Imperial Resources, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Imperial Oil & Gas, Inc. (together the ‘Company’, ‘Imperial’) is pleased to announce that the final plumbing and electrical wiring work at its largely rebuilt Green Tide Salt Water Disposal Facility (SWDF) is underway.
All pipe work has now been delivered to the site. The electrical work in progress will continue contemporaneously with the other work scheduled this upcoming week. A roustabout crew is scheduled to start assembly of the piping work which was designed over the past two weeks, on Wednesday, May 30, 2012. Once the water leg and overhead pipes are installed the last two portable frac tanks can be moved into position, fibreglass retrofitting made, and hooked up. Upon arrival of the frac tanks the final fiberglass repairs to the frac tanks, the oil stock tank and a storage tank, all of which were pre-owned, will be completed.
The Company’s electrical engineer contractor has finalised the safety shut off design and computer system and the Company is ordering the necessary equipment, including the pump control sensors required to automate SWDF operations. Upon delivery they will be installed prior to testing and placing the SWDF into commercial operation.
Lightning protection designs have been submitted and analyzed. Upon the completion of the surface structures, each tank will be independently grounded with lightning protection. The Company will use a lightning protection system that meets National Fire Protection Association installation standard NFPA 780, Underwriters Laboratories installation requirement UL 96A, and Lightning Protection Institute quality standards. This system must be in place prior to the acceptance of any delivery of produced water.
