Initially, the refinery was in need of an emergency supply of industrial quality water to support operations in the shortest time frame possible. Seven Seas Water continued to work with Hovensa (a joint venture between Hess Corporation and PDVSA) to address their reduced water needs during their sale and transition to Limetree Bay Terminal. Limetree Bay Refining, LLC subsequently requested Seven Seas Water to expand its water production to support the restart of the refinery operations.
Seven Seas Water initially delivered three mobile Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SRWO) units and one land Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BRWO) unit within 67 days. The production subsequently expanded to 1.675 MGD.

The island of Trinidad was threatened with severe drought conditions, resulting in dangerous brush fires, limited access to freshwater, and citizens rioting in the streets.
Seven Seas Water constructed a permanent facility to serve the community of Point Fortin and its neighbors to the south. This was the largest desalination project awarded in Trinidad in a decade, allowing WASA to provide 24/7 water supply to areas where previously were only receiving water one or two days per week.

WAPA was in need of a temporary supply of fresh water when its thermal desalination equipment sustained a catastrophic failure.
Seven Seas Water provided 2 MGD of quick-deployed reverse osmosis units within 30 days for the island of St. Thomas. This was provided during the peak of tourist season while the permanent, state-of-the-art reverse osmosis facility was being built to produce highly reliable quantities of water at a substantially lower cost to the thermal desalination.
