MEXICO CITY, MEXICO / ACCESSWIRE / October 10, 2018 / Genoil (OTC PINK: GNOLF) announced that it has dramatically improved overall performance and capabilities of its heavy to light crude oil upgrading technology ″Genoil GHU Technology.″ This further proves the GHU Upgrader’s flexibility and high profitability for conversion of Pemex crude oil. Converted high quality GHU crude oil can be exported from Mexico at a substantially higher price, with an estimated profitability of over $50.00 per barrel at today’s oil prices. The GHU is a cutting edge advanced hydroconversion technology which is based on a common refining process utilized globally to remove sulfur and other impurities in a variety of feedstocks. Genoil is using new and improved catalyst that considerably increases performance and reduces operating costs.At the wellhead, Genoil provides a complete standalone upstream solution for oil producers to substantially increase the value of crude oil through upgrading and sulfur reduction and reduced transportation costs. GHU Technology increases profit margins by eliminating the need for very costly blending or diluents for transport and virtually eliminates the need for natural gas for steam generation for thermal recovery. With International Maritime Organization’s 2020 legislation just around the corner and the price of crude oil rising drastically in recent months, which is forecasted to go much higher, Genoil is perfectly positioned to take advantage of these market trends. Genoil anticipates two more upcoming tests in the near future, one for a leading provider of compliance, consultancy service and classification to the marine industry who will dispatch personnel to UFA to witness the processing of fuel oil in UFA. The second for a national oil company which currently has over one million barrels per day of heavy oil production. Data collected for Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) will support the engineering and design of commercial GHU heavy to light crude oil upgrader.At the demonstration facility, heavy Pemex crude oil was converted by Genoil’s GHU Technology to a much lighter crude oil with demonstrations conducted at both normal throughput (100%) capacity and increased throughput (200%) capacity. At 100% throughput the feedstock was 10 API and was increased to 29 API. Sulfur content was 3.56 % wt. and was reduced to a level of 0.28%. When the throughput was increased with a process run at 200% capacity and much lower temperatures results were also good, feedstock of 10 API was increased to 20.1 API. The sulfur content was 3.56 % wt. and was reduced to 0.71% wt. These demonstration runs help position Genoil for full-scale heavy oil operations in Mexico and in other countries who have similar heavy oil characteristics. Founded in 1996 as an oil Exploration and Production company, Genoil Inc. is an independent, international oil company focused on heavy oil development and oil production using cutting edge advanced technologies, including its proprietary, patented heavy crude oil to light oil upgrading process ″Genoil GHU Process.″ Core operations are in Canada, New York, China, Russia and the Middle East, with business development opportunities worldwide. Genoil’s shares trade on the Over The Counter exchange in New York.

The GHU achieves 96% pitch conversion and 95% desulfurization with an operating cost of up to 75% less than the competition. For Conoco Canada Ltd, Genoil converted their bitumen of 6-8.5 API and converted it to 24.5 API. We also removed 92% of the sulphur reducing the amount from 5.14 % to below 0.24%. These results were taken by Conoco Canada Ltd, who had them analysed by Core Laboratories, one of the largest service providers of core and fluid analysis in the petroleum industry.About: The UFA Scientific Research Institute of Petroleum Refining and Petrochemistry: The State Unitary Enterprise ″Institute of Petroleum Refining and Petrochemistry of Republic of Bashkortostan ″ is located in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russian Federation.
