PJ Valves (PJV) has been awarded two significant FPSO valve contracts for projects in Brazil. The company will manufacture and supply valves packages to both projects in the Santos and Campos basins.
The Marlim 2 FPSO project will have the capacity to process up to 70,000 barrels of oil and 4 million cubic meters of natural gas per day. PJV will deliver a range of butterfly, ball, globe and check valves supplied in carbon stainless-steel, super duplex and Nickel aluminium bronze material. The valves will vary in sizes, with the maximum being 20 inches in diameter and maximum pressure class being 2500, to support the topside processing requirements of the vessel.
PJV has won further work for the Mero 2 FPSO, which will produce 180,000 barrels of oil per day. The company has been contracted to supply six packages of vales for different topside process including gas and water services. These will be installed within the 33,000-ton weight of the FPSO topsides. In this case, PJV worked closely with the customer on the operator requirements to meet project specifications and short lead times.
