Veolia has been awarded a contract by Ecopetrol America Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Ecopetrol S.A. (the national Colombian oil company), to provide equipment and services that will be used to treat the produced water from Ecopetrol S.A.’s Castilla oil fields in Colombia’s Llanos Basin, southeast of Bogota. Under this contract, Veolia will design and supply the equipment and material, supervise installation and commissioning, start-up, pre-operate and assist in the operations. The technologies implemented by Veolia were selected for their efficiency and robust design, intended for heavy duty remote areas where high reliability and low maintenance are required. Furthermore, their very low energy and chemical consumption will contribute to building environmentally sound water treatment facilities while enabling Ecopetrol S.A to continue its expansion of the Castilla site, thereby increasing production of oil.
