What We Do

Planning and execution through integrated services

Produced water is delivered in cargos into strategically located reception facilities in handymax chemical tankers.

The sites allow the waste that has been known to contain:

  • hydrocarbons,
  • heavy metals such as Mercury
  • Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM)
  • hydrogen sulphide gas

to be safely discharged and disposed of with the whole projects managed by ASCO's dedicated Project management team.
