Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Awarded Contract for FPSO Located Offshore Angola

Glasgow, 1st September 2011 - VWS Westgarth, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by SBM Inc. for their existing installation, FPSO (Floating Production, Storage & Offloading vessel) Xikomba. FPSO Xikomba was previously operating in Block 15 offshore Angola and is planned for relocation to new moorings in an adjacent area of that block (block 15/06).

The award is for the design, procurement and supply of equipment and provision of construction technical assistance for a single lift module seawater sulphate reduction package (SRP) system with a capacity of 117,455 BPD (18,672 m3/day) and an integrated seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) system with a capacity of 12,075 BPD (1,920 m3/day).

The SRP is designed to remove sulphates and other divalent ions from injection water to enhance oil recovery using Dow Filmtec™ membranes.The removal of these ions reduces the tendency of barium sulphate and strontium sulphate scale to form in the reservoir.

This new award will be VWS Westgarth's eighth collaboration with SBM Inc. and can be attributed in some manner to the success of the previous SRP projects executed for the company in which VWS Westgarth demonstrated the ability to effectively work with and support the SBM project teams.

The contract will be project managed and engineered in VWS Westgarth's offices in East Kilbride, in the outskirts of Glasgow, where the company's numbers have grown to more than 160 Oil and Gas industry dedicated staff.
