Oliver Valves Ltd wins major FPSO contract

Back in 2020 a contract was awarded for the charter, operations and maintenance of the Marlim 2 FPSO which is destined for the Marlim Field in the Campos Basin, Brazil. The client, who is based in Bergen, Norway, received the contract for 7 modules covering Gas Treatment, Gas Compression, Utilities and Flare Systems for the FPSO - often called Anna Nery.

Prior to this contract being awarded OLIVER VALVES LTD had been working closely with the client, providing technical support and costing for the Instrumentation valves and DBB's, as well as Process DBB’s for the Compressor and GTU Modules. After a long process of technical and commercial discussions Oliver Valves received Purchase Orders for the 2 packages.

The client chose Oliver Valves Ltd and Oliver Twinsafe Valves Ltd for their instrument isolation, chemical injection (with integral check valves and injection probes) and main pipeline isolation valves in carbon steel, stainless steel and Duplex materials suitable for low temperature applications.

The package initially comprised of a total of 528 valves in sizes from ½" to 4" ASME Class 150 to 1500, split across the Oliver Valves and Oliver Twinsafe product lines. On award of the contract on the 4th September 2020 Oliver Valves were praised for the “swift and professional way that they  handled the project through the quote stage” by  the clients Project Management team.

Since the initial Purchase order placement the scope of supply has significantly increased to approximately 600 valves, with the addition of a range of valves including 6” class 1500 Double Block and Bleed Valves and 2” class 150 Single Isolation Valves.

Production is well under way and in recent weeks 50% of these valves were dispatched on time with the remaining 50% due to be shipped over the coming weeks in line with the Clients installation programme.

The Anna Nery FPSO will be able to produce 70,000 barrels of oil and 4 million cubic metres of gas per day. The production start-up is scheduled for 2023, and is located 150km (93 miles) offshore Brazil in a water depth about 930 m (3,051ft).
