EcoVapor Wins 2018 STEER Eagle Ford Excellence Award
- EcoVapor Recovery Systems wins Safety Performance award
- Zer02 units have no moving parts and help eliminate the need to flare by removing oxygen to capture 100% of tank vapor flash gas
DENVER, CO (December 18, 2018) – EcoVapor Recovery Systems LLC today announced that the South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) selected EcoVapor as a winner in their sixth annual Eagle Ford Excellence Awards. The STEER awards honor leading companies and organizations working in or with the oil and gas industry for their diligent efforts in protecting the environment, making safety a top priority and giving back to the communities in which they live and work.
EcoVapor’s innovative Zer02™ oxygen removal system was selected because it facilitates the capture of tank flash gas and for its unique reliability, both of which increase production site safety. Third-party judges were used to evaluate the entries to ensure objectivity and technical scrutiny of the nominations. EcoVapor was recognized as the winner of the Safety Performance category for companies with fewer than 250 employees.
Zer02 units use proprietary technology to remove oxygen from the production stream, enabling operators to capture and sell high-Btu content tank vapor flash gas, lowering tank pressures in the process.
EcoVapor’s Zer02 solution also improves air quality. Enabling operators to capture and sell tank vapor flash gas significantly reduces, and often eliminates, the need to flare or combust gas. Reducing or eliminating flaring decreases NOx and VOC emissions, which lessens the environmental impact of oil and gas producing operations.
Zer02 units have no moving parts, reducing repair and maintenance needs which minimizes the need to have people travel to and from well sites so equipped. For the two years ended August 2018, the Zer02 fleet has accumulated an impressive track record of reliability, typically 100% uptime, and not one production site using the solution has experienced unexpected shut-ins as a result of high oxygen levels.
Peter Mueller, Senior Vice President for Regulatory Affairs and Co-Founder, said, “We are both humbled and excited to receive this recognition from STEER. This award further highlights the value proposition of the Zer02 solution, which gives operators a proven and very reliable method to remove oxygen from the production stream and capture the value of high-Btu tank vapor gas that would have otherwise been flared. In short, Zer02 can help operators in any region improve safety, reduce emissions, enhance air quality and make money doing it.”
