AMPO POYAM valves for liquefaction train

Cheniere and Bechtel have approached AMPO POYAM VALVES for the design and manufacture of more than 1750 valves for Corpus Christi Liquefaction Train 3, which consists of the addition of one liquefaction train to the already existing 2 trains and one additional tank as well as a second berth. The Train 3 would increase the expected aggregate nominal LNG production capacity at the Liquefaction Project to approximately 13.5 mtpa.

The Train 3 is expected to be commissioned in 2020 and AMPO POYAM VALVES is supplying the valves, such as manual cryogenic ball valves, cryogenic globe and check valves, as well as actuated cryogenic and non-cryogenic ball valves and metal seated valves. The valves’ sizes range up to 42” and the pressure range is varying from 150 to 900 lbs. These valves are known to reduce the pressure drop in the line and consequently, smaller equipment may be used.

AMPO POYAM VALVES has since 2012 supplied more than 4,000 valves for the first two trains of Cheniere’s Corpus Christi LNG project, and a series of valves for trains 1 to 5 of the Sabine Pass LNG liquefaction project. Some of them, 36” and 42” HIPPS valves, achieved a perfect isolation in less than 2 seconds. This order also included cryogenic, non-cryogenic and metal seated ball valves.
