From upstream to downstream, Molecular Filtration, Inc. (MFI) offers a wide range of solutions. 


The upstream segment of the industry, often called exploration & production, is traditionally what comes to mind when people think of the oil and gas industry. Companies will search prospective areas for potential reserves of oil and gas and perform geological tests called seismic tests, to determine the size and composition of the resource. Initial wells are often drilled to "explore" the basin, and if satisfied with results, a company will enter the production phase to extract the hydrocarbons.


Here is a short list of application MFI can help to increase your profitability


  • Produced water recycling/reuse, with recovery of valuable oil
  • Frac water  recycling/reuse
  • Effluent treatment
  • Oil/water separation
  • Heavy crude optimization
  • Asphaltene removal
  • Heavy metal removal from crude oil




The downstream sector involves the refining and processing of hydrocarbons into usable products such as gasoline, jet fuel and diesel. Refining is required since "raw" hydrocarbons extracted from the ground are rarely useful in their natural form. The refining process is a complex chemical process that helps separate the hundreds of hydrocarbon molecules into useful forms. Petrochemical plants also break down hydrocarbons into chemical compounds that are used to create a myriad of products ranging from plastics to pharmaceuticals.

When it comes to a refinery our solutions are made specifically to the separation of organics, organics from water and organic/organic separations.

We name a few of the application MFI can help increase your profitability:


  • Solvent concentration/recovery
  • toluene
  • xylene
  • esters
  • glycol ethers
  • terpenes (d-limonene isomers)
  • more



Need to reduce cost UPSTREAM & DOWNSTREAM?

Why dispose of your product water when you can cleaned and reused?

Why pay for extra transportation of produced water when you can re-inject the water in your oil field?

The simple question is WHY YOU TRANSPORT WATER out of your oil field?
