GASCO AGD II
About GASCO AGD II
The AGD-II Project was built to recover 6,400 TPD of NGL from the sour condensate rich gas from the existing Asab Gas Plant (AGP). Residue gas will be re-injected back into the reservoir for pressure maintenance purposes (gas cycling).
We supported this GASCO project during the construction phase by supplying a diverse range of project specific valves within extremely short time frames. PJ Valves worked closely with the on site procurement team, as well as the various global offices that were involved in the technical review process.
Over 35 orders were placed on our Fast Track system, with manufactured deliveries ranging from 2 to 6 weeks. The sour service of the medium meant that the customer was keen to obtain total technical compliance. We supplied high pressure ball, gate, globe and check valves, metal and soft seated and cryogenic service valves and top entry ball valves (including cryogenic top entry ball valves). Materials included F44 and Inconel. Valves were also supplied with Kalrez o-rings. All valves were supplied with 3.2 certification and were subject to project specific testing and certification.
Only one order was delivered outside our contractual delivery and this was supplied with a one day delay. There was a zero percent reject rate for all valves supplied. The project demonstrates how we work in partnership with a client to develop a highly effective working model that substantially reduced procurement time and therefore helped get critical process valves ordered and delivered extremely rapidly.
The lead engineer thanked us for providing bids which consumed a third of the engineering hours required to review competitor bids. We were commended for our excellent delivery performance and the "outstanding quality of the products supplied". A senior customer engineer also commented that "it was a pleasure working with PJ". This high quality reputation has led to a series of requests for support from the various global offices of the EPC contractor - including from projects in Angola and Thailand.
