The pilot system will be installed with LiqTech SiC membrane technology in order to test the use of SiC membranes for a range of produced water applications. LiqTech believes that this first order can lead to follow-on sales in 2015.
Finn Helmer, LiqTech CEO, said: “LiqTech is actively pursuing opportunities in the field of produced water treatment within the oil & gas industry. We are currently engaged with many oil & gas projects primarily in Europe, the Americas and China – and this order adds to our presence in the Middle East.”
LiqTech is currently working with more than 50 oil companies, operators and system integrators in Europe, Americas, Middle East, Southeast Asia and China on SiC membrane projects in various phases from initial evaluation to commissioning.
