates a temporary bond with any hydrocarbon so it immediately separates the oil from the water and other contaminants or formations. Since the LCSM makes the hydrocarbon heavier than water the water is easily pumped off and free of oil. The oil & LCSM is pumped off and at a set location, the LCSM & oil is pumped into a LCSM reclaiming tank. Minimal heat is applied to release the LCSM from the oil. The oil is salvaged and ready for processing, the LCSM is ready for re use and the water is cleaned of any hydrocarbons..
The LCSM is sprayed on the oil that is floating on the water. The LCSM encapsulates the hydrocarbon creating a temporary bond that is so strong that it releases from any material including water. The Oil/LCSM is heavier than water so the oil/LCSM drops to the bottom of the water where it stays together. The oil/LCSM is pumped to a tanker where it can be transferred to the land where the oil/LCSM bond can be released or it can be released with minimal temperature increase on the tanker. The water is easily separated from the oil/LCSMSM and the oil/LCSM is heated a few degrees to release the oil/LCSM bond. The LCSM is recaptured to be used again and the oil is ready for processing and the water is free of hydrocarbons.
Another water oil spill process would be to skim the oil from the top of the water. The oil with some water is loaded onto a tanker, where the LCSM is mixed with the oil/water. The LCSM creates a temporary bond with the oil which is so strong the oil releases from any structure including water. The water is pumped off and the oil/LCSM is pumped to another tank where minimal heat is applied to release the bond. The LCSM is recaptured for re use and the oil is salvaged and ready for processing.
LCSM encapsulated oil separates from the water and drops below the water where it stays separated until the oil/LCSM is removed from the water.
Oil that reaches the shoreline would be scraped off and placed in the LCSM Modular Wash System which is the same system for the recovery of oil from oil.(See Oil page) this system cleans the soil, salvages the oil, cleans any water and the LCSM is recaptured for re-use.
Oil spills on land would be treated like the recovery of oil from oil. The contaminated soil would be scraped and put into the LCSM modular wash System.(See Oil page)where the contaminated soil would be basically washed separating the oil from the soils and salvaged for processing and the LCSM would be recaptured for reuse in the system.
GATSM also has emergency response and training for pipelines.
Drill cuttings and Production water
Drill cuttings cleaned to ppm while salvaging the oil
LCSM similar operations of cleaning contaminate soils and waters to quickly cleans drill cuttings and production water from wells to ppm allowing for easily disposal without damaging the environment.
GATSM technologies are the most efficient and cost effective technologies they are also environmentally friendly.
Report from Triton Lab on Oil sands shows only ppm were detectable after cleaning with LCSM.
ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY
Oil Sands Extraction
Oil is extracted from oil sands by using the proprietary LCSM Wash System. Unlike the present costly “Steam Extraction” technology, the LCSM Wash System is a modular unit that can be located near the mining operation and it does not require significant energy or water. LCSM Wash System is a revolutionary new environmentally friendly oil extraction process. No air or water pollutions are created. The oil sands are cleaned to ppm, the oil is recovered for processing and the LCSM is recaptured for re-use.
The LCSM is put downhole in as a liquid followed by the normal water flooding. Once down hole the temperature changes the LCSM to a vapor so it is able to reach into the pores and crevices of the rock formation. The LCSM creates a temporary bond with the trapped oil which is stronger than the surface tension. The oil then releases and drops to the bottom of channel of the pay zone where it flows like diesel through the channel to the well casing and pumped out. LCSM is formulated to the specific project needs including downhole oil field temperature. In this way we use the downhole heat to turn LCSM to a vapor in the formation to capture the most stranded oil, drop the oil to the channel where LCSM turns back to a vapor to capture more oil. Using the downhole heat for recycling as our LCSM pulls the oil from the formation is the reason our LCis cost effective vs. other chemical enhanced oil recovery methods. We set LCSM for a minimal temperature change using downhole heat for using the vapor form LCSM to break the oil/LCSMSM bond. The released oil is moved through the formation using water in the formation until it reaches the production well and pumped to the surface ready for processing. The LCSM recycling downhole is why our LCSM enhanced oil recovery is economically feasible due to recycling hundreds of times between the “injection well” until it reaches the “production well” which may be a mile or more apart. Once pumped to the surface with the oil LCSM is reclaimed ready to be re-used at the next field.
