20.08.2007

Opus Plus Ltd has recently secured a contract, worth around £85,000, to supply a 9,000 BPD Mare’s Tail coalescer to Tanjung Offshore Services Sdn Bhd – acting on behalf of Murphy Sarawak Oil Co Ltd – for its West Patricia platform, offshore Malaysia.

The project aim is to enhance the performance of existing hydrocyclone water treatment technology, and thus the quality of produced water discharged without the need for deoiling chemicals.

Glen McLellan, Opus Plus Engineering Manager, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract following a visit to the Opus Test Facilities by Murphy Sarawak’s technical services manager.”

The project is now undergoing fabrication with the contract scheduled to be completed this autumn.

Opus Plus – which is based at Flotta, in Orkney – provides the offshore oil and gas market with a range of engineering and environmental services, including fluids characterisation and performance monitoring of offshore facilities, validation testing of process equipment and aquatic toxicity, biodegradation and bioaccumulation studies of offshore chemicals.
