About Shell Bonga

First offshore deepwater project in Nigeria. The huge FPSO produces 225,000 barrels of oil per day.

Specification

Manual and actuated, all valve types. Most notable a requirement for some API 10k valves. We also supplied 8" top entry ball valves on a 10 week delivery.


Outcome

PJ Valves became involved with this project as it was nearing completion. However, many valves were still required and the FPSO needed them urgently to ensure production could start. We worked with our EPC customer to maintain a library of project standards and thereby reduce the customer technical review period dramatically.

PJ Valves supplied in excess of 50 orders, constantly responding to the pressing delivery needs of the project. Almost all delivery times were below 10 weeks with most valves being supplied either from stock or accelerated production.

Through our work on the Bonga FPSO, PJV have been approved for use on the upcoming Bonga SW Aparo.
