CASE STUDIES

Oilsands operation significantly improves employee safety, and costs of mobile equipment maintenance.

Major oilsands producer finds significant value through reduced cleaning times and overall plant & vehicle turn around using MegaSol.

CHALLENGE
A major oilsands producer was cleaning their heavy haul trucks with a hazardous product containing high concentrations of volatile organic compounds that resulted in headaches and sick days for employees. The equipment cleaning time was considered too high and the chemical usage to remove bitumen and hydraulic greases exceeded the customer requirements. The chemical being used left a slippery residue on the equipment and floors that did not come off with repeated rinsing, raising concerns about the health and safety of the workers on and around the equipment.

SOLUTION
Evergreen Solutions developed MegaSol’s formulation to address the issues of bitumen and hydraulic grease removal.

RESULTS
MegaSol provided the customer with the following benefits:

•Eliminated employee sick days due to headaches and other chemical exposure issues
•Eliminated slip hazards on equipment and floors
•Reduced equipment time out of service
•Reduced chemical exposure and delivery frequency
•Reduced manpower and chemical cost per vehicle washed

CASE STUDIES

Operator reduces chemical volumes, time and costs associated with tank cleaning.

PROBLEM
A major service provider for an Oilsands operator was preparing storage tanks for entry and inspection. The degassing and degreasing chemicals they had historically been using could not be diluted for application and could not be mixed for a single step process. This resulted in high chemical costs and extended times required to prepare the tank for entry, impacting the overall cost and scope of the turn-around.

SOLUTION
With a clear understanding of the customer’s objectives of reducing chemical costs and the amount of time available to effectively prepare the tank for entry, Evergreen Solutions developed a customized solution for the service provider. With a complete solution including the chemistry and a full procedure, Evergreen Solutions was able to help the service provider exceed the operator’s expectations for the tank entry timeline and costs.

Using TASER DGH and TASER FDG at the recommended dilutions, temperatures, flows and duration, the service provider was able to condense the entry preparation procedure into a single step process, reducing the time, equipment needed and ultimately the cost of the project.

CASE STUDIES

SyntheSol greatly increases productivity and safety while reducing costs.

CHALLENGE
An Alberta-based energy company was facing equipment shortages due to lengthy turnaround times in their outsourced pig cleaning process. Potential solutions considered by both the energy and service companies were for the purchase of 60 to 90 additional pigs and/or a second custom-built cleaning unit to meet demand.

SOLUTION
SyntheSol
, a high loading solvent, engineeredas a safe alternative to hazardous solvents was introduced into the cleaning procedure. In addition, Evergreen Solutions identified a third business to haul away the recovered bitumen/oil at no cost for use as fuel in their waste oil burners.

RESULTS

• Pig cleaning times were reduced from 35mins to 10mins – per pig
• Increased turnaround efficiency from 6 to 15 pigs per day
• Previously used flammable, carcinogenic solvents removed from cleaning procedure
• Eliminated need to purchase additional pigs and an additional custom cleaning unit
• The heater used in previous procedure was no longer required saving an additional $600/month in energy costs
• The 95L of bitumen/oil recovered from each cleaning procedure is now hauled away at no charge to the service company, saving an additional $5000/month
