MODEC Offshore Production Systems (MODEC) has awarded a contract to SUEZ – Water Technologies and Solutions for the supply of a seawater injection system including sulphate removal technology (SRU).

Kevin Cassidy, executive vice president of engineered systems for SUEZ, said: “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 equipment will be located on-board a converted floating production, storage, and offloading (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, which is located approximately 100 km south of Dakar, Senegal, Africa.

Cassidy added: “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.”

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

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