Ceco Environmental to treat crude oil storage facility’s seepage water

Ceco Environmental Corp has secured a new order to help treat seepage water at a major international crude oil storage facility.

Ceco will manage the engineering, design and delivery of a water treatment system planned to eliminate sludge by removing contaminants such as oil, solids, and harmful chemicals prior to any re-injection or potential discharge.

With a storage capacity of 42 million barrels of crude oil, the facility will process approximately 24 million barrels of seepage and filter out more than 18 000 metric tons of contaminants when it is completed in 2022.

“We are extremely gratified to be selected for this project. Our experience in similar applications, ability to integrate critical technologies into customer specific solutions, and reputation for end-to-end execution led to a great win for our team,” said Dennis Sadlowski, CEO of Ceco. “With 42 million gallons of stored crude oil, our customer needed an efficient solution to ensure a clean and safe operation. The Ceco team spent several months assisting our customer to develop the best system that will provide flexibility and fulfill the required regulatory and compliance commitments.”
