“After an extensive evaluation process, it is extremely rewarding to be recognised as a leading technology provider and preferred supplier of innovative produced water treatment equipment with the highest QHSE standards. OMS possesses many benefits including a remarkably low-system footprint, durability of media, and greater flexibility of regeneration and we are thrilled to see it at work on this recent project and to be considered as a trusted partner in such a technologically as well as environmentally demanding project,” said Product Line Manager for ProSep, Caleb Smathers.
