Veolia has been awarded a contract by Petrofac to provide process water treatment solutions on Petroleum Development Oman’s Rabab Harweel project.

The agreement will see Veolia support the engineering and supply of water treatment systems for the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP) in the south of Oman, which Petrofac is managing on behalf of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).

The project is scheduled for completion in May 2016.

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 VP for the Middle East, said: “Veolia is very pleased to 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.”
