Alshawamikh along with its JV partners is working on a major Industrial contract in Oman to implement a natural and environmentally friendly water treatment system.
It was a major contract awarded by Petroleum Development Oman, the leading oil & gas exploration and production company in the Sultanate, a 20-year Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) contract for the treatment of 40,000 m3/d of produced water coming from oil fields located in Rima, about 700 kms South of Muscat, capital of Oman. This contract aims at implementing alternative techniques to treat and dispose produced water, which is the oily wastewater generated during the extraction and recovery of oil. This natural and environmentally friendly treatment system will avoid the disposal of hydrocarbon- polluted produced water in the deep well aquifers. It will also significantly reduce the oilfield’s environmental footprint and contribute to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.enquire now
