An innovative valve retrofit solution from the Technical Products and Services team at Severn Unival enabled an offshore operator to make important asset upgrades within a tight timeframe.

The operator had a four-week window to increase the capacity of compressors on a facility located off the Dubai coast. This had implications for the requirements of anti-surge cycle control valves involved in the compression system. However, procuring new valves would have taken around 24 weeks.

Severn Unival devised a retrofit solution to increase the capacity of the existing valves and ensure they met the complex demands of the compressor system.  As well as ensuring a quick turnaround, this approach delivered significant cost savings for the operator.  For the case study outlining the project please visit
