The higher demand for hydrocarbons is pushing us further into a tough environment. New high-tech rigs / FPSOs are developed to cope with these new challenges. Our contribution is to help you protect our fragile environment and to maintain the “zero discharge” philosophy.
GEA has a complete environmental system which reduces the discharge to sea to a minimum. A high efficiency slop treatment system will also have economic benefits as the costs for ship to shore and subsequent treatment are no longer required. The treatment of slop is always a challenge as the slop tanks contain everything from drain and slop water, oil spills, brine, bentonite, barite, cement, mud etc. This results in a variable oil and solids content. To solve this challenge GEA has developed a complete system using the full capacity of both the decanter and centrifugal technology.
