GAT, along with its partners are in the unique position of being able to provide numerous services that are state-of-the-art.
Liquid Catalyst - LC
GAT’s Liquid Catalyst, “LC”, creates a temporary bond with the hydrocarbon that is so strong that the oil releases from any formationincluding water. The LC℠ bond makes the oil separate from the water or other formations and is heavier than water so it drops below water and does not mix with the 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 LC℠ catalyst is recaptured for re use, the hydrocarbonseparated andback to its original state, or salvaged and ready for processing, and any water is separated from LC™ and the oil.LC Is used in enhanced oil recovery, cleaning and water separation.
There is a substantial loss of oil besides creating pollution with the production water that comes from producing oil. In many fields two barrels of water are produced with each barrel of oil. GAT’s Oil/Water Separation Process separates the oil from production well water, salvages the oil for processing, cleans the water of oil to a few ppm and recaptures the LC™ for re-use.

ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY:
OIL/Tar Sands: Canadian Oil Sands Demohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7j9Kpxt1kE&feature=youtu.be
The GAT Oil/Tar Sands Extraction process extracts the oil from oil/ tar sands by using the proprietaryLC Wash System. Unlike the present costly “Steam Extraction” technology, the LC℠ Wash System is a closed modular unit that can be located near the mining operation and it does not require significant energy nor water. No air or water pollutions are created. The oil/tar sands are cleaned to ppm, the oil is recovered for processing and the LC is recaptured for re-use.
The LC is put downhole in as a liquid followed by normal water flooding. Once down hole the temperature changes the LC to a vapor so it is able to reach into the pores and crevices of the rock formation. TheLC℠ 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. LC℠ is formulated to the specific project needs including downhole oil field temperature. In this way we use the downhole heat to turn LC™ to a vapor in the formation to capture the most stranded oil, drop the oil to the channel where LC™ turns back to a vapor to capture more oil. Using the downhole heat for recycling as our LC™ pulls the oil from the formation is the reason our LC™ is cost effective vs. other chemical enhanced oil recovery methods. We set LC™ for a minimal temperature change using downhole heat for using the vapor form LC™ to break the oil/LC 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 LC recycling downhole is why our LC™ 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,LC™ is reclaimed ready to be re-used at the next field.

LC™ separates oil from water and the oil does not attach to even the shell.
GAT’s water separation technology uses proprietary equipment and LC to separate the oil from the water. Once encapsulated, the oil/LC is easily removed or drained off leaving the water cleaned of oil. The oil/LC is heavier than water and will not re -attached to any formation until the bond is broken. The oil is salvaged for processing, the LC 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: Cleaning contaminated soil is similar to the recovery of oil from oil/tar sands. (See the Oil/Tar Sands page)The contaminated soil is placed into the LC Wash system. OnceLC touches the oil in contaminated soil; the oil and LC create a temporary bond that releases oil from any medium including water, sands, or soil. The oil is released from the specific formation such as soil or water. When the LC 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/LC is pumped from the bottom of the tank. The oil/LC has the viscosity of diesel for easy flow until a set point where minimal heat is applied the temporary bond between the oil/LC℠ is released. The oil is ready for processing, the LC is ready for re-useand the contaminated soils are clean to low ppm levels of oil.
Cleaning tailing ponds: The contaminated water is pumped into the proprietary LC SeparationSystem where the LC is mixed with the polluted contaminated oil water.LC creates a temporary bond withany hydrocarbon so it immediately separates the oil from the water and other contaminants or formations. Since the LC makes the hydrocarbon heavier than water the water is easily pumped off and free of oil. The oil &LC is pumped off andat a set location, theLC &oil is pumped into a LC reclaiming tank. Minimal heat is applied to release the LC℠ from the oil for reuse. The oil is ready for processing, the LC is ready for re use and the water is cleaned of any hydrocarbons
The LC is sprayed on the oil that is floating on the water. The LC encapsulates the hydrocarbon creating a temporary bond that is so strong that it releases from any material including water. The Oil/LC is heavier than water so the oil/LC drops to the bottom of the water where it stays together. The oil/LC is pumped to a tanker where it can be transferred to the LC separation system where the oil/LC bond can be released or it can be released with minimal temperature increase. The water is easily separated from the oil/LC with the oil/LC heated a few degrees to release the oil/LC bond. The LC is recaptured to be used again and the oil is ready to be sold for normal processing(rather than creating huge beach pollution costs) 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 LC is mixed with the oil/water. The LC 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/LC is pumped to another tank where minimal heat is applied to release the bond. The LC is recaptured for re use and the oil is salvaged and ready for processing.
LC encapsulated oil separates from the water and drops below the water where it stays separated until the oil/LC is removed from the water.
Land Oil that reaches the shoreline would be scraped off and placed in the LC modular Wash System which is the same system for the recovery of oil from oil/tar sands.(See oil/Tar Sands page)Thissystem cleans the soil, salvages the oil, cleans any water and the Oil spills on land would be treated like the recovery of oil from oil/tar sands. The contaminated soil would be scraped and put into the LC℠ modular wash System.(See oil/Tar Sands page)wherethe contaminated soil would be basically washed separating the oil from the soils and salvaged for processing and the LC would be recaptured for reuse in the system.
