Suez to provide membranes for 15 Petrobras FPSOs

Suez Water Technologies & Solutions has signed a multi-million dollar contract with Brazilian oil and gas company Petrobras to supply membranes for 15 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) platforms.

Under the renewal contract, Suez Water Technologies & Solutions will be the exclusive provider of membranes used in seawater sulfate removal (SWSR) systems on the 15 FPSO platforms operated by Petrobras in Brazil’s Campos, Búzios, Espírito Santo and Santos oil basins.

“Petrobras is a leader when it comes to deep water offshore oil recovery,” said Kevin Cassidy, executive vice president, engineered solutions for Suez Water Technologies & Solutions. “We are proud that they continue to rely on our membranes to prevent scale in injection wells and to better mitigate well souring by reducing sulfate.”
