The project will be carried out by Alderley Process Technologies, a subsidiary of Alderley plc, the firm said.

The Kaombo field is located 260 km offshore Luanda in Angola and has an output of around 230,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd).

The operator, Total, has a 30 per cent share on Block 32. The other partners are Sonangol Pesquisa & Producao (30 per cent), Sonangol Sinopec International Limited (20 per cent), Esso (15 per cent) and Galp (five per cent).

Two identical produced water treatment systems are expected to each process 170,000 bpd produced water, stated Alderley.

The systems feature Alderley’s AP20 de-oiling hydrocyclones, Alderley’s AP25 de-sanding hydrocyclones and Compact Flotation Unit (CFU), the firm said. 

“Alderley have delivered a number of produced water treatment packages specifically designed for an FPSO environment. We recognise the strategic importance of this flagship project for Total and its partners and we are proud to be able to leverage on our extensive experience to offer the best technologies for their produced water requirements,” said Tony Mansfield, managing director, Alderley Process Technologies.
