Changes in the oil and gas sector such as the commercialisation of smaller, more remote resources has led to an increase in the requirement for more demanding applications. We work closely with process licensors and EPCs to produce products that protect the critical plant components.
Our products support the increasing need to access remote fields, the growth of Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) and Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG). Our valves enable extreme processes to operate safely with the utmost reliability in harsh environments – not only through the process on board, but also the powering and safety of the vessels.
Our patented IMI STI actuation gives industry leading response times, accuracy and repeatability. This results in LNG trains running optimally, giving operators maximum output. Our new range of compact quarter turn actuators are ideal for ball and butterfly valves when weight and space are at a premium.
We are the world leader in compressor anti-surge valves for LNG. We have also developed HIPPS to tackle the issue of pressure spikes and H2S (sour gas) that is present in older fields or more difficult fields just being developed. Leveraging a long history of experience we design control and hardware for the system which has been successfully supplied to onshore and offshore fields in the Middle East.
The LNG process relies on our best-in-class isolation valves – IMI Orton metal seated butterfly valves are used in the liquefaction plant in a number of applications including cooling systems, firefighting, and process valves.
