NEXT GENERATION WATER TREATMENT AND PROCESS TECHNOLOGY FOR OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS OPERATIONS

To ensure continued service from water treatment systems, a planned preventative maintenance programme is a valuable addition

If oil prices continue to fall there will be increasing pressure on the supply chain to remain robust to deliver on lifelong projects. It is therefore imperative that offshore operators partner with an organisation that, not only understands their market, but is an expert in its own offering. By collaborating with established suppliers, operators can ensure that they are supported throughout the different phases of their rig, from new build to refurbishment and retrofit.

Think Ahead To benefit from the process efficiency, cost, safety and environmental gains that can be associated with water treatment solutions, it is essential to make the right technology selection for the lifetime of a project. First and foremost, it is important to ensure that all technology purchased is from a trusted source. There are a number of providers on the market but not all will have the experience or complete capabilities necessary to offer the same level of service and support to guarantee peace of mind. As water treatment in the oil and gas sector provides such a vital function, it is critical that it performs to the highest standard. This is where preventative maintenance, with a full service and support offering, is key. If a system fails, then a plant faces unplanned and costly downtime. Worst case scenario would be injury or fatality and a hazardous disaster resulting in billions of dollars of environmental damage. To ensure continued service from water treatment systems, a planned preventative maintenance programme is a valuable addition. Some providers will be able to tailor these to meet the needs of different customers and industry requirements. Importantly, this will give ongoing peace of mind that the system is working, safe and reliable. For example, millions of dollars are lost on planned maintenance and subsequent downtime of blowout prevention systems through the lifetime of a rig. By employing Evoqua’s Rig Water Solutions for blowout prevention fluid management, operators are able to significantly extend their operation time between these scheduled maintenance events which means more uptime and less costs to manage equipment. Importantly, Evoqua offers customers complete compliance assurance. This means that, whatever stage of a system’s lifecycle a customer is facing, they will be fully supported. This extends from product support, preventative maintenance programmes, spare parts supply and servicing, through to operator training. Evoqua’s engineers understand the specific needs and challenges of the oil and

gas sector to ensure optimal and uninterrupted service for customers.

Looking to the Future Technology for water treatment solutions will continue to evolve, as will the oil and gas industry. The endless search for new sources of energy is taking exploration to newer, more challenging environments than ever before. As it does, it heightens the need for safety and efficiency in all of the systems that work together to bring a new well into production. It is important, therefore, for operators to source solutions that perform beyond their core function, be this for blowout or marine growth prevention. With so much on the line, energy leaders will be looking more and more to water science leaders like Evoqua, with their understanding of extreme environments and mission-critical applications, to help them get there. It is only then that the industry will truly benefit from the added value of increasing efficiency of operations and maximising the safety of staff and the environment.
