Closer to the Customer @ Mumbai, Maharashtra

As part of our commitment towards service at the doorstep to our clients, Advance Valves has recently established a new office in Mumbai, to provide prompt service across the western region.

The office is centrally located at LBS Marg, Mumbai.


Project Supplies: Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project:  Dual Plate Check Valves supplied to Bechtel

The fiscal year has begun well as we have manufactured and shipped a wide range of  Dual Plate Check Valves out of India with NB 50mm – 1200mm and rating ranging from ANSI #150 - #1500. These valves have been supplied to Bechtel, Houston for the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project based at Louisiana.

Sabine Pass is the natural outlet of Sabine Lake into the Gulf of Mexico.

Starting with 2, it will accommodate up to 4 LNG trains capable of processing approximately 2 Bcf/d of natural gas. The nominal capacity of each liquefaction train would be approximately 4.5 million tons per annum (mtpa).

Advance Valves has maintained its stronghold as a reliable supplier having successfully supplied cryogenic valves to Sabine Pass when it was initially developed as a receiving terminal 8 years back. Today Bechtel has invited Advance again when the site is being converted to an export terminal for the US Shale Gas.
