Honeywell's (HON -0.3%) subsidiary, UOP, has been selected by BW Offshore to remove contaminants from natural gas aboard a new floating production, storage and offloading vessel off the coast of Scotland.

UOP is continually innovating to create lightweight, compact, chemical-free equipment that is ideal for the complex offshore gas environment," says SVP Rebecca Liebert.

The vessel, will be leased to Premier Oil (OTCPK:PMOIY), and will include a UOP Separex Membrane System which cleans natural gas streams by removing carbon dioxide and water vapor.
