MODEC selects SUEZ for Brazilian FPSO project

MODEC Offshore Production Systems has awarded a multi-million dollar contract to SUEZ’s Water Technologies & Solutions for the supply of seawater sulphate removal technology.

MODEC is constructing a new floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel on behalf of Equinor Norway, the operator of the Bacalhau oil field, and will use SUEZ ultrafiltration and nanofiltration membranes to reduce seawater sulphate levels to required levels.

The contract includes equipment supply, engineering, project management, procurement and construction supervision. Production capacity of the FPSO is 220,000 bbl/day of oil and 15,000,000 m3/day of gas.

“It is a great vote of confidence to have MODEC select SUEZ technology for this project and we look forward to continuing to be a strong partner,” said Kevin Cassidy, executive vice president, engineered systems for SUEZ – Water Technologies & Solutions. “With our expertise and capability, we have the global reach that MODEC has come to rely on and we are proud to be considered a preferred supplier on these essential projects.”

This marks the second contract with MODEC in the space of six months and is the fifth contract between SUEZ and MODEC in this area.
