Tedagua to construct extension of the produced water treatment system at Malvinas gas processing plant
Project, has chosen Tedagua for the design and construction of the extension and upgrading of the produced water treatment system at the Malvinas Plant. The project has a budget of $10.2 million (around €9.6 million). The facility is located in Malvinas (Department of Cusco), alongside the Urubamba River, 500 Km east of Lima in the heart the Peruvian Amazon region.
The current produced water treatment system at the Malvinas plant will be modified in order to: increase water storage capacity and hydrocarbons recovery, interconnect existing drainage systems, minimise oxygen ingress by means of a system totally sealed off to the atmosphere and inertised with a new source of nitrogen. The aim is to ensure a uniform process flow, enhancing the quality of the water sent to the injection wells in order to prolong the lifecycle of the wells and reduce backpressure.
The project is structured in two stages. In the first stage, existing equipment at the plant will be upgraded and produced water storage capacity will be increased through the addition of a new detention tank. In the second stage, produced water treatment capacity will be increased and new sludge treatment and chemical dosing systems will be installed.
Tedagua achieves this new contract in Peru, where has an ongoing successful track record, including contracts like the current operation of Taboada waste water treatment plant, in Lima, or the design and construction of the PROVISUR (Provisión de Servicios de Saneamiento para los Distritos del Sur) facilities to provide water solutions for a 25,000 inhabitant population, also in Lima.
