The PDO-Amal steam development project in South Oman is one of the largest browneld enhanced oil recovery development project.
Ion Exchange & Company LLC was selected as the EPC contractor against stiff 3 international competition for 9900 m /d steam injection package that required exclusive Ion Exchange technology for treating produced water. The produced water had oil, high total dissolved solids and hardness. The treated water after a unique oil removal system passes through two stages of speciality ion exchange resin columns complete with an automatic skid mounted brine dosing system to reduce hardness.
This treated water is used to produce steam for reinjection into heavy oil elds to boost the extraction rate of oil without scaling oil crevices. The project was successfully commissioned and continues to be operated and maintained by us along with several water treatment plants installed in the facility.
