Petroteq Partners with Cavitation Technologies Inc. to Test Equipment for Non-Conventional Oil Production

Studio City, California–(Newsfile Corp. – July 10, 2018) – Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE) (OTC Pink: PQEFF) (FSE: PQCF) (“Petroteq” or the “Licensee”), a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, announced an agreement with Cavitation Technologies, Inc (“CTi” or the “Licensor”), a company providing highly scalable and cost-effective solutions to various fluids processing industries. The companies have entered into a licensing agreement to test its equipment during oil production for workflow efficiencies and to lower its cost of production obtained through Petroteq’s oil sands extraction process.

The agreement between Petroteq and CTi will seek to generate a modification of non-conventional oil, in the form of bitumen, obtained through oil sands. CTi’s Nano Reactor System™ utilizes proprietary technology that is capable of influencing and altering the chemical and physical composition of certain crude oils and hydrocarbon substances in a manner that may enhance the yield and economic value of refined or processed oils and related hydrocarbon products.

“We are excited to be partnering with CTi. With our recent upgraded facility site, we are now exploring opportunities to make our products more cost-effective and efficient. We feel that it is important to engage on the innovation of our R&D with other compelling technologies that have the potential of generating scalable solutions within the industry,” commented David Sealock, Chief Executive Officer of Petroteq.

Additionally, CTi’s Founder and Global Technology Manager Roman Gordon stated, “Over the last decade we have introduced our proprietary technology in a number of different verticals while creating partnerships with industry leaders. This agreement provides our companies the opportunity to develop and implement technologically advanced processes that will greatly improve efficiencies over conventional methods while achieving increased margins and profitability.”

CTi’s Nano Reactor System™ will combine bitumen extracted by Petroteq with a catalyst to create a fluidic crude oil. The fluidic crude oil is pumped through a cavitation device at varying pressures to create cavitation features. Reacting with the fluidic crude oil, the process generates cavitation bubbles, which mix with adjacent layers of condensed fluidic crude oil. This mixture induces chemical reactions between components in the fluidic crude oil to promote molecular rearrangement to improve viscosity, API gravity, and heterogeneity.

Petroteq Reaches Corporate Inflection Point

Studio City, California–(Newsfile Corp. – July 9, 2018) – Petroteq’s Asphalt Ridge Facility (TSXV: PQE) (OTC Pink: PQEFF) (FSE: PQCF) (“Petroteq” or the “Company”) a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, is pleased to update investors on the progress at its Oil Extraction facility in Asphalt Ridge, Utah.

Second quarter activities secured the completion of construction at the Asphalt Ridge facility, which is designed to produce 1,000 barrels per day (bod). The Company’s recent news for the first half of 2018 has been very exciting:
new capital of approximately US$3.86 million to date in 2018
the placement of key technical advisors to Petroteq’s advisory board
initial production.

News in July is what our current and future investors will be most interested in….we are on track to initiate “full on” operations at the end of July and ramp up our production to what we expect will be 1,000 bod.

On June 14th, Petroteq commenced its process train commissioning and start up with the successful completion of “first commissioning oil production” at our operations of the Phase 2 — expansion at the Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility located near Vernal, Utah, designed to produce 1,000 bod.

These operational developments have driven multiple initiatives at the Company that are anticipated to help the Company grow from its current position:
New research and development projects are underway which should further increase the efficiency and applicability of Petroteq’s patented extraction technology.
Petroteq has staffed up its internal team and advisory board to handle multiple business development initiatives related to domestic and international opportunities.

“The Asphalt Ridge project has surpassed expectations. The facility process trains are coming fully online safely, the production ramp-up plan is on schedule, and the commissioning and start-up activities are set to produce a high-quality heavy oil. We are especially appreciative of the dedication and careful planning and execution that our team and partners have demonstrated in achieving this remarkable result,” said David Sealock, Chief Executive Officer. “Our investors and stakeholders can be proud of advances being made initiating the ramp-up of our production.”

“The successful completion of construction and commissioning at the Asphalt Ridge project is the direct result of a well-developed and executed strategy to complete construction and accelerate commissioning using synergies between our technical team and Asphalt Ridge operations staff,” said Alex Blyumkin, Founder and Executive Chairman, “the progressive hand off from construction to operations, is expected to  see a staged ramp-up of production over time. The project was built during a period of low oil prices and has come online just as oil prices have strengthened.”

Following the June 14, 2018 “first commissioning oil production” of Asphalt Ridge’s first train, Petroteq anticipates operating the plant at a “ramp up capacity” by the end of July, which would prove the design capacity of 1,000 bod. At this time, the Company will be completing a two-week reliability test of the plant running in excess of 80% capacity.

Petroteq Energy Receives Notices on New Patents in the US and Canada Covering Oil Extraction Technology

Petroteq’s technology is highly energy efficient and environmentally sustainable

Los Angeles, California–(Newsfile Corp. – January 10, 2018) – Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) (FSE: A2DYWC) (“Petroteq” or the “Company”), is a company focused on the development of and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry. Petroteq’s portfolio includes technology for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The Company has announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for U.S. Patent Application 13/627,518, “Oil From Oil Sands Extraction Process” and a Notice of Allowance from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office for Canadian Patent Application 2,754,355, “Oil Extraction Process.”

“We are very excited to receive the Notices of Allowance from the respective U.S. and Canadian patent offices,” said Alex Blyumkin, CEO and Chairman of Petroteq. The patents are part of Petroteq’s intellectual property portfolio that includes patent protection in Russia. The Company has applied for protection in all of the countries with significant Heavy Oil assets that it believes show promise for Petroteq technology. To learn more about Petroteq’s intellectual property protection team click here: www.nydegger.com.

The Company would like to remind investors that while the patent is new — the technology has been used by Petroteq in its heavy oil extraction facility:

Petroteq produced and sold 10,000 barrels of oil in 2015 using this technology at its first facility in Maeser, Utah.
The Company is assembling a facility with the potential for 400% of the initial capacity at its lease site at Asphalt Ridge, Utah (1,000 bpd).
The Company is building this expanded oil extraction facility in the U.S., where all industrial processes are expected to be on the Blockchain powered supply chain management PetroBLOQ, being developed in partnership with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (BITCF) (“First Bitcoin”). The production and refining of oil has risen to unprecedented levels in the past few decades to meet global refined products consumption demand. As a result, there is a great deal of public scrutiny into oil refining practices, its environmental impact, and the sustainability of the oil supply chain.

“This is our first initiative to address the industry’s growing concerns by developing sustainability benchmarks. We believe this is good news for oil producers, regulators, and consumers. Emerging technologies like PetroBloq blockchain platform should have a transformative impact on the global oil industry — not only by creating transparency in the supply chain but also creating value for its stakeholders, upstream, midstream, and downstream,” stated Alex Blyumkin, CEO.

The two patent allowances cover the Company’s novel process for extracting bitumen — the heaviest, densest form of petroleum — from oil sands in a highly energy efficient, environmentally friendly manner. Petroteq’s technology utilizes no water in the extraction process, produces no greenhouse gases and requires no high temperatures or pressures. The system extracts up to 99% of all bitumen, heavy oil and other lighter hydrocarbons, while recycling up to 99% of the benign extraction solvents.

“Our technology development has been inspired in large part by witnessing the catastrophic devastation in so many of the world’s major oil sands projects. Petroteq’s driving philosophy has been that the extraction industry must be able to achieve efficiency without leaving a wake of destruction to the surrounding environment,” stated Mr. Blyumkin.

“The patents pave the way for significant potential commercial licensing opportunities,” said Dr. Jerry Bailey, President of Petroteq. “Concurrently we are making progress across a spectrum of development activity that can place Petroteq in a position as an industry technology leader. We have made significant progress on the assembly of our own extraction facility in Utah, home to most of the oil sands reserves in the United States. Meanwhile, our PetroBLOQ joint venture with First Bitcoin is seeking to develop the first supply chain management platform based on blockchain technology for the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry.”

“Our goal is to create the first extraction facility in the U.S. in which all industrial processes will be powered by our blockchain-based supply chain management system,” continued Dr. Bailey. “We have an expansive vision to leverage technology to make a transformative impact on our industry, and we believe in the power of collaboration. We recently became members of Hyperledger, the open source collaboration to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, and the American Petroleum Institute (API). We look forward to working with our colleagues across industries and borders to help create lasting improvements in efficiency while being mindful of our environment.”
