FOCUS ON ENGINEERED PRODUCTS IN 2019 AND BEYOND

For 2019, we will give extra attention to critical applications such as subsea, LNG cryogenic (-196 deg C), high temperature, high pressure, HIPPS and ESDV.

We have proven ourselves in these applications over the years and now is the time we can leverage our installed base track record to grow our sales in these high-end applications.

We have further resourced our engineering department and restructured our organization to grow our engineered product sales this year.

We will profile our progress in these applications through our newsletter.

AWARD OF SHELL MALAYSIA 2+1 YEAR PRICE AGREEMENT

In December MIR VALVE has been awarded a Price Agreement of 2+1 year by Sarawak Shell Berhad and Sabah Shell Petroleum.

The scope consists of
Package A: supply of ball valves up to 24”
(manual & actuated)
Package B: engineering services for ball valves

During the years, MIR VALVE has become a major supplier for Shell in Malaysia and in the Asia-Pacific region, having supplied over the years ball valves up to 38” CL.900 SDV for subsea, riser and many other critical applications.

DELIVERY OF 24” HIGH PRESSURE MOV'S TO PETRONAS CARIGALI

We have delivered 2 pcs of MV3 Side-Entry High Pressure MOV Ball Valves to Petronas Carigali through PBJV Group. The ball valves are 24" CL.1500, FB, RF in Carbon Steel Body and Duplex Trim c/w with electric actuator, fugitive emission testing and high-pressure gas test, installation on offshore platform, Malaysia.

DELIVERY OF 20” MOV'S TO KOC - KUWAIT OIL COMPANY

We have delivered 6 pcs of MV3 Side-Entry MOV Ball Valves to Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) through Arabi Company. The ball valves are 20" CL.600, FB, RF in CS Body and Inc 926 Trim c/w with electric actuator for the Construction of Flowlines and Associated Works in North Kuwait Area Including GC-29, 30 & 31Project, offshore Kuwait.

CRYOGENIC TESTING FACILITY UPGRADE

We have upgraded our cryogenic testing facility to with a bulk storage / supply system with a capacity to hold up to 3 Tons of Liquid Nitrogen, as well as have Liquid Nitrogen Automated Purge Control System for both low temperature and cryogenic testing (-196 deg.C).

MIR VALVE has a long track record in low temperature ball valves and more recently in cryogenic ball valves, so in-house low temp and cryogenic facility is very of important to satisfy growing market demands for more and more critical testing.

Cryogenic ball valves have become one of our key applications, since we are actively pursuing the LNG market in our regions (Asia Pacific and Middle East)

ENGINEERING SALES SUPPORT

We are pleased to inform you that we have created a sub-department in Engineering for Sales support, headed by Mrs. Celina Ong, Engineering Manager with focus on Sales Support

The department's role and focus will be:

1) Technical advisory support to Sales and Technical Costing Teams especially for exotic frontier designs and new products where personnel with design background is needed to provide a more accurate estimate on what is technically possible, where the limitations lie and where new tools need to be developed.

2) Support the Outside Sales Team in Technical Meetings. This is one of MIR VALVE's key differentiators that we have a LOCAL design office well within reach of Malaysian and regional clients, this way we can have a strong technical presence in the local and regional market.

3) Conduct Valve Tech Trainings both internal and external, providing a more technical foundation to the sales staff and also adding value to client's FEED engineering, in hope of increasing design efficiency.

4) After-market activity support also to improve our local technical presence by engaging the operations & maintenance staff of the client in after-market activity.
