John Mills Valves in Triton Contract for GE Oil & Gas

(Press Release)
Friday, July 06, 2012

John Mills Valves, a subsidiary of Wärtsilä Valves Limited, has completed a contract for a bronze globe valve for GE Oil & Gas for the firefighting system handling seawater on the Triton FPSO facility, approximately 100 miles off the east coast of Scotland. 

GE Oil & Gas required a non-standard valve with alternative flanging and face to face dimensions with a quick delivery. With all crucial functions under the control of John Mills Valves they are able to provide flexibility, speed of response and competitive pricing which enabled the quick turnaround of the project.

Noel Barker, Operations Director at John Mills Valves in Newcastle upon Tyne added: “With our complete in-house facilities from pattern-making to casting, machining and valve assembly, we were able to work from design drawings to alter the valve pattern, manufacture the product and fully build and test the valve ready for dispatch within two weeks to ensure GE Oil & Gas supplied the valves to the offshore platform on time.
   
“John Mills Valves provided the solution in the timescale necessary and the support was second to none,” said Claire Pazdziorek, GE Oil & Gas Customer Focal Point for Pressure Control for the Triton FPSO Project in Aberdeen.

The Triton FPSO is used to process 105,000 barrels/day of tanker-stabilised crude oil, using three stages of separation with a dehydrator and a test separator for well testing.
