• Research and Development

    Since 2003, we have worked to increase and enhance oil recovery capabilities (IOR/EOR), by developing the Seabox™ subsea water treatment system. The first patent application was filed in 2003 for “Treatment of water”. Further development of the SWIT™ Technology has been a continuous process since 2003 until today.

    We launched a pilot test in 2009, with the aim of proving the fit for purpose of this technology. The pilot was completed in 2010, after 15 months of operation. The results were excellent, with the unit producing superior water quality compared to traditional topsides systems. The pilot proves that the SWIT™ Technology has the potential to become a game changing technology for IOR/EOR.

    Proving that the Seabox™ subsea water treatment unit works has enabled further technology development with regards to disinfecting seawater. The Seabox™ unit in combination with membrane technology can produce tailored water quality directly at seabed using surrounding water.
