Veolia to build wastewater treatment plant for natural gas production site

Veolia has just been chosen by Qatar Engineering & Construction Company to design and deliver - between now and 2017 - a wastewater treatment plant at Dolphin Energy's natural gas production and processing facilities in Ras Laffan, in Qatar.

The treated water from the plant will be directly reused in the industrial process. This will not only prolong the life of the equipment by reducing the volume of wastewater currently reinjected without being treated into the refinery’s wells, but will also limit the amount of desalinated water that has to be acquired from external sources.
