LAS VEGAS, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivakor, Inc.

“We are very excited about the results of integrating a new solvent into our Remediation Processing Centers (RPCs) which expands the range of potential projects available to the Company. In certain parts of the world we are limited on the availability of hydrocarbon chemicals that are used in our process.

This level of post processed, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon residual is a standard required by many projects in the region. This opens up several new project possibilities for the company,” stated Vivakor Chief Executive Officer Matt Nicosia.
