The multi-million dollar contract from SBM Atlantia, is for VWS Westgarth’s SRP system to be installed in the Baleia Azul field, Campos Basin, offshore Espirito Santo state, Brazil. The SRP is designed to remove sulphates and other divalent ions from injection water to enhance oil recovery using Dow Filmtec membranes. The removal of these ions reduces the tendency of barium sulphate and strontium sulphate scale to form in the reservoir.
This new award will be VWS Westgarth’s first collaboration with SBM Atlantia. The contract will be project managed and engineered in VWS Westgarth’s offices in East Kilbride, Glasgow, UK.
