M Vest Water advances in Middle East Oil & Gas Produced Water Treatment market


M Vest Water announces that, by invitation from a major operating and oil-producing company, it has successfully conducted the first step qualification of NORWAFLOC® for Oil & Gas Produced Water Treatment at two sites in the Middle East (ME).

At first site, MVW replaced synthetic produced water treatment chemicals with completely natural and biodegradable NORWAFLOC® by using only half as much product volumes compared to the currently used synthetic product, achieving significantly better treatment results.

The next planned step is full-scale qualification at the field, treating several hundred thousand m3/day at one of the largest produced water field flows in the world.

At the second site, MVW also successfully conducted the first stage test with NORWAFLOC® for the same operator. This was at a large oil terminal.

Upon invitation to this project, MVW now plans for piloting NORWAPOL® and NORWAFLOC® prior to offering the client a permanent solution comprising both equipment and chemical solution.

“Today, MVW is actively involved in 6 projects for Produced Water Treatment in the Middle East. The successful NORWAFLOC® test at one of the globally largest produced water fields is a milestone and a breakthrough for MVW in this region. It is noted that the ME operators highly value GREEN and sustainable solutions and support our vision to replace synthetic polymers with a better alternative. Aside of the US, the ME is the most attractive market for MVW due to the very large volumes of produced water, and subsequent sound water management is one of the critical parameters for optimized O&G production in the ME,” comments MVW’s CEO Stein Giljarhus.
