Expansion for Oman's flagship industrial constructed wetland - The Source

A third phase is just being completed at the Nimr Water Treatment Plant in Oman, expanding what is already the largest industrial constructed wetland facility in the world.

The plant provides an alternative solution to the issue of produced water management from the Nimr oilfields in the southern Oman desert. Widely acknowledged as one of the most innovative environmentally friendly treatment plants in the international oil and gas sector, the latest phase will increase its treatment capacity by 50%.

The Nimr Water Treatment Plant (NWTP) is designed, built, owned and operated by the German company Bauer Resources GmbH and its subsidiary in Oman, Bauer Nimr LLC. The latest phase is taking the treatment capacity to 175,000 m³/day, and is adding 1.2 million m² of constructed wetlands to the existing 3.6 million m². The current plant also features a series of evaporation ponds with a total area of 5 million m², fed by the treated effluent, free of oil hydrocarbons, resulting in salt formation, which can be processed into industrial grade salt as an end product.
