ProSep awarded $3M Malaysia contract

Will supply seawater treatment technology for offshore oil.


MONTREAL — ProSep Inc. was awarded a contract for the supply of a seawater treatment package to Malaysia worth more than $3 million.

The Montreal-based process solutions provider for the upstream oil and gas industry said the equipment will be delivered during the first half of 2014 and installed offshore from Malaysia.

The water treatment equipment injects water into an oil reservoir, usually to increase or maintain reservoir pressure, but it also sweeps or displaces oil from the reservoir, and pushes it toward the production well.

ProSep’s seawater package consists of multimedia backwashable fine filters used to reduce suspended solids in the water. The vessels are packed with various layers of media, providing 100% removal of particles sized 10 microns and larger, and of fine sediments.

“This is a significant award for our team in Malaysia and a testament to the growing relationships we are developing in the region,” said president and CEO said Jacques Drouin.
