US-based ProSep has launched a 12-month industry technology facilitator (ITF) joint industry project (JIP) with Qatar Petroleum and Petroleum Development Oman.

The project, which started in December 2014, will see the three firms collaborate on an offshore capable unit for oil-in-water removal and media regeneration.

The project will be performed using ProSep’s Osorb Media-produced water treatment technology, which absorbs free, dispersed and water soluble hydrocarbons.

It also absorbs oilfield chemicals from produced water. ProSep will identify the performance of Osorb Media using capture and regeneration cycles on specific water streams.

"This project marks the first truly collaborative ITF-sponsored JIP between two national oil companies in the Middle East."

A commercial unit, to be commissioned for three months, will be brought into the target process for additional trialling in order to adapt the technology into the field.

ITF chief executive Patrick O’Brien said: "This project marks the first truly collaborative ITF-sponsored JIP between two national oil companies in the Middle East.
