BELLEVUE, Wash., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Westmont Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: WMNS) ("Westmont"), today announces it is closer to reaching its goal, through the introduction of Eco-Recovery4 (ER4), to dramatically reduce the adverse environmental impacts of competing conventional oil and gas extraction methods. This increases the potential for universal acceptance of ER4 as the preferred extraction alternative by operators, regulators, environmentalists and the public. Operators will also enjoy significant cost advantages as ER4 yields superior extraction results and negates the costs of environmental damage mitigation.
A key component of ER4 is the re-injection, after heating and pressurizing; of the well's own naturally produced gases. The re-injected gases under intense pressure and heat facilitate the heavy oil extraction process. When coupled with the utilization of FracSolv™, another ER4 component, the technology is readily adaptable to Shale fracturing systems.
FracSolv™ is an all-natural 100% biodegradable Surfactant based, Anionic Polyacrylamide (PAM) that acts as a stable colloidal particle dispersion solution. The micro-particles in FracSolv™ utilize the mechanism of disjoining pressure once the micro-particles encounter a discontinuous phase. FracSolv™ acts to separate oil and natural gas from the formation's surface, thereby accelerating the recovery of oil and natural gas reservoirs. The FracSolv™ solution has no systemic toxicity to any aquatic organisms or microorganisms and remains 100% biodegradable and environmentally safe throughout its useful product lifespan. FracSolv™ was developed exclusively for Westmont and the proprietary formula is a protected trade secret of Westmont Resources Inc.
ER4 provides a net neutral environmental impact with no contamination as is generally the case with other competing extraction methods such as steam injection and the common introduction of nonbiodegradable chemicals.
