ProAnalsis Wins First Middle East Contract for Argus OiW Monitors

The contractor Black Cat in Qatar has placed an order with ProAnalysis AS for two Argus® Oil in Water (OiW) monitors to be installed at Qatar Petroleum's Dukhan field west of Doha. The contract represents ProAnalysis' first order from the Middle East.

"Our efforts to get into the large Middle East market are now yielding results," said Gunnar Alfheim, Managing Director of ProAnalysis. "Produced water is a universal challenge, especially for mature areas and fields, and we are proud to have a measurement solution providing operators with the tool to handle this issue. The combination of our in-line probe design measuring OiW directly in the process, and our ultrasound-based automated cleaning of the probe, is a winning formula which customers in every region have found convincing."

Argus® is a technology for on-line Oil in Water monitoring developed by ProAnalysis, for application in water treatment process monitoring and discharge monitoring in the oil & gas industry. The technology is built on UV fluorescence - a robust and stable measurement principle. In addition, the unique in-line probe design with ultrasound-based self-cleaning facilitates low maintenance and minimum life-cycle costs.
