In situ Heavy Oil Bioremediation in Alberta

Using a special microbial blend, Delta Environmental has been successfully bioremediating high concentrations of heavy oil in soil around pipelines and oil production equipment.  At a typical site, Delta reduced the concentration of petroleum C34 to >C50 from 130,000 mg/Kg to less than 10,900 in 30 days.  That is a removal rate of 3,970 mg/Kg/day.  This approach not only benefits the environment and meets green cleanup standards, but saves money and equipment downtime for the facility.

Petrox Bioremediation of Oil-Field Waste

Petrox bioremediation of oil field wastes reduced concentrations in lagoon sludge fast.  Petrox is a specialty bioremediation product comprised of patented strains of live vegetative aerobic microorganisms providing fast, effective degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons.

The oil-field pit treatment demonstrates the effectiveness of Petrox to treat oil production wastes encountered during the closure of multiple lagoons in the Southeast. Regulations required oil and grease concentrations below 1% prior to closure. Petrox reduced the petroleum to compliance levels in less than 30 days.
