Wentworth Energy, Inc. (OTCBB OTCBB
See OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB). :WNWG) announced today that University of Alberta oil sands professor Dr. David Sego has been named Executive Vice President of Technology at Wentworth Oil Sands. Dr. Sego will lead the R&D team at Wentworth Oil Sands as it moves to commercialize the patented Petromax hydrocarbon separation technology.
"We are extremely honored to be working with such a qualified and experienced oil sands professional as Dave Sego, who brings with him decades of research into oil sands' technologies," said Roger Williams, Wentworth Oil Sands CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. . "As the principal investigator at the Alberta Oil Sands Tailings Research Facility Dr. Sego is on the leading edge of oil sands separation technology, studying the viability of many of the technologies of interest to large oil sands producers. His facilities in Alberta have also conducted early research into the commercial application of the Petromax process."
"I believe the environmentally friendly Environmentally friendly, also referred to as nature friendly, is a term used to refer to goods and services considered to inflict minimal harm on the environment. and cost-effective Petromax technology represents a major incremental step forward in oil sands separation technology," stated Dr. Sego. "As Wentworth Oil Sands proves the technical and commercial feasibility of using the Petromax technology for oil sands extraction, it could have a very profound impact on the energy industry in the U.S., Canada and other parts of the world containing abundant oil sands deposits. The next step for the technology is to demonstrate in the field that we can use the Petromax process to deliver commercial scale heavy oil production, and that is what our research and development will focus on in the coming months."
"Several years ago, Dr. Sego spent a sabbatical working for Suncor Energy, the second largest oil sands producer," added Barry Rosengrant, Petromax Technologies founder. "Even though his main concentration is in the remediation of the huge oil sand emulsified tailings ponds, Sego is a walking encyclopedia of all things related to the production side of the oil sands business."
Dr. Sego is a University of Alberta engineering professor and the principal investigator at the University of Alberta's Oil Sands Tailings Research Facility, a unique academic and industrial research facility dedicated to collaborative and multidisciplinary oil sands tailings research. Since 1990 Dr. Sego has received over $9 million in research grants, new equipment and facilities, and grants and contracts from private industry and government agencies. The major focus of his research during this period has been on understanding the behavior of mine wastes in cold regions, as well as research on minimizing the environmental impact of industrial waste streams.
