Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia Water Technologies, has been awarded a contract by Qatar Engineering & Construction Co. to engineer, procure and deliver a wastewater treatment plant for Dolphin Energy's natural gas production and processing facilities in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
The wastewater treatment facility will provide quality water for reuse. Kinetic Hydrate Inhibitor polymers will also be eliminated from the residual wastewater. Start-up is expected in September 2017.
Veolia was awarded a contract in 2015 for its HPD evaporators, which will be used for KHI removal and distillate recovery. With this new contract, Veolia will also provide a pretreatment package upstream of the evaporators using its MPP Tilted Plate Flotation technology.
Thierry Froment, chief operating officer for Veolia Water Technologies in the Middle East, commented, “Veolia has a rich history in Qatar supported by the development of a number of important projects, including one of the main treatment plants in Doha. We look forward to working again with Qatar Engineering & Construction Co. to deliver this project for Dolphin Energy.”
Ras Laffan is an industrial town about 80 km from Doha. Veolia is already involved in operations in Qatar, including the design, build and operation of the Doha South Wastewater Treatment Plant and the implementation of a “Zero Liquid Discharge” process at Shell’s Pearl Gas-to-Liquid complex in Ras Laffan.
