GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - May 19, 2014) - Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. (SEER) (PINKSHEETS: SENR), a provider of next-generation clean technologies, renewable fuel and waste management innovations, today announced its MV Technologies ("MV") subsidiary was just awarded an additional patent affording significantly expanded coverage for its innovative V3RU™ (vapor recovery) technology, designed to minimize methane and other greenhouse gas emissions from oil and gas field operations. The initial patent was issued June, 2012.
"The V3RU™ was specifically engineered to improve emissions of methane and other volatile organic compounds (VOC) from lower producing well sites," said Dr. Michael Readey, Executive Vice President of SEER. "These smaller wells are economically viable but cannot justify the more expensive and complex emission technologies found at larger operations. Our patented system is uniquely scalable and cost effective for these smaller wells. It is simple to operate, maintenance free and requires no electricity, making it an ideal solution for the thousands of wells in remote locations throughout the country."
"In recent field trials with one of the largest oil and gas producers here in Colorado, our V3RU™ product has successfully captured production tank greenhouse gas emissions under a wide range of operating conditions," added Readey. "Based on these positive results, we believe the V3RU™ is a very cost-effective solution to the increasingly stringent regulations targeting oil and gas operations. We plan to expand our efforts to include additional field demonstrations with other potential customers and formally launch the product in the second half of 2014."
"The issuance of a second patent represents much more than broader coverage for our V3RU™," said J. John Combs III, CEO and Chairman of SEER. "It represents a commitment and relentless effort by the Company to further develop and protect a growing portfolio of innovative and best-available environmental technologies for multiple and diverse markets. The V3RU™ was one of the primary reasons we acquired MV, and to see it evolve into what may be one of the most cost-effective solutions addressing a large and important segment of oil field emissions is indeed rewarding for us all, as well as beneficial for the communities where our customers operate. The timing of our rollout also seems to coordinate nicely with industry needs as an increasing number of oil and gas producers are collaborating with various states to reduce fugitive emissions and improve air quality in the fields."
