ProSep, a global leader of produced water solutions and technologies, has announced it has secured a contract for produced water treatment on Aker BP’s Norwegian-based Valhall new central processing and wellhead platform (PWP).
For the Valhall PWP – Fenris, which is part of Aker BPs plans to modernise one of its leading fields, ProSep will again deploy its CTour™ technology to be used within the platform’s produced water treatment system. This follows an initial successful installation of the CTour™ technology on the first production platform in 2010. The CTour™ process equipment removes both dispersed oil and water-soluble organics through condensate injection into produced water streams: a process that can be implemented on any offshore platform, onshore gathering site, or production facility.
ProSep, using both its proprietary high-efficiency mixers and its produced water treatment technologies, has a proven track record of providing process solutions that reduce chemicals use and increase the output of clean water. This latest contract award will see ProSep strengthen its position in Europe, and once again see the installation of the space-saving CTour™ process on a Norwegian Continental Shelf platform.
Valhall, a major field situated in the southern part of the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, has been responsible for the production of over a billion barrels of oil equivalent since the field first opened in 1982. Following significant investment that will see the revitalisation of facilities and the construction of new wells, Aker BP hopes to capitalise on the continued potential of the area.
Jacek Kacperski, ProSep’s Sales Manager for Europe, commented: “It’s great for ProSep to be involved with the development of the PWT system for the new Valhall platform. A full-circle moment, having successfully delivered on the first platform over ten years ago, this latest contract will allow us to implement our leading CTour™ process onto the new platform’s water treatment system. The CTour™ process will ensure clean produced water that is ready for discharge, and that meets the latest regulatory requirements in Norway. A leading field in the Norwegian Continental Shelf, ProSep is delighted to be involved on the Valhall platform.”
