Nubian Engineering offers industry specific water treatment solutions which offer modularity and flexibility of design. These solutions can cater for hard to treat water for both residential and industrial purposes. Our engineered solutions can provide water quality of the highest purity meeting WHO Standards for Potable drinking water

Nubian offers a wide range of solutions that the processes involved in treating water for drinking purposes to provide a safe source of water supply may include solids separation using physical processes such as settling and filtration, and chemical processes such as disinfection and coagulation. Water purification is the removal of contaminants from untreated water to produce drinking water that is pure enough for the most critical of its intended uses, usually for human consumption. Substances that are removed during the process of drinking water treatment include suspended solids, bacteria, algae, viruses, fungi, minerals such as iron, manganese and sulphur, and other chemical pollutants such as fertilizers. World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines are generally followed throughout the world for drinking water quality requirements. In addition to the WHO guidelines, each country or territory or water supply body can have their own guidelines in order for consumers to have access to safe drinking water.

Nubian Energy is also focused on developing innovative and specialized solutions incorporating fuel cell technology. A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through an electrochemical reaction of hydrogen fuel with oxygen or another oxidising agent.

Nubian Energy is developing a wide range of power generation products using proprietary technology developed by our OEM partners that will focus on offering innovative and cost-effective solutions to our clients whether it is a residential, commercial or industrial application.

The approach we have used is to incorporate a natural gas reformer unit to produce hydrogen for the fuel cell power plants and this idea is based on the abundant gas reserves that abound in Nigeria. The Nubian Engineering Power plants are quiet and highly efficient with the added effect of producing an extremely minimal carbon foot print.


Nubian Engineering is developing several exciting applications and services in conjunction with our partners and OEM providers that are specifically developed for the Oil and Gas Industry. These solutions are focused on the optimization and measurement systems:


    The SIOP is a production optimization methodology which is targeted at wells with a high BS&W (water-cut %) – The SIOP has the effect of reducing water cut. The end results are a higher throughput of hydrocarbons and a reduction produced water with the corresponding effect of a reduction in asset management costs due to savings in produced water treatment and handling.
    The SIOP entails the measurement and optimization of the wells characteristic flow profiles, seeking through the installation of different equipment on the surface inclusive of the installation of an annular pressurization unit, seeks to generate a pulsing and harmonic effect on the capillary pressure around the well. This has the effect of increasing the production of hydrocarbons through the phenomenon of hysteresis with positive effects on the drainage of oil and imbibition of water, affecting very positively the mobility of the oil and controlling the Invasion of the water front. The SIOP tool is based on the use of a pressure controller system that is run with controller that is managed by specialized software.
    The complexity of multiphase flow requires high technology solutions to solve the problems encountered in different profiles that are present presents during oil field production. Nubian Engineering OEM partners have developed a unique Multi phase metering system that combines versatility with unique design. The MFM is a patented multiphase flow meter developed in Venezuela, whose technology is based on an Axial Flow Conditioner (AFLOCS). This system is a lightweight and low maintenance vortex generator capable of operating efficiently and reliably with light, medium and extra heavy oil.
    Because the AFLOCS technologic, MFM is not affected by flow patterns and utilizes high precision primary measurement technologies, which converts it into a measuring reference for multiphase flow equipment. The MFM is composed by technology for, flows conditioner, liquid flow measuring, gas flow measuring, in-line gas entrapped measuring, water cut analyzer, and a viscometer. A PID control system is also incorporated to optimize the measurement of multiphase fluids that are found under different oil flied conditions.Models Our models are classified according to the oil type, flow range and fixed or portable configuration.

    The MPFM is mounted on a skid, with all its respective input and output connections, dimensioned according to the process conditions, and manufactured in compliance with the manufacturing and design standards of the oil industry. It has weatherproof and extreme weather protection.

    “Produced water” is the generic industry term for any water that is “produced “from an oil or gas reservoir as part of the crude oil/gas production process. Reservoirs often contain large volumes of water, which due to regulatory oversight and best practice must be treated prior to disposal in accordance to acceptable standards.
    It is pertinent to note that produced water contains contaminants that require removal before proper disposal or reuse. Some of the contaminants likely to be found in produced water include: oil, naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM), waxes, greases, sand, scales, dissolved salts, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H2S (hydrogen sulfide) gases, hydrocarbons, production chemicals, and various metals.
    Nubian Engineering offers treatment systems for Produced Water that are designed to ensure that your produced water treatment meets the most stringent national standards and ensures the most minimal impact to your environment. Nubian Engineering offers several systems based on Filtration, cyclonic separation, flotation, and bio- remediation. We are currently working with several OEMS in offering systems that rank amongst the best in class.
