Veolia Water, Petrobras sign contract to handle material processing unit

BY MELANIE CRUTHIRDS, News Editor

CHICAGO -- Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Brazil and Veolia Water Americas signed a contract with Petrobras to design, build, own and operate an oil-bearing secondary material processing unit at its Alberto Pasqualini REFAP Refinery in Porto Alegre, South Brazil. It is the sixth-largest of Petrobras' refineries, with a capacity of 200,000 bopd. The new unit will use Veolia' s proprietary processes to recycle the oil-bearing material back into the refining production processes, which is anticipated to result in approximately $1.5 million in annual cost savings.

The recycled oil-bearing materials from the refinery' s crude processing streams will be used in the refinery' s coker unit.

The parts and equipment for the new unit are being manufactured both in the U.S. and Brazil. The processing unit is expected to begin operations in November 2013. Once fully operational, the unit is anticipated to process approximately 6,200 bbl of oil-bearing material each month, more than 74,000 bbl per year.
