Recon Technology, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RCON ) ("Recon" or the "Company") today announced Gan Su BHD Environmental Technology Co., Ltd ("Gan Su BHD"), 51%-owned subsidiary of the Company's VIE affiliate, signed a one-year sludge treatment agreement with Sinopec Huabei Oilfield Branch Oil Extraction First Factory ("Huabei Oilfield").
According to the agreement, Huabei Oilfield engages Gan Su BHD to dispose of the oily sludge of the Pingliang Industrial Zone. Gan Su BHD shall bag, transfer, and dispose of oily sludge pursuant to national safety and environmental protection requirements. The total fee is calculated by multiplying the actual transshipment sludge treatment tonnage by the unit price per ton ( RMB 2,145 , or approximately $306 ). The Company estimates that the oily sludge amount to be disposed during one year is approximately 2,000 tons.
Oily sludge is one of the most significant solid wastes generated in the petroleum industry. It has been estimated that one ton of oily sludge waste is generated from every 500 tons of crude oil processed. Oily sludge disposal will positively reduce the volume of hazardous petroleum sludge from storage tanks, and therefore reducing environmental pollution.
"Recon's mission is not only to promote the oilfield production but also to protect public safety and the environment," Mr. Guangqiang Chen , co-founder and CTO of Recon said. "In addition to signing this agreement with Huabei Oilfield, we have also reached other deals with other oilfields, such as Yumen Oilfield. We expect that these agreements can bring our company more than $1 million in income during 2020."
