Canadian holding company MCW Energy Group demonstrated its initial oil sands extraction plant at Asphalt Ridge, near Vernal, Utah, to a group of investors, MCW shareholders, and local and state officials during a ribbon-cutting event. MCW’s guests were given a tour (far right photo) of the new plant while it was operating, and each person was provided with a vial of the day’s first oil production, along with a sample of the processed, clean sand. Among the many MCW and Utah state dignitaries present (above photo) were Val Hale (left) director of the Utah Energy Development Department, Aleksandr Blyumkin (center), chairman of MCW Energy Group, and Utah state Sen. Kevin van Tassell (right). “The extraction of oil from Utah’s oil sands unlocks millions of barrels of oil that will further supplement the energy needs of America,” said MCW’s CEO, Dr. Jerry Bailey. Several items remain to be finished before the plant begins regular production, including a process optimization assessment; analysis of sand and air samples to confirm environmental compliance; and completion of safety documents.
