Norman, OK, January 2, 2015 – Cimarron Energy Inc., a Turnbridge Capital Partners platform company, announced that it has received “Quad-O” certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its enclosed vapor combustors. The certification confirms that all five models produced by Cimarron are “manufacturer tested” and compliant according to the EPA’s “Quad-O” New Source Performance Standards for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at oil and natural gas production sites.
Said Larry Holdge, President of Cimarron, “Cimarron was a pioneer in developing enclosed combustion products in 2005 for emission compliance in Colorado and has a substantial installed base of combustors operating throughout the U.S. With this certification, Cimarron will have the largest number of approved units available for sale throughout the United States. Additionally, with capital provided by our new private equity sponsor, we expect to dedicate the resources necessary to expand our production capacity and geographic reach in order to assist our customers throughout the U.S. in complying with the new EPA regulations.”
Enclosed vapor combustors are used to incinerate vapor emissions produced in oil and natural gas development and processing. Cimarron offers a range of models to accommodate differing volumes, as well as ignition systems and data loggers for packaged units, that are all “compliance ready” with EPA guidelines.
Cimarron’s testing was completed earlier this year using an independent emissions testing company at a test site adjacent to Cimarron’s manufacturing plant in Newcastle, Oklahoma. A complete test rig was designed and built to simulate actual field installations, and testing was performed to the exacting standards as required by 40 CFR part 60 subpart 0000 Section 60.5413(d). Results of the testing proved all of Cimarron’s enclosed combustion devices (ECD’s) to have a VOC destruction rate efficiency of higher than 99.9%, surpassing the 95% as set forth in the regulations and positioning Cimarron’s products to meet the demands of even the most stringent markets.
