Research has pointed out that the instrumentation valves and fittings sector is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5.2% during 2019-2025 in the UAE.
Upcoming projects in the country such as the Barakah nuclear power plant, Ruwais industrial complex, desalination plants, chemical pipelines and Al-Taweelah Alumina Refinery, growing demand for instrumentation valves in oil and gas fields and automation across industries in Dubai will propel the demand for instrumentation in the UAE. The exploration of newer natural gas reserves in Abu Dhabi is also acting as a catalyst for the growth of the sector.
Moreover, with the Abu Dhabi Supreme Petroleum Council greenlighting ADNOC’s $132 billion in capital expenditure to expand the energy firm’s oil and gas production capacities, the oil and gas sector will need efficient and safe instrumentation to maintain high plant productivity and resource efficiency.
In the oil and gas industry, valves are an essential part of any piping system to control the flow and pressure of the contents. Ball valves are integral to oil and gas as they are able to meet the challenging requirements of the industry’s tough applications.
Utility of ball valves
The oil and gas industry is often plagued with problems such as leakage, leading to personal safety concerns. This is mostly due to extreme operating conditions involved in discovering, transporting and refining oil.
With flow and pressure control and air-tight shut off for corrosive fluids, slurrie, normal liquid and gases, and support for versatile pressures up to 200°C, ball valves come in handy in the oil and gas industry.
Ball valves are easy to repair, flexible and customizable as they contain a simple structure. The low-maintenance of ball valves makes them cost-efficient.
Valpres is a leading company in the production of steel, trunnion, cryogenic, control and cast-iron ball valves that offers a wide range of products in different materials to meet the varying operating conditions of the valves.
