Sulphco Gets Tapped to Test in Europe

SulphCo Inc. says that, in concert with its European test partner, it has commenced continuous test runs of heavy crude through a 15,000 bpd Sonocracking unit.

Trial runs began on October 30, running a heavy crude (16.5 degree API gravity, sulphur content .5% by weight) through a 5,000 bpd skid (three of which in parallel comprise a 15,000 barrel per day commercial unit). Sufficient crude oil capacity has been allocated by the Company's European test partner to allow continuous operation at maximum design flow rates without interruption.
