PJ Valves (PJV) and PJ Piping (PJP) have been awarded a major contract by McDermott to supply valves and piping elements for an offshore project in Trinidad and Tobago.
The gas field will feature an unmanned platform and is situated 60 kilometres off Trinidad and Tobago’s south-east coast in water depths of 65 metres. The project is slated for first oil in 2019.
PJV and PJP will manufacture more than 500 specialty ball, gate and double block and bleed valves, and compact flanges from their facilities in Italy and India. All valves will be metal-seated to ensure durability against the gas field’s abrasive conditions.
Spencer Linsell, sales director at PJV, says: “This contract is testament to the hard work and technical expertise of both our valve and piping teams. Valves and piping components can seem like a small decision in relation to large offshore projects, but making the right choice can have a substantial impact on the bottom line.
“Our approach of challenging project specifications using our extensive industry knowledge means we can ensure clients have a bespoke, cost-effective solution that doesn’t compromise on quality.”
PJ Group launched PJP in 2016 and this contract is said to be the largest combined order for both the valve and piping divisions to date. Currently in production, the valve and piping package is scheduled for delivery in August 2017.
