Australian project will be the largest offshore floating facility in the world
VWS MPP Systems, subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, has been awarded a contract by Samsung, as part of the Technip Samsung Consortium (TSC), to supply a Macro Porous Polymer Extraction (MPPE) water purification unit for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility.
The MPPE unit will be used for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project in Australia, the largest offshore floating facility ever built in the world (488 meters long, 74 meters wide).
During the production of natural gas, formation and dehydration water is co-produced containing dissolved and dispersed aromatic, aliphatic and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Veolia’s MPPE water treatment technology helps to achieve Shell’s environmental objectives.
Samsung Heavy Industries is one of the largest shipbuilders in the world and has the world’s largest dry dock, which makes the production of the Shell FLNG possible.
