Petrobras signs Suez to supply offshore desalination

Suez has won a €6 million contract to supply desalinated water for 11 offshore oil rigs owned by Petrobras, Brazil’s majority state-owned oil company.

The contract is Suez’s first to supply offshore oil operations. The three-year deal covers supply, and operations and maintenance, for seven mobile reverse osmosis desalination units, with capacity of 90 m3/d.

“The Suez Brazil team developed an innovative mobile solution particularly well-suited to offshore drilling,” said Suez chief executive for Latam, Industrial Water Europe, and Industrial Solutions Global, Ana Giros Calpe.
