PJ Valves (PJV) has been awarded more than GBP 1m (USD 1.3m) worth of contracts to supply over 1,000 valves to Maersk Oil’s Culzean field in the UK North Sea.
PJV will manufacture forged cast gate globe and check valves in super duplex and super alloys for the well head, living and central processing platforms.
The company will also supply wafer check valves to prevent fluid backflow on these facilities.
The valve package is scheduled to be delivered in 2017.
Because of the success of the front-end scope, PJV has subsequently been awarded contracts for the compressor, metering and water treatment packages, the company informed.
The Culzean gas field is expected to reach a peak production rate of 400 to 500 million standard cubic feet per day, providing for around 5 per cent of the UK’s total gas consumption by 2020.
