Viscositor, enables the on-site upgrade of heavy oil to light oil, meaning oil producers:

  • Have no need to purchase or transport to site diluents commonly used to make the heavy oil pumpable.
  • Increase the value of produced oil by supplying higher grade oil direct to refineries.
  • Can upgrade the oil at a lower total cost compared with current “upgraders” whilst using less energy than current technologies. 
Viscositor - A Summary of the Technology
  • The technology is a novel adoption of FCC technology 
  • It produces an upgraded Synthetic Crude Oil (SCO) capable of being routed directly to a refinery
  • Low pressure & low temperature process reduces the end cost to customers
  • It does not use advanced catalyst or engineering materials
  • The process is self sustaining with no external power required beyond start-up
