Under the contract, ProSep has agreed to provide crude desalting technology to reduce the need for dilution water and chemical injection.

ProSep president & CEO Jacques Drouin said ProSalt mixers reduces chemical injection rates and water conservation issues.

The company said desalting is a crucial step for crude oil refining processes since both the free water and emulsified water contain salt, which can cause corrosion, leading to failure of critical process equipment.

The ProSalt system’s in-line injection and mixing technology holds the key to effective salt content removal, efficient utilization of wash water and chemicals, and improved crude water separability.

Besides increased treatment capacity, the technology allows reduced wash water requirements, reduction in oil in water content, low installation costs and provides high returns on investment.

ProSep designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes technologies to separate oil, water and gas generated by oil and gas production.
