Kaombo

| 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

Outcome

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.

Scope change support

We developed and implemented an improved documentation process

Relevant products

Mooring applications call for a diverse range of products with common features in specification and configuration.

High pressures, metal seating and corrosion resistant alloy materials are typical requirements.

Three ways for suppliers to positively support the oil and gas industry through transition

By Dan Munro, Owner of PJ Valves We can do this. We can help the oil and gas industry respond to current pressures by emerging as more efficient and less environmentally damaging. There is going to be blood on the carpet during the next few months and years – but there will also be clear winners. Winners who embrace the opportunity of change, and supply chains that support their customers to deliver this change.
