The Buzios field FPSO is designed to process 225,000 b/d of oil and 12 MMcm/d of gas, with a water injection capacity of 250,000 b/d and storage for up to 1.4 MMbbl of crude.
PJV will provide various low- to high-pressure valves covering multiple topsides applications, from water services to oil and gas. These will be installed next year ahead of the planned delivery of the vessel in the second half of 2024.
The second award is for the Mero 3 FPSO, with a processing capacity of 180,000 b/d of oil and 12 MMcm/d of gas, also due to start up in 2024.
In this case PJV will supply shutdown, ball, globe and check valves in carbon stainless-steel, super duplex and nickel aluminum bronze material.
Maximum size will be 14-in. in diameter with a pressure class of up to 10,000 psi (689 bar), to support topsides processing requirements.
