TotalEnergies EP Uganda (TEPU) – a subsidiary of TotalEnergies SE together with Joint Venture partners CNOOC Uganda Ltd and Uganda National Oil Company (UNOC), will develop the Tilenga Project in the Lake Albert region of Uganda. McDermott, the EPC contractor of this massive project, awarded Cannon Artes the contract to provide water treatment solutions to cover almost the complete needs of the plant.
Tilenga is one of Uganda’s 2 pioneer Oil & Gas projects with a focus on the sustainable development of the project and consequently achieving shared prosperity for all. Using the best-in-class technology and expertise during development, a significant aspect of this project will be dedicated to knowledge transfer for the local people so as to establish solid engineering expertise.
Our team will be involved in almost all areas of water treatment that cover the complete water needs of the plant, supplying four packages. Water injection is the largest package of filtered and deaerated water from the lake using multimedia filters with (high filtration efficiency) and vacuum deaeration.
Smaller packages include effluent treatment (sewage effluent, civil wastewater from the camp, open-drain water), demineralized water for process needs, and potable water for human consumption.
We will also provide a sand treatment package for solid residues from produced water, taking the dirty fluid, removing the solids, recovering the water, and sending it back to the PWT system.
As part of our commitment to developing local resources, we will conduct 40 man-hours of training to 20 local engineers for each of the supplied sub-packages, a total of 80 engineers will be trained.
Since November 2022, our team has participated in the detailed engineering phase of the project and early procurement phase, with manufacturing starting in the first half of 2023. The estimated final delivery of our complete package is Q2, 2023.
