STRATHMORE, Alberta, Canada, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Purestream Technology successfully initiated a pilot project in Strathmore, Alberta using its AVARA System to treat produced water from oil and gas operations in the Manville Sandstones of Southern Saskatchewan. Purestream is demonstrating its ability to treat and recycle water for potential future use in enhanced gas recovery in the Manville and for hydraulic fracturing in the Saskatchewan portion of the Bakken Shale. In November, Purestream signed a commercial contract with Whiting Petroleum to recycle water from its Bakken operations in North Dakota.

Oil and Gas producers, government officials and the media will tour the Purestream pilot facility in Strathmore to learn about the technology's ability to effectively treat and recycle produced and flowback water from hydraulic fracturing operations.
"We are excited about this pilot project and the potential to treat and recycle water for oil and gas operations in Saskatchewan and elsewhere in Canada," said Purestream CEO Neil Richardson. "Our AVARA technology is uniquely capable of helping producers across Canada meet increasingly stringent environmental requirements."

Late last year, Purestream performed a successful pilot project near Edson, Alberta that demonstrated the AVARA's ability to treat produced and flowback water from several Canadian oil and gas production facilities. The AVARA System can treat water with a broad range of characteristics and allow for beneficial reuse.
Purestream's AVARA System was developed in partnership with Utah State University's Energy and Space Dynamics Labs. It cleans and recycles wastewater using an accelerated vapor recompression process which removes harmful contaminants and renders it cleaner than drinking water.
Purestream Technology is a privately held company that offers a suite of patented environmental solutions focused on the treatment of wastewater, air emissions, renewable energy and data tracking. Water solutions include evaporative and vapor recompression technologies and other thermal processes for air and water challenges. Purestream partnered with USURF's Energy and Space Dynamics labs in 2007 and continues aggressive research and development of future oil and gas solutions.
