Grenland Delivers Minox Unit for Tahiti II Platform

Grenland Group is delivering a Minox unit to Chevron's-operated Tahiti platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

The unit will deoxygenate injected water to prevent corrosion in pipes and equipment, and to inhibit growth of bacteria in the oil reservoir. It will attach to the existing platform, and will treat 100,000 bopd.

The Minox unit is a two-stage company system and is Grenland Group's second delivery to Chevron. The Tahiti field commenced production in May 2009 in water depths of 3,998 feet (1,219 meters). Chevron is the operator and holds a 58% interest. Other partners include StatoilHydro (25%) and Total (17%).
