ABOUT

Our patent registered technologies and years of close co-operation with and support of the Norwegian oil and gas industry actors, resulted in the development of our modular and compact systems that can remove oil from water and soils in full compliance with the strictest environmental standards in the world, such as the ones adopted by the European Union.

 

We restore legacy contamination sites by removing imbedded oil from soil and water and remediating problems of current oil production, such as removing oil drill cuttings and from produced water, or recovering oil trapped in refinery sludge lagoons.

 

ERA processes operate at the lowest recovery costs in the industry and create improved yield through recovery of marketable oil. Our low labor and maintenance requirements reduce the need for expensive crews and heavy capital investment to replace worn equipment.
