Oilfield Technology,

SUEZ – Water Technologies & Solutions has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by MODEC Offshore Production Systems (MODEC) for the supply of a seawater injection system including sulfate removal technology (SRU).

The equipment will be located onboard a converted FPSO vessel that MODEC is constructing on behalf of Woodside Energy (as operator of the Rufisque Offshore, Sangomar Offshore and Sangomar Deep Offshore joint venture) for the Sangomar oilfield located approximately 100 km south of Dakar, Senegal.

“This award marks the third SRU contract awarded by MODEC to SUEZ and is a sign of our growing and important relationship with the company,” said Kevin Cassidy, executive vice president, engineered systems for SUEZ – Water Technologies & Solutions. “SUEZ is unique in the offshore oil industry because of our ability to manufacture membranes while also designing and building the process plants that use them. This contract is further validation that our technology drives value and optimises performance for FPSO operators.”

The award is for the design and supply of the complete seawater treatment plant with a 23 000 m3/day capacity, including coarse filtration, ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and vacuum deoxygenation equipment. Site requirements call for the plant to produce water with sulfate levels below 40ppm.

The contract includes project management, procurement, construction supervision, and delivery to MODEC’s integration yard.
