Veolia will contribute to the development of the Khazzan gas field, located 350 kilometres southwest of Muscat and one of BP’s largest current projects. The plant will start providing water from January 2015,

“In some regions of the world, it is no longer possible to submit a development project for an oil or gas field without including the water aspect,” said Antoine Frérot, Veolia’s chairman and CEO. “There is therefore strong growth potential in this sector, especially for water treatment installations.”

The circa USD 50m water treatment facility has a maximum capacity of 6,000 cubic metres a day, split between 4,000 cubic metres a day of process water and 2,000 cubic metres a day of drinking water. Veolia will operate the plant for one year, with extension options of up to four additional years.

Water production is an essential step in implementing this project, which is highly significant for the Omani economy, and which is planned to comprise up to 300 gas wells to deliver, in 2017, plateau production of 28.3 million cubic metres of gas per day.
