TenCate Polyfelt® TS Geotextile Separator on Arabian Seafloor - Jamnagar Gujarat, India

Jamnagar refinery is a crude oil refinery located at North West of India with production capacity of 661,000 barrels per day. As the expansion to double its production capacity to 1.2 million barrels per day will generate huge volumes of wastewater during the process of crude oil extraction, it was proposed to dispose the treated wastewater through the pipelines laid on the seafloor to avoid contamination of the environment surrounding the refinery. Five 1.4m diameter and two and a half kilometers pipes were laid in a 70.5m wide x 3.5m deep pre-dredged trench on the seafloor.
