Predictable Oil Waste Recovery Services

On Time, On Spec, On Budget

Unlike most service companies, we manufacture and operate our own sludge processing equipment, specifically designed for the oil and gas industry. This expertise enables us to take care of everything and make sure your project finishes on time, on spec, and on budget.

Everything Under One Roof

Most oil sludge remediation projects miss remedial target criteria, go over budget, or take too long. They look good on paper, but fall short in the field.

We remove these risks once and for all.

This is because we develop, manufacture, and service our own indirect thermal desorption systems to process oil-based drilling mud, slop oil, and hydrocarbon-contaminated soil.

With such comprehensive integration from start to finish, you benefit from highly optimized sludge oil recovery services at a much reduced cost.

Even better:

By being your single point of contact, we take full responsibility for every aspect of your sludge separation project.

After hiring our team of specialists, you can sit back, while we'll do all the heavy lifting, such as:

  • Transportation of the equipment.
  • Setting up the recovery system, even in the most remote areas.
  • Daily operation (we can train your own crew on your request)
  • Proper maintenance (no costly downtime anymore)
  • Making sure all effluents (water, sediment, and hydrocarbons) are on spec, and stay on spec.

No more dealing with sub-contractors who barely speak English and shy away from responsibility.

Instead, you always know who is in charge and that any issue is taken care of immediately.

Now, let's take a look at the technology that sets us apart…

Oil Waste Recovery That Works

At Southwest Petroleum University of Chengdu, everything we do revolves around the oilfield industry, and when it comes to sludge removal technologies, we've seen them all.

What we found is that…

Traditional oil recovery equipment is mainly built around 2-phase and 3-phase separators. These so-called "soil washing" systems are prone to failure due to their overreliance on proprietary treatment chemicals.

Chemical additives work well in the lab, but tend to become a major headache under changing field conditions, where they need to be recalibrated constantly — or simply don't function as planned.

What's worst:

There is no way to detect the problem until the equipment is already in operation, at which point your investment is at stake.

To eliminate this costly point of failure, we developed our own oily waste processing unit that doesn't use any fragile treatment chemicals.

In other words: If it works in the lab, it works in the field.

All Advantages in a Nutshell

  • No reliance on treatment chemicals eliminates a major point of failure.
  • Fast separation of feedstock into clean water, oil, and solids.
  • Fully automated recovery process for minimized maintenance.
  • Ideal for operation in remote areas and harsh environments without electricity and limited water.

These advantages are made possible by incorporating a technology called indirect thermal desorption into an oil waste recovery system specifically built for the oil industry.

As our indirect thermal desorption unit (ITDU) is fully computerized, only a small team is required to operate it.

At the same time, every person on our team is an oilfield professional with several years of experience:

Get Your Own Team of Specialists

Our oil-recovery service crews excel at what they do, forming well-coordinated teams of specialists. Safety and efficiency are of most importance, which is reflected in the composition of each crew.

For example:

The operation team of our sludge oil recovery system (Zoom Lion ITDU) comprises a health and safety (HSE) engineer, a mechanical engineer responsible for the operation of the system, and several trained professionals to assist in the cleaning process.

If requested, or required by local law, part or all of the operation crew can be employed locally. In this case, we will train all personnel and supervise the operations to make sure everything is up to standard.

You Are in Good Company

Zoom Petro is a partner of Sinopec in the design and operation of drilling mud and oily waste recovery equipment.

A major reason for Sinopec's decision to cooperate with us is that the Zoom Petro indirect thermal desorption unit not only eliminates hydrocarbon contamination, but also adheres to the highest air pollution standards.

This makes our system the only affordable equipment to meet China's latest requirements on the remediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated waste.
