PJ Valves (PJV), a specialist valves manufacturer and supplier, has secured three contracts to supply FPSO (floating, production, storage and offloading) valves for different projects in Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria.

The contracts have a combined value of $10 million.

In Brazil, the company will manufacture and supply valves to a project located in the Santos Basin. The contract involves the delivery of a range of globe and check valves made of carbon stainless-steel, duplex and Inconel clad material.

The valves will vary in sizes with the maximum being 18 inches in diameter to API 15000 in pressure class to support the topside processing requirements of the FPSO vessel. PJV will also provide onsite support from its Singapore office for the installation of the valves in China.

Under the second contract, PJV will supply a package of ball, double block and bleed valves and check valves to support topsides in Nigeria. In this case, PJV worked closely with the customer on raw material pre-ordering requirements to meet project specifications and short lead times.

Thirdly, PJV scooped a win in Mexico where it will deliver high pressure check valves to support the high-pressure requirements of the project.
