THE WOODLANDS, TX, Aug. 2, 2011 -- C'treat Offshore, a unit of ITT's Industrial Process business, will supply Spain's Castor Underground Storage (UGS) project with a desalination system that provides a dependable source of fresh water for offshore drilling and production operations.
According to C'treat, the Model 2CFD101-3 Reverse Osmosis Watermaker will alleviate the energy project's cost and reliability concerns about fresh water, whether for drinking, equipment wash down, or well injection. The system features two fully independent, nine cubic-meter-per-day water making systems.
The Castor UGS project in the eastern Mediterranean Sea converts the depleted Amposta oil field (which lies at a depth of approximately 1,800 meters, about 22 kilometers off Spain's East Coast) into an underground gas storage reservoir. The project involves two offshore platforms, 13 wells and processing facilities, an onshore compression and processing plant located in the Vinaroz municipality, and an adjoining pipeline.
"As a company focused on solving critical problems for our oil and gas clients, we are pleased to have the opportunity to help Spain's UGS Project with this custom solution," said Scott Campbell, C'treat's sales manager. "Our C'treat solutions play a major role in addressing global water supply challenges on more than 400 offshore platforms."
