FCx Thompson Valves has won a contract to supply its advanced Maxseal and IVP products for Conoco’s Belanak floating production, storage and off-loading facility. Conoco has invested USD 1.6 billion in the development of the new Belanak natural gas Indonesian offshore field, located approximately 200km from Singapore. The floating facility, a 1000-foot vessel, will have the capacity to store up to one million barrels of oil, which can be off-loaded to tankers for transportation. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2004. FCx Thompson Valves will supply its Maxseal instrument changeover solenoid valves. These products are manufactured in stainless steel and provide a number of benefits such as lower power consumption, pressure options up to 207bar and actuation options including auto reset, lever manual override, lever manual reset and a tamper proof function. In addition, Thompson also secured a major package to supply a range of their Maxseal – IVP Dome loaded high-pressure regulators. The 1″ and 3″ products are manufactured in stainless steel and are designed to ASME class B16.34.
