PARIS -- Brazilian company QUIP has contracted Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies (VWS) for a water treatment package for the Papa Terra P63 project in the Campos basin offshore Brazil.

Petrobras nominated QUIP to manage supply and integration of the field’s FPSO.

Under the $39-million contract, Veolia Water’s offices in Scotland and Brazil will provide engineering services and project management.

The equipment, designed to treat seawater, will comprise pre-treatment and seawater sulfate removal (SSR) systems which also will strip other divalent ions from injection water to enhance oil recovery.

The plant will be capable of producing 54,054 cu m/d (1.9 MMcf/d) of treated water, which will be injected to pressurize the oil reservoir. Delivery is scheduled for 2012.

In 2009, Veolia Water also commissioned a similar package for QUIP for the P53 project in the Campos basin.
