MONTREAL, Nov. 26, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by Qatargas for a Water Recycling Facility at its Laffan Refinery 2 plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar. SNC-Lavalin is providing engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning services for the Recycling Facility to handle treated industrial water from the Laffan Refineries 1 and 2. The contract is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
The recycling system is designed to reuse treated industrial water produced by the industrial plants. The system mainly consists of ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis with ancillary facilities. Purified water will be recycled back to the refineries for use in the cooling and boiler feed water systems.
"We are delighted to play a key role in delivering this sustainable project, which contributes to Qatargas meeting its environmental commitments, and bringing the system safely into operation," said Christian Brown, President, Oil & Gas. "We have been working with Qatargas for 12 years and look forward to continuing our successful relationship."
When completed, the Laffan Refinery 2 will process an additional 146 thousand barrels per day of condensate recovered from the North Field, doubling the capacity of Laffan Refinery 1.
With operations in Qatar since 1997, SNC-Lavalin has worked on some of the largest projects in the country, including the Pearl GTL complex and multiple projects for Qatargas and Qatar Petroleum.
