Metso valves protect petrochemical complex in Oman
August 2017, Valves, Actuators & Pump Control


Metso has supplied 400 industry-leading Neles emergency shutdown (ESD) valves for an ethylene cracker as part of the new Liwa Plastics Industrial Complex (LPIC) project in Oman. The new complex will process light ends produced in Orpic’s (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) Sohar Refinery and its Aromatics plant as well as optimise natural gas liquids (NGLs) extracted from currently available natural gas supplies.

Orpic is one of Oman’s largest companies and one of the most rapidly growing businesses in the Middle East oil industry. Orpic’s refineries in Sohar and Muscat, as well as the aromatics and polypropylene plants in Sohar, provide fuel, chemicals, plastics, and other petroleum products, to Oman and to the world. To continue to meet the needs of Oman and international markets, Orpic is undertaking three strategic growth projects – Muscat Sohar Product Pipeline (MSPP), Sohar Refinery Improvement Project (SRIP) and Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC), in line with the company’s strategy to add value to the oil and gas resources of Oman. Liwa Plastics Industries complex is a transformational project that will improve Orpic’s product mix and business model, double its profit and support the development of a downstream plastics industry in Oman.

“We are pleased that Orpic trusted Metso’s knowledge in demanding valve solutions for its new petrochemical complex. Metso’s ESD valves are widely used in refineries, petro-chemical sites and LNG plants around the world. Top-level safety and field-proven reliability are the strengths of Metso’s valve solutions,” comments Heikki Voutilainen, global project sales manager, Flow Control, Metso.

The delivery includes Neles ESD valves ranging in size from 6”- 40”. ESD valves are a vital part of a safety instrumented system (SIS). The valves are equipped with Neles ValvGuard intelligent safety solenoid valves, which can monitor valve condition, perform on-line testing and automatic reporting, and enable need-based maintenance. Furthermore, to guarantee flawless installation, commissioning and operation, the contract also includes optional customer site training and maintenance services for the new plant.

Comprehensive range of control and automated on-off valves for hydrocarbon applications

Today, Metso’s Neles control valve range is one of the most comprehensive on the market. It includes globe valves, top entry rotary valves, triple eccentric disc valves, eccentric rotary plug valves, and segment valves. Metso’s automated on-off valves include SIL-rated Neles and Jamesbury ball and butterfly valves. All valves are provided with Neles or Jamesbury actuators and conventional or smart accessories.
