Milestone Delivery to Shell

BOG has delivered yet another set of 40-inch valves to the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC). Valves of this size and specification are used in special oil & gas applications to solve difficult control valve applications wherever increasing capacity and pressures are required. They require detailed engineering design with lengthy production lead time. The production lead time of 4 by 40-inch top-entry actuated ball valves was 42 weeks with each valve weighing a whopping 32 tonnes. The valves were delivered in May 2019.

Circor Energy, parent company to Pibiviesse (manufacturers of the valves), is a market-leading, global provider of integrated flow control solutions, specializing in highly engineered valves and pipeline products and services. The valves were manufactured in the company’s plant located in Nerviano, north-west Milan, Italy. Circor Energy continuously develops highly engineered valve and pipeline products that improve the ability to control the flow of oil and gas and other natural resources – from subsea to land, and in severe environments.

A valve is a device that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid (gases, liquids, fluidized solids, or slurries) by opening, closing, or partially obstructing passageways. Hence, the importance of having high-quality valves, such as those supplied by BOG cannot be overemphasized. SPDC uses valves to regulate and control the flow of gases and other liquids in its daily operations.

Above and below: 40-inch Circor valves delivered to the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
