| Angola | Total | Topsides valve supply including valve engineering support

Project background

The Kaombo FPSOs operate in water depths of 1,400m to 2,000m, approximately 260km off the Angolan coast. The FPSOs are both ultra-deepwater and high capacity and therefore presented complex technical challenges. The produced gas is transported to the Angola LNG plant (another PJV reference).

Scope of supply

PJ Valves worked very closely with the water injection, SRU module fabricator and manufactured and supplied all the manual valves to these huge modules. These consisted of ball, gate, globe, butterfly, DBB valves in Ni Al Bronze, super duplex, stainless steel and PFA lined.

  • Trunnion mounted ball valves
  • Double block and bleed valves and single block and bleed valves
  • Floating ball valves
  • Gate, globe and check valves
  • Butterfly valves


We successfully proposed alternative valve types (approved by Total on other projects) that resulted in significant savings in terms of cost and complexity. The total cost savings amounted to approximately 40% of the customer’s overall valve spend.
