Veolia Wins Water Treatment Deal for PDO’s RHIP Project

Date : Mar 22, 2016

Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia Water Technologies Gulf, has won a deal from Petrofac to provide process water treatment solutions on Petroleum Development Oman’s (PDO) Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP).


The agreement will see Veolia support the engineering and supply for the project, which is being managed by Petrofac on behalf of PDO, said a statement.


The project is scheduled for completion in May, it said.


The project facility includes sour gas processing facilities as well as associated gathering and injection systems, and export pipelines.


It handles the production of oil and gas from the Harweel oil reservoirs via Miscible Gas Injection and the production of gas with condensate from the Rabab reservoir through partial recycling of sour gas.


The firm's scope will be to provide treated water for different applications including boiler feed, potable water and service water.


Vincent Baujat, Veolia Water Technologies executive vice-president for the Middle East, 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.


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


Ray Richardson, country manager for Petrofac in Oman, said: “The Rabab Harweel Integrated Project is very important for Petrofac as it underpins our strategy to enhance service capability in Oman. Partnering with Veolia for water treatment is in line with our commitment to build local alliances and in doing so bring a strong and enduring team working alongside PDO to deliver this project.”
