PJV banks $11M of FPSO contracts in Brazil





Hertford, UK 23rd November 2021: PJ Valves (PJV), the specialist manufacturer and supplier of valves for the global energy industry, has been awarded two significant FPSO valve contracts for projects in Brazil – one of which is planned to be one of the largest oil producing units in the world. The company will manufacture and supply valve packages to both projects in the Santos and Campos basins.

The FPSO, destined for the Buzios field, is set to be the largest oil producing unit operating offshore Brazil and one of the largest in the world, with daily processing capacity of 225,000b of oil and 12Mm3 of gas. It will have a water injection capacity of 250,000b/d and a minimum storage capacity of 1.4Mb of crude oil. PJV will supply low to high pressure valves which cover multiple topside applications from water services to oil and gas. These will be installed within the vessel’s topsides from next year ahead of planned delivery of the FPSO in the second half of 2024.

The second win is for the Mero 3 FPSO project which is expected to have a processing capacity of 180,000 b/d of oil and 12 MMcm/d of gas, with production planned for 2024. PJV will deliver a range of shutdown, ball, globe and check valves supplied in carbon stainless-steel, super duplex and nickel aluminium bronze material. The valves will vary in sizes, with the maximum being 14 inches in diameter and pressure class being 10,000 psi, to support the topside processing requirements of the vessel.

James Moir, Group Sales Director, PJV, says: “Brazil lends itself as the perfect location for FPSO projects due to its water depths, and with the resurgence of the oil price we’ve seen it thrive! Over the past five years we’ve supplied and manufactured valves to over 25 FPSOs. Our teams ability to work closely with our customers on engineering aspects every step of the way – making their vision become reality has been a major factor in our success. On the Mero 3 FPSO there isn’t a place you can go where you won’t be near one of our valves and that’s a fantastic thing to say!”

Both contracts were won through competitive tenders. PJV’s approach of intimately knowing the specifications and project technical expertise allows them  to challenge client specifications to drive through innovative and significant cost saving benefits in a highly competitive market.

Reframing the debate: why we should be talking about how to improve exploration and production

The oil and gas sector is very unfashionable at the moment. Environmental concerns and the rise of renewables combined, mean that the industry feels pretty friendless right now.

A call for true partnership: moving the customer-supplier relationship beyond a zero-sum game

If a word is overused enough, it begins to lose a sense of its original meaning. Think of the word ‘awesome’, casually deployed for anything slightly positive. Over time, a once-grand word has lost its connection with the idea of awe.
