LAS VEGAS, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivakor, Inc. (OTC: VIVK), a technology and asset acquisition company with a focus in the area of natural resources, has recently finished third party testing of an additional solvent for use in its Middle East remediation projects.

This level of post processed, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon residual is a standard required by many projects in the region.
