The Hellervik Oil Conditioning Unit (OCU) unit is designed to be totally self-contained and “green” environmentally. It uses the off gas as fuel for a natural gas/LPG engine/generator to supply electrical power for the process heat (no fired heater/burner). Alternatively, the unit can be run off the grid or a diesel genset, producing flare or “sales gas” if a gas gathering system is available, and is currently configured as 3- phase 480V at about 100kv. The unit is very thermally efficient, with built in feed/effluent exchangers, and has all liquid/gas connections conveniently located at about knee level near one end of the skid for very rapid connection. The unit is fully heat traced, insulated and instrumented for winter operation in the Bakken. Bob Falkiner, P.E. Crude & Fuels Technology Consulting Inc.

Hellervik Oilfield Technologies is pleased to announce that the first two of its patent pending, crude oil conditioning units is the final stages of assembly and will undergo hydro-testing in the next two weeks. The control and electrical pallet has shipped to Green Bay, WI where it will be mated up with the oil processing skid to form the completed assembly. Hellervik invites all interested Bakken oil companies to preview the units at the plant. For those who cannot schedule a hands on visit, there will be a video of the unit in fabrication at the Hellervik Oil Technologies YouTube channel.

Hellervik Oilfield Technologies has engaged Dr. George F. Vesley, PhD to help design and perform the experiments that will be presented to the ASTM Crude Vapor Task Group at its meeting in Orlando, FL in Dec 2016. The experiment will be rigorously designed and executed to enable peer review. George received his Ph.D. in 1968 from California Institute of Technology. His credentials include: 45-years of experience in photochemistry, 30 years of industrial experience, 4 years of academic experience, 32 issued U. S. patents, 24 publications in scientific journals, and membership in the American Chemical Society. We are proud to have Dr. Vesley on Team Hellervik.
Hellervik Oilfield Technologies is planning to locate a 5 million cubic feet per day natural gas processing plant on a densely wooded 127-acre site located approximately 7 miles east of the Bowling Green city limits on HWY 31W frontage parcel. This site ensures that the plant will not be visible or audible to any residential parcel in Edmonson County. Hellervik has worked hard to address the concerns voiced by the community regarding the gas plant which previously operated near Rocky Hill. The plant will meet all environmental requirements of the Kentucky Division for Air Quality. The company will begin taking applications for on-the-job training positions within the next 60 days. A spring 2017 opening is planned.
Hellervik Oilfield Technologies is a new member of the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce. Bowling Green is the third largest city in Kentucky and is an important industrial and educational center. The city is home to the Chevrolet Corvette assembly plant and many auto parts manufacturing facilities. Western Kentucky University has been here since 1906 and has over 20,000 students. Hellervik has been actively marketing its natural gas to industrial customers in the area with its new pipeline that enters the city along HWY 31W near the new Transpark Industrial Park.
