Extracting crude oil from reservoirs and using flood water in a more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally-friendly way
Water flooding methods are used in 90% of all conventional oil recovery fields. Current methods such as polymer flooding, acidizing, and fracking are both costly and harmful to the environment, so most oil reserves are left unrecovered.
Vortex Oil Engineering has developed an eco-friendly method of improving the oil recovery process. Our technology is designed to improve the efficiency of the water flooding method used in oil production by 500%. Prolonging the life cycle of that water usage increases recovery effectiveness and reduces polluted water recycling costs. Our devices are tailor-made to match the parameters of each injection well. They use only water pressure in the flooding pipes, require no power supply, and can be installed in an hour.
We already have potential clients ready to go to trial in the U.S. and Canada, and plan to expand to the U.S. as soon as we acquire our next stage in funding.
The MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) informs, connects, and coaches technology entrepreneurs—enabling them to rapidly transform ideas into world-changing companies. We are a global network of local organizations, inspired by MIT, and open to the world.
Our vision is to build a better world by accelerating the creation and growth of world-class technology companies.
