Oilfield services provider Petrofac has awarded Veolia Water Technologies Gulf a contract to provide process water treatment solutions on Petroleum Development Oman’s (PDO) Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP).
The contract sum was undisclosed but the project is scheduled for completion in May 2016.
The agreement will see Veolia support the engineering and supply of water treatment systems for the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project in the south of Oman, which Petrofac is managing on behalf of PDO.
The RHIP 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.
Veolia’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 & gas industry in Oman, having also provided water treatment solutions to other National and International Oil Companies there.”
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.”
