Rotork wins valve actuation contract

Rotork Fluid Systems has received an order valued in excess of one million euros for the actuation of valves in the feed gas preparation area of the Pearl GTL (Gas to Liquids) project in Qatar. This is the largest plant of its type in the world, due for completion by the end of the decade. The order has been placed by Orton Industrial Valves in Italy and involves the supply of a total of 180 GP and CP range pneumatic actuators for the operation of butterfly valves in sizes ranging between 8 and 24 inches.
    Built by Chiyoda of Japan, the Pearl feed gas preparation plant comprises two trains of processing units with a total capacity of 1600 MSCFD (million standard cubic feet per day) of natural gas, equivalent to 8 MMTPA (million tonnes per annum) of LPG. The plant will supply feed gas to the GTL core unit for the production of 140,000 barrels per day of clean, high quality fuels and products.

    The Pearl GTL project is being developed by Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Shell GTL Limited and is expected to produce three billion barrels of oil equivalent wellhead gas over the period of the agreement. A total of USD 10 billion of contracts has been awarded to-date, including all the major engineering, procurement and construction contracts.
