MONTREAL—SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a contract to build a water recycling facility at Qatargas’ Laffan Refinery 2.

Under the contract, SNC will provide the engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning services for the wastewater plant that will treat industrial water from the Laffan Refineries 1 and 2 in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.

“We are delighted to play a key role in delivering this sustainable project, which contributes to Qatargas meeting its environmental commitments, and bringing the system safely into operation,” Christian Brown, president of Oil & Gas at SNC, said. “We have been working with Qatargas for 12 years and look forward to continuing our successful relationship.”

The recycling system is designed to reuse treated industrial water produced by the industrial plants. SNC said the design mainly consists of ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis with ancillary facilities.


The Montreal-based company did not disclose the financial details of the contract, but said it expects to complete the work in the first quarter of 2017.
