Greenes Energy Story

The Companys predecessor, Greenes Pressure Testing and Rentals, Inc. was
founded in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1953 to provide rental tool and testing
services for the oil and gas market
In the late 60s and early 70s, Greenes added a line of rental equipment to
accompany BOP testing. In the mid 70s, it started performing production tests,
and testing of heaters, separators, flow lines and pipelines.
Hydraulic torque wrench services were added in 1982.
In the 80s it expanded into the testing, flushing and reinstatement of piping,
flanges and valves for construction of offshore drilling rigs, barges, structural
components of fixed platforms, production modules, floating MOPUs and topside
production decks for platforms.
Over the years GEG has been successful in extending its geographic footprint
and expanding its services lines through the acquisitions of an array of Oil & Gas
service groups.
2008 GEG Expands Pipeline services into Brazil
2010 GEG open Asian Pacific Office to service both the Middle East and Asian
Pipeline markets.
GEG Positioning of an Asian based asset pool.
Most recently GEG has added Water Treatment Services and expanded
operations into Brazil.
Bob Vilyus Chief Executive Officer has held numerous leadership
positions at companies within the energy services industry and prior to
joining GEG he served as President and CEO of PII North America, President
of Weatherford Compression and President of Gemoco. He has been directly
involved in 22 acquisitions and has extensive international business
experience.

Vacuum Drying
Principle: Water boils at -20 deg C at 1 mbar pressure. So
reduction in pressure in system to saturated vapour
pressure can cause water to boil which can be removed as
gas with a vacuum pump
Stages
Initial Draw Down Phase: Pressure in pipeline will be brought down to
23 mbar so that water will boil at 20 deg C (ambient temperature)
Vaporization Phase: Vacuum pump will continue pumping water
vapours out of system
Final Draw down phase depressurize to 1 mbar
Soak Test Monitoring for 12 hrs

Acceptance: maintaining the pressure of 1 mbar for over a


continuous period of 12 hrs.

Nitrogen Purging
Limits of Operation:
from permanent pig
launcher at Senipah
terminal to
permanent pig
receiver at Ruby PQP
Due to very high
