Produced water treatment system

 JOGMEC has been collaboratively researching a system for treating produced water with PEMEX E&P of Mexico, since 2009, called FMS (Flocculation and Magnetic-Separation).
 The FMS technology removes oil and solids contained in produced water by using a magnetic f locculating agent. Once formed, oil- and solid-containing aggregates are separated from the water using a strong magnet. FMS equipment is compact, yet yields a rapid and high-quality process for treating produced water. In 2012, a demonstration test was conducted on an offshore platform in Mexico using FMS (treating capacity: 10,000b/ d) to treat produced water. The system was jointly developed by Hitachi Ltd. and JOGMEC. As an innovative and newly developed technology of Japan, FMS is attracting global attention.
