Even though the oil prices have recently dropped, the demand for oil is increasing. The oil industry is scrambling to find more cost effective and environmentally friendly methods to produce and refine the oil products. Jeanblanc International Inc. technologies were developed to meet these needs in an environmentally friendly way.

During the past 100 years, for every 1 barrel of oil produced 2 barrels are left in the downhole rock formations (see EIA chart below). This means there is no shortage of oil but instead, only a shortage of technologies to effectively secure the oil rather than leaving it in the rock formations which contain the oil downhole. Jeanblanc International's "Liquid catalystSM" or "LCSM" is a new technology that strips the remaining hydrocarbons to lowest stranded amounts of any existing down-hole method at a fraction of the cost of opening new wells.

Jeanblanc International Inc. (JBI) discovered a new molecular science which it has spent years in R&D and millions of dollars to create a new enhanced oil recovery technology called “Liquid CatalystSM”. LCSM which takes electrochemistry to a new level using internally discovered new molecular science. The combination of JBI's proprietary process and chemical formations creates new molecular properties which bond with hydrocarbons many times stronger than other molecular bonds, yet allows LCSM to be recycled and recaptured an unlimited number of times.Because this internal molecular bond is so strong it does not break-up when changing from liquid to vapor states regardless of the number of times it is done.

LC'SSM ability to recover the stranded oil and the unlimited number of times it can be recycled and re-used changes the economics of enhanced oil recovery and can be considered a capital asset.

LCSM’sattraction to the oil is many times stronger than oil's surface bond to the rock formation which makes it the most effective stripper in EOR technologies available in the O&G industry. Just as important is that LCSM also keeps the hydrocarbon from re-attaching to any other rock or sand surface while being pushed to the well bore for pumping to the surface.

Because JBI's proprietary science provides the ability to establish the vapor point of LCSM to match the project, LCSM can actually overcome its molecular saturation point which historically has been the limiting factor to most EOR methods

Another huge benefit of LCSM is its effectiveness in stripping which avoids the need to years of water flooding or other SOR methods. Specific formulations are used based on downhole temperatures to utilize the recycling caused by the temperatures, the specific formulation avoids the need to re-run multiple passes of LCSM from the injection wells through the pay zone to production wells because of the thoroughness of LCSM’S stripping. LCSM can strip the oil in a single pass when combined with normal water flooding methods to push it through the formation.

LCSM adds tremendous value to oil recovery as it not only recovers more oil than other technologies, LCSM temporarily changes the viscosity to that of diesel for easy movement until a set location where it can be distilled off with a few added degrees of temperature and recaptured for reuse.

LCSM has many applications from enhanced oil recovery such as down hole, oil sands and contaminated soil, to transportation in pipeline and tank cleaning. Due to LCSM characteristics, it can be fully re-captured and re-used depending on the tightness of the closed system such as when used for producing oil from oil/tar sands.

LCSM increases the efficiency of existing infrastructure with minimal additions. In lieu of drilling more wells, LCSM increases the operator's recovery of oil within the existing wells with very little additional investment or work using equipment of their existing production systems. Because LCSM does not mix with water LCSM can be used with existing water produced during normal oil production to push LCSM and stranded oil from underground formations so it can be pumped to the surface. While water flooding techniques have been used for secondary oil recovery since the 1920's, LCSM brings much higher level of efficiency to that approach as much as doubling the oil recovered using LCSM added as a "stripper" and followed with normal water flooding methods. Unlike other SOR technologies, LCSM is recaptured and reusable an unlimited number of times.

As large oil deposits become increasing scarce, new technology is being tested and used by oil producers and countries to extract more, difficult to reach oil from existing oil wells both on land and offshore. LCSM technology is the easiest and most effective new technology available today to enhance the oil recovered increasing it as much as the past total oil already produced from the developed reservoir. This makes LCSM a very cost effective and low risk method of oil production vs. drilling new much higher risk wells.

The industry standard is to try and lower the surface tension or adhesive force of the oil to the surrounding rock. In short, the industry standard practice is to try to make the rock formation more "slippery" using surfactant and polymer flooding. However, surfactants and polymers merely try to "wash" the oil from the rock formation with neither having the type of bond that is created between LCSM and the hydrocarbon. The bonding with LCSM will prove the difference in the effectiveness of the LCSM flooding and will increase the successful recovering of hydrocarbons. Industry studies of surfactant performance have proven that "non-ionic surfactants have not performed as well for [Enhanced Oil Recovery] EOR as anionic surfactants" Thus polarity plays a large role in the effectiveness of enhanced oil recovery techniques. In fact, studies have shown an almost geometric progression of recoverability based on the solubility ratio of the emulsion to oil in the micro-emulsion phase created with surfactants.

LCSM's "special carbon bonding" using a hybrid orbital creates an easily reversible temporary equilibrium state. This "special bonding" is supported by 1) the fact that LCSM's chemical formulation is many times more effective after the proprietary treatment using new electrochemistry science than in its untreated chemical formulation, 2) no other liquids have the same attraction and bond to LCSM as have been noted with hydrocarbons, 3) the change in the molecular weight of the combined LCSM and hydrocarbons after combination exceed that of water…(combined LCSM and hydrocarbon no longer floats on water), even with a more viscous combination than the hydrocarbon alone, and 4) both LCSM and the hydrocarbons are recovered separately in their original state after a slight additional heat with LCSM's properties and effectiveness remaining after each re-cycle for reuse.

Short Summary of PELSM Technology

Jeanblanc International Inc. discovered a new molecular science that has not been discovered by others as of date. Through years and over $10 million in R & D this new molecular discovery has been developed into 2 proprietary technologies of Jeanblanc International, JDP, Jeanblanc Desulfurization Process and LCSM an enhanced or secondary oil recovery process.
