Veolia Water Technologies, through its subsidiary VWS Westgarth Ltd, has been awarded a contract with Yinson for the supply of a Seawater Treatment and Injection (SWTI) system for the FPSO Anna Nery.
The seawater treatment system is provided over two integrated process modules and will deliver 38,000 m3/day of treated seawater for Enhanced Oil Recovery waterflood injection. At the heart of the process is the specialist Sulphate Removal membrane technology that, by removing the sulphates from the injected seawater, protects the oil reservoir against barium and strontium sulphate scaling and reservoir souring.
The SWTI contract for the FPSO Anna Nery is a landmark award for Veolia, being the first contract with Yinson, and is the positive end result of the continued support given during bid activities in 2019 and 2020.
VWS Westgarth is the world leader in sulphate removal systems and has an unequaled reference list in upstream seawater treatment applications. Many years of designing and building water treatment and desalination plants means that VWS Westgarth has a thorough understanding of water treatment processes. As part of Veolia, the company is able to utilise the specialist R&D and process abilities of the world's leading water treatment company.
