SPRINGS - Subsea seawater treatment for injection

A sulphate removal system to avoid deposits and reservoir souring

Benefits of the technology

•   Simplify pre-treatment by using water from the depths which is better quality
•   Reduce modifications required on FPSO (brownfield)

  • The injection network minimized or suppressed
  • Particularly attractive for satellite fields by making it possible to inject water where no solution is technically or financially viable
