Veolia’s MPPE unit will be used to treat the gas/condensate produced water stream on the Ichthys LNG Project’s floating production storage and offloading facility (FPSO), an initiative of oil and gas company INPEX. The unit will remove dissolved and dispersed toxic constituents like aromatic (BTEX), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and oil, resulting in zero harmful discharge to the environment.

The Ichthys LNG Project will involve offshore preliminary processing of gas from the Ichthys Field to remove water and extract condensate before being transported to onshore LNG processing facilities in Darwin via an 890 km pipeline. Most condensate will be sent to an in-field FPSO, from which it will be shipped to market. The project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

During the production of gas and condensate, formation and dehydration water is co-produced containing toxic dissolved and dispersed aromatics, aliphatics and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. MPPE technology is able to remove all of these toxic compounds securely and in a single process to comply with the strictest requirements for zero harmful discharge. Two fully automated MPPE units are delivered in one module.

The MPPE unit was designed and built following high offshore standards and is designed for an operational lifetime of 40 years.

“We are very proud to deliver this high-tech water treatment system to help INPEX achieve their ambitious goals,” said Erik Middelhoek, managing director of Veolia MPP Systems. “It was a challenging project with a fantastic end result.”
