Saipem awarded Alderley a contract to design, engineer and fabricate two FPSO-produced water treatment packages for the Kaombo FPSO Project in Angola. The project will be undertaken by Alderley Process Technologies, a subsidiary of Alderley.
Scope of supply is for two identical produced water treatment systems that will each process 170,000 b/d produced water. The systems comprise Alderley’s AP20 de-oiling hydrocyclones, Alderley’s AP25 de-sanding hydrocyclones, compact flotation unit (CFU), a sand wash vessel and an additional oily water reject treatment stage. The complete produced water treatment system is designed to meet the oil-in-water discharge levels of <20mg/l and 0.5% by weight, oil on sand.
Design and engineering will be provided by Alderley Process Technologies team in the UK and manufacturing will take place in the Middle and Far East.
The Kaombo field is located 260km offshore Luanda in Angola and will produce around 230,000 b/d.
Operator Total has a 30% share on Block 32. The other partners are Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção (30%), Sonangol Sinopec International (20%), Esso (15%) and Galp (5%).
