TechnipFMC said it was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract for a sulfate reduction plant on Abu Dhabi’s West Island by Zakum Development Company (ZADCO).

The project will include the installation of a sulfate reduction plant module (SRP) along with new installations and tie-in to existing facilities in West Island, TechnipFMC said in a statement.

The SRP module incorporates cutting edge water treatment technologies with advanced filtration and nano-filtration systems. These systems are used for water injection into Upper Zakum western areas reservoir tight structure, which requires high quality water with less sulfate content and particle size.

Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s onshore and offshore business, said, “We are extremely proud of this award which demonstrates our long standing commitment to ADNOC as well as our sustainable development strategy in line with the UAE vision to maximize national content. This EPC award is one of the strategic “early engagement” achievement, following the successful completion by TechnipFMC of the Concept and FEED studies for the full UZFD (Upper Zakum Field Development) project, including the SRP.”
