LNG Industry,

Weir Flow Control France has been awarded a contract by Yamgaz to engineer and supply critical service safety valves for the Yamal LNG Project in Russia.

Yamgaz is a joint venture (JV) led by TechnipFMC with JGC and Chiyoda. The Yamal LNG Project is located on the estuary of the River Ob within the Yamal Peninsula, Russia, and will provide energy for Europe and Asia.

A total of 638 highly specialised fast-track safety valves were supplied for the project, 185 of which were superfast-track deliveries to meet critical installation and start-up schedules.

The Sales & Marketing Director for Weir Flow Control France, Ali Atmani, said: “This contract award is indicative of the outstanding valve performance which our engineers can deliver in partnership with major customers such as Yamgaz. We have a strong track record for delivering highly engineered solutions for worldwide projects. We are ideally placed to collaborate on complex specifications and to continually innovate upon our product offering, especially in critical and super-critical applications within the oil and gas markets where demanding environments, high pressures, and extensive temperature differentials are involved.”

The Site Director for Weir Control France, Ludovic Goncalves, added: “These ‘super-fast-track’ valves were supplied within a 22 weeks’ turnaround period which is a record for this type of product within the LNG industry.”

The General Manager for Weir Flow Control France, Yannick Madiot, said: “By continued investment in our Engineering Centre of Excellence, our dedicated team leads the market for engineering, manufacture, testing and servicing of cryogenic installations. We understand the unique technical requirements which LNG customers have for sub-zero ambient temperatures and other challenging operational conditions. We have worked very closely with Yamgaz to deliver this project successfully.”
