Non-commodity Valves for FPSOs: How to Save Time and Money

As an engineer or buyer in the booming market of FPSOs, you might have been involved in one of the seven biggest worldwide FPSO projects knowing:

  1. Greater Tortue-Ahmeyim Phase 1 – Mauritania/Senegal
  2. Guanabara FPSO, Mero Oil & Gas Field Pilot Project – Brazil
  3. Sepetiba FPSO, Mero Oil & Gas Field Phase 2 – Brazil
  4. Carioca FPSO, Sepia Oil Field – Brazil
  5. P-71 FPSO, Lula Oeste Field Development – Brazil
  6. Kudu Gas Field – Namibia
  7. Liza Prosperity FPSO, Payara Oil Field – Guyana

FPSOs require all kinds of high-quality valves, with pressure classes of up to 4,500 lbs and in different sizes and different body materials, like Carbon and Low-Alloy Steel, Austenitic and (Super) Duplex Stainless Steels, Nickel-Aluminum-Bronze and Titanium. The time schedule to build an FPSO is always critical.
