GSE provides coal producers a low tech, viable ex situ method for direct coal liquefaction. The most significant benefit is
to open new markets to coal producers by offering an economically and environmentally sustainable method for solubilizing coal
and increasing the value of the coal product.
Oil Sands Extraction
GSE provides a cost-effective solution to extract bitumen or crude oil from mined oil sands. The benefits include reducing the
demand for utility resources in the extraction process, particularly reducing the use of water and eliminating tailing ponds,
improving bitumen recovery rates, and the ability to economically process oil sands with lower quantities of bitumen.
Crude Oil Recovery
The in situ use of reagent, GSX®, has the potential to enhance ultimate recovery in an oil reservoir during any phase of
oil production including: in primary mode using it as a reservoir pressure maintenance agent; in secondary mode instead of
waterflooding; and in tertiary mode after waterflooding with the addition of surfactants. An additional advantage of using
GSX® for in situ crude oil recovery applications is to maintain a longer peak oil production period, thus reducing project
