Veolia to deliver water treatment solutions for Petrofac’s Oman project

Veolia Water Technologies Gulf has secured a contract to deliver process water treatment solutions to oilfield services provider Petrofac.

Under the deal, Veolia will be responsible for providing solutions on Petroleum Development Oman's Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP), which is managed by Petrofac on behalf of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).

Veolia will also have to support the supply of water treatment systems, as well as engineering for the RHIP project located in south Oman.

Veolia Water Technologies Middle East vice-president Vincent Baujat said: "Veolia has now become a trusted partner for the oil and gas industry in Oman, having also provided water treatment solutions to other National and International Oil Companies there.

"The plant manages production from the Harweel oil reservoirs through miscible gas injection."

"Veolia is very pleased to now be working with Petrofac, a globally respected EPC Contractor, bringing our international expertise and local Omani knowledge."

Scheduled for completion in May, the RHIP facility features sour gas processing facilities, export pipelines and associated gathering and injection systems.

The plant manages production from the Harweel oil reservoirs through miscible gas injection, as well as production of gas from the Rabab reservoir through partial recycling of sour gas.

Petrofac Oman country manager Ray Richardson said: "The Rabab Harweel Integrated Project is very important for Petrofac as it underpins our strategy to enhance service capability in Oman."

The French resource management company will supply treated water required for different functions such as potable, service and boiler feed.

Veolia offers a range of solutions to handle water and waste for the oil and gas industry.

In January, Veolia delivered industrial wastewater treatment solution for Associated British Foods in Thailand.
