Siemens to Supply Filtration and Produced Water Treatment System for Su Tu Vang Central Processing Platform, Offshore Vietnam

J. Ray McDermott Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (JRMAP) has selected Siemens Water Technologies to provide filtration and produced water treatment systems to the new Su Tu Vang CPP (Central Processing Platform) to be operated by the Cuu Long Joint Operating Company, offshore Vietnam. The order amount is US$ 4.6M.

The filtration system will include fine and coarse filters that will be included in a seawater injection system for the removal of particulates. The produced water treatment system will include a skim vessel, hydrocyclones and dissolved gas flotation (DGF) equipment to treat produced water to meet discharge limitations. Project completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2008.

The fine and coarse filters supplied for the seawater injection system include backwashable coarse strainers for large particle removal, followed by dual-media fine filters to achieve particle removal to 2 microns. The produced water treatment system includes a vertical skim vessel for bulk oil removal, followed by hydrocyclones and proprietary flotation equipment for the removal of oil in water to below 35 ppm. The integrated Central Processing Platform (CPP) will be installed in about 170 feet of water. JRMAP will provide engineering, procurement, construction, installation, hook-up and commissioning services for the platform.

Crude oil production from the Su Tu Vang oilfield is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2008 and will steadily move up to its target of 100,000 barrels per day (bpd). Su Tu Vang will be the biggest oilfield to come on stream in Vietnam over the next three years, helping offset declining output in Southeast Asia's third-largest oil producer. The filtration and produced water treatment equipment selection was based on the success of similar equipment supplied by Siemens Water Technologies for the Su Tu Den field.
