Houston-headquartered ProSep, the oil, gas and water treatment specialist, has been awarded a contract with PEMEX to supply its ProBlend™ mixer technology. The six-month project – awarded through ProSep’s in-country agent AGA Process, S.A de C.V – will see the company supply proprietary equipment to blend two crude process streams on-board a platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

ProBlend™ was developed to combine two crude process streams to meet a required density (API) or viscosity. Based on ProSep’s proprietary mixer technology ProMix™, ProBlend™ provides even pre-distribution of heavy or high viscosity oil into light or low viscosity oil. This blend of crudes is further mixed in ProSep’s modulating mixer design, creating a homogenous blend that is significantly easier to transport than heavy crude, and simpler to treat in dehydrating and desalting applications.

ProSep has a long-standing relationship with PEMEX, having delivered a number of successful projects for the operator since 2008. The application of ProBlend™ on-board the platform – ProSep’s fifth such project for PEMEX – will reduce consumption of the diluent or lighter density stream, generating significant OPEX savings by reducing the pumping power required to transport both the diluent and product streams. The technology will also generate CAPEX savings on the size and weight of downstream processes required for crude treatment.

“The longevity of our relationship with PEMEX is testament to our ability to deliver innovative yet reliable solutions to meet specific operational, regional or regulatory challenges,” comments Neil Poxon, Chief Executive Officer, ProSep. “PEMEX is leading the way for innovative technology adoption and we’re delighted to be continuing our relationship as we move forward with this project.”
