Indian valves for offshore projects

Indian valves for offshore projects FEATURED STORY

MAGWEN recently shipped various non-slam nozzle check valves, intended for hydrocarbon applications in South-East Asia.

Asked about the order, MAGWEN’s Managing Director Mr Bhowmick Shah said there were in fact two separate contracts. Both were from the same contractor but for different end users. One shipment was intended for an FPSO and the other for offshore production platforms in South-East Asia.

Giving specifics, Mr Shah noted that the orders were for non-slam nozzle check valves for hydrocarbon application on lines ranging from 4” bore up to 10” bore. The valves were rated at #150 up to #900 and they are all metal to metal sealed with high quality hardfacing. The #900 valves were made from super duplex steel in order to enable sour gas service which also confirms their top-quality.

Mr. Shah is proud to say the company have once again proven their capability for taking on new challenges. “For example, the #900 valves were gas tested from 20 to 160 bar, metal to metal seat with zero leakage. But I believe the most important criteria in the client´s decision to choose these valves was the fact that the fast action nozzle check valve comes with anti-surge properties.”

As stated by Mr Shah, these orders may not have been large but will surely prove to be significant in the future and provide more opportunities to work with old and new contractors in South-East Asia, especially when it comes to offshore application in the upstream segment of the oil & gas industry. “MAGWEN can proudly say that we have once again confirmed our slogan “Born in Germany, proudly made in India” seeing as these valves were completely made in India from design to delivery,” concluded Mr Shah.
