A water treatment method that concurrently subjects water to: (1) a biological water treatment process that removes a first set of organic materials from the water and (2) a physical water treatment process that removes a second set of organic materials from the water. A water treatment system that concurrently removes aqueous phase organic materials from water using a biological removal system that includes microorganisms and a physical separation system that includes sparging equipment for sparging the water to remove non-aqueous phase liquid organic materials, volatile phase organic materials.


Patent
Glori Energy | Date: 2011-06-22

A method of microbial enhanced oil recovery from a wellbore in an oil-bearing formation that includes injecting water into the oil-bearing formation via a tubing string in the wellbore and introducing oxygen into the oil-bearing formation for consumption by microbes in the oil-bearing formation. The oxygen introduction includes delivering the oxygen into the oil-bearing formation without having the introduced oxygen contact the walls of the tubing string and without having the introduced oxygen contact the injected water within the tubing string while the injected water is in the tubing string.

Glori Energy | Date: 2013-03-14

A method of optimizing recovery of oil from a formation that includes injecting an oil tracer into an injection well in the formation and applying a tertiary oil recovery process for recovering the oil from the formation. A production well is monitored to detect the oil tracer in oil from the production wells within particular times. The method also includes modifying the tertiary oil recovery process based on the detection of the oil tracer in oil from the production well.


Patent
Glori Energy | Date: 2013-03-14

A method of recovering oil from a formation that includes the use of surfactants at low concentrations. The surfactant may be an oleophilic surfactant. The method may include conditioning an oil recovery system to inhibit microbes that could consume the oleophilic surfactant. A method that determines the concentration of a surfactant that is sufficient to change the interfacial tension between oil and water in a near well bore area of an injection well in a formation but does not require changing the interfacial tension between oil and water outside the near well bore area.

In the quest to get more oil from the ground, Glori Energy is enlisting microbes. The Houston, Texas-based company today filed to go public on the stock market in a bid to raise $115 million with a biotechnology designed to extract more oil from existing wells. Well more than half of the oil in oil wells typically stays trapped underground because conventional techniques can't reach it all. About 10 percent to 15 percent of available oil can come out based on pressure. Then drillers flood wells with water in one well to help push the oil out of a second well, explained Michael Pavia, the managing director of Glori Energy, in an August interview. Rather than use brute force, Glori Energy has developed a technique called Aero which stimulates the growth of underground bacteria to change the flow patterns in the porous underground rock, Pavia explained. The growth of bacteria can also act like a surfactant between oil and water to ease the flow of oil, he said. The Aero system injects nutrients into the water being pumped into a well to grow more of the desired bacteria. The system also helps remediate the well water which is contaminated with different chemicals, Pavia said. In tests, the technique has been able to recover 9 percent to 12 percent of the original oil in a well, according to the company's S-1 filing. In the U.S., that would represent billions of barrels of oil, Pavia said. There are at least two other companies that are using this microbial approach to extract more fossil fuels from existing wells and mines. Ciris Energy and Luca Technologies, which filed to go public earlier this year, use biological techniques to stimulate the growth of natural gas from coal seams.

On February 21, 2015 over 500 business leaders and companies in Houston took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate fitness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute providing area companies and business leaders an opportunity to show the importance of living a fit and healthy lifestyle. Participants ranged in age from professionals in their early 20’s to executives in their 60’s and ranged in fitness level from beginners who had never worked out before, to advanced participants who exercise on a regular basis. Participants worked to complete a variety of fitness stations tailored to their fitness level to earn points for their company to win the coveted Fittest Company award. Advanced level participants also competed for the Fittest Executive, Fittest Entrepreneur, Fittest Lawyer, Fittest Doctor, and Fittest Professional awards. At the 2nd Annual event in Houston, companies came out in full force to show Houston they live fit with Houston Methodist taking 1st place in the Overall Fittest Company Category. “The Fit Company Challenge was a great experience,” Said Jennifer Borders, Wellness Director at Houston Methodist. “Houston Methodist prides itself on creating opportunities for our employees to get active and embrace a healthy lifestyle. We had an overwhelming participation and came home with some key wins. We are looking forward to next year!” David Weekley Homes first entered in the 2014 Austin challenge, and after finishing as the top company, they looked to give employees in other cities the chance to demonstrate the company’s commitment to health and fitness. “At David Weekley Homes, we make fitness and health a priority because it helps in every aspect of our Team Members’ lives – both personal and professional,” Said Jackie Hanson, HR & Benefits Administrator and Captain of the Houston Team. “To be able to participate in the Fit Company Challenge was a great opportunity for us to live out our continued commitment to Wellness while working together as a team to accomplish our goals!” On event day, with the help of over 70 volunteers assisting the contenders, participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance in order to show their companies and colleagues that they practice what they preach. Participants used their involvement to bring out company team members, and family members to cheer them on and even run with them during the endurance course in the challenge. The challenge was held at the Houston Dynamo Sports Park, just a few minutes from downtown Houston. The following is a list of the top finishers in the 2015 Houston Fit Company Challenge: Most Influential Award – Given to the company that received the most social media likes on their profile page Most Inspirational Award – Selected by the Fit Company event team based on the company’s performance during the challenge Organizations that brought out volunteers to assist contenders on event date include – About the Fit Company Institute, LLC: The Fit Company Institute is based in Austin, Texas and is dedicated to inspiring America’s workforce to live fit and healthy through new, innovative, and exciting fitness events for companies and business leaders.
