Comid - Saudi achieves VR stamp

Pan Gulf Valve Services (Valvserve) cross yet another mile stone in their quest to become one of Saudi Arabia’s top Valve Service and Repair Companies.

Formed in 2006 as a JV operation between Comid Engineering Ltd and Saudi Pan Gulf, PGV Valvserve has worked diligently to bring a quality Valve Service Centre to the Eastern Province. With its home in Jubail, the heart of industry for the Oil and Chemical Industries, it is ideally placed for fast response to cater for emergency breakdown and service work.

Investment in people, training and equipment has helped PGV Valvserve to reach its latest goal. The acquisition of Saudi Valve Manufacturing Establishment has greatly contributed to the company success. Saudi Valves (SVM) has over three decades of business in Saudi Arabia. It is one of a few Valve Manufacturers in the Kingdom with a core of experienced valve technicians from both manufacturing and service sectors.

April 2010 will be remembered for the achievement of the accreditation by National Board acknowledging PGV Valvserve as a VR accredited Safety Valve Repair and assembly service centre, the “VR Stamp” of approval.
This says to PGV Valvserve customers that not only do they have the skills, equipment and ability to carry out service and repair work to their safety relief valves they have gone the extra mile in having their quality system, working practices, service technicians and managers audited by the world’s leading body of safety valve inspectorates.
PGV Valvserve customers can be assured that their safety valves are being serviced, maintained, repaired and calibrated by a team of dedicated safety valve technicians.

The key to a quality service team lies within its people - investing in people has been a priority. Bringing skills from outside the Kingdom has played its part however so too has the training of our own local labour force. We are now seeing the benefits of this training within our organisation.
PGV Valvserve have had technicians trained and qualified to ASME standards by outside training authorities and also holds frequent in - house training sessions to ensure all its personnel involved in valve service work have the necessary skills to ensure safe return of any valve product.
Computer generated test reports are supplied to verify all pop and lift test results. Full records are held on hard and soft copy to help track and store information that can be easily retrieved to assist with repeat orders and traceability.
Accreditations also include ISO 9001:2008, Aramco Approved Valve Repair Centre, Broady UK Safety Valve Global Partner and approved Service Centre. Customers include the most prestigious within the Kingdom; Saudi Aramco, SABIC, SWCC, MARAFIQ, Saudi Chevron and Saudi Electric to name but a few.
Services at PGV Valvserve are not restricted to safety valves. The full complement of valve and valve related service work is carried out by PGV Valvserve. The overhaul and testing of gate, globe, check, ball, butterfly, pressure reducing and control valves all form part of our service disciplines. This together with our well equipped machine and fabrication shop puts us in an enviable position where we can be considered as a one stop shop for valves, fittings and valve service business.

PGV Valvserve in conjunction with workshop Safety Valve overhaul and calibration offer “In Situ” testing of safety valves using our Veritest System designed to verify a safety valves set pressure whilst the valve remains in service. i.e. under working conditions. The main benefit to the end user is that there is no need to shut down the plant or isolate the safety valve.

Our service team are available round the clock to deal with emergency and breakdowns and our service managers welcome the opportunity to demonstrate or expand our service capabilities.
