Petrofac chooses Veolia to treat water from the Rabab Harweel site in the Sultanate of Oman

In May 2016, Veolia will provide the British company Petrofac with solutions to treat industrial water for the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP), an oil and gas site, which it manages on behalf of the national company Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) in the south of the country.

The RHIP oil and gas site includes collection and processing facilities as well as the associated injection systems, and export pipelines. Veolia, which will accompany the engineering of the project, will be responsible for industrial water treatment for these applications and will ensure the drinking water supply to the plant.


Vincent Baujat, Veolia Water Technologies Executive Vice-President for the Middle East, said: “Veolia has now become a trusted partner for the oil & gas industry in Oman, having also provided water treatment solutions to other National and International Oil Companies there. Veolia is very pleased to now be working with Petrofac, a globally respected EPC Contractor, bringing our international expertise and local Omani knowledge.”


Ray Richardson, Country Manager for Petrofac in Oman, said: “The Rabab Harweel Integrated Project is very important for Petrofac as it underpins our strategy to enhance service capability in Oman. Partnering with Veolia for water treatment is in line with our commitment to build local alliances and in doing so bring a strong and enduring team working longside PDO to deliver this project.”
