:: MGX Minerals Announces Installation of Second Oilsands Wastewater Treatment System


MGX Minerals Inc. has reported that engineering partner PurLucid Treatment Solutions expects to complete installation of a second wastewater treatment system this week, with full commissioning of the system on track to be completed by the target date of June 7, 2019.

The system has been deployed to an oil sands facility in Alberta and will treat a combination of wastewaters typical for steam assisted gravity drainage (“SAGD”) facilities to levels suitable for reuse or low-cost disposal. The oilsands operator has agreed to pay a fixed processing fee and will benefit from significant cost savings while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

MGX and PurLucid’s technology provides superior treatment outcomes when compared to conventional technology because it can treat wastewater brines without having to cool water first. This results in significantly less energy use for a SAGD facility when managing produced water and also eliminates the major operational challenge of a heat exchanger fouling.
