Project Objectives

Gulf Coast Green Energy is proposing to demonstrate a modified waste heat generator that uses produced water to create “green” electricity usable on site or for ransmission off site for field operations. The overall objective is to identify and demonstrate technology that will reduce the field operating cost of electricity and minimize the environmental impact by creating green electricity using produced water and no additional fossil fuel.
