Oliver Valves recognises that those industrial sectors that are now identified as “hard to abate” i.e., where switching to less environmentally impactful operations is not possible or extremely difficult; will need to adopt alternative, high-density fuel sources such as Hydrogen, and/or invest in technologies that capture the greenhouse emissions from their activities.
Therefore, the Oliver Valves family of companies intends to drive its decades of oil and gas valve know-how, coupled with world-leading R&D capability, into the green energy and emission abatement sector using the newly incorporated Oliver Hydcovalves Ltd company as the vehicle.
For more than four decades the Oliver family of companies including Oliver Valves, Oliver Twinsafe, and Oliver Valvetek have designed, developed, and manufactured cutting edge, reliable products for traditional oil and gas industries, however, times are changing…
Recognising that industry as a whole, not just the energy sector, now faces the challenge of transitioning to a future with net-zero emissions, Oliver Hydcovalves Ltd became the latest addition to the Oliver family. Incorporated with the primary objective of providing valve technologies that support the net-zero emission targets of industrial users, the company will build on the decades of expertise held within the Oliver companies.
Valves from the Oliver Twinsafe range are ideally suited for the new pipeline infrastructure that will be required for this rapidly expanding decarbonisation technology. Where subsea CO2 storage is required, valves from the Oliver Valvetek range have already been successfully deployed at the injection wellhead subsea tree. Reliability at depth is vital, even when injecting CO2 rather than extracting oil or gas; the Hydcovalves portfolio of adapted Twinsafe and Valvetek products, easily match client expectations in these extremely arduous applications.
With some of the most rigorous development and testing regimes in the industry, valves from the Twinsafe range can meet the requirements for the safe transportation of hydrogen in pipelines or storage vessels.
