About Petroteq Energy Inc.

Petroteq is a clean technology company focused on the development, implementation and licensing of a patented, environmentally sound and sustainable technology for the extraction and recovery of heavy fuel oil and bitumen from oil sands and minable oil deposits. The versatile technology can be applied to both water-wet and oil-damp deposits and delivers high-quality oil and clean sand.

Petroteq believes its technology can produce a relatively sweet heavy crude from oil sands at Asphalt Ridge without the need to use water and therefore not produce wastewater that might otherwise require the use of other treatment or disposal facilities that could be harmful the environment. Petroteq’s process is said to be a more environmentally friendly extraction technology that leaves behind clean residual sand that can be sold or returned to the environment without the use of sedimentation tanks or further remediation.
