New 50th JIP33 Specification published: S-729 Control Valves

JIP33 is proud to announce and issue its 50th JIP33 specification, Control Valves, which is now available to download and use free of charge from the JIP33 website.

Adri Postema, JIP33 Program Director says:

“At a time in which the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, the current disruption of the global energy market as a result of the war in Ukraine stresses the need for competitive procurement specifications that help us to move quicker through the energy transition.”

Over the past five years, the constructive collaboration of the experts of our 12 sponsors has been amazing. They have demonstrated a commitment to agreeing the essential minimum that is required in our specifications. Manufacturers, suppliers and EPC’s are playing an increasing role in these discussions and have become our allies in driving towards cost effective supply chains. Standard Development Organisations show a willingness to consider JIP33 content in future standards updates. We have never seen this level of industry collaboration before.

We also want to use this milestone to recognize the contributions of Aker Solutions, our partner in the process. Every working group has different challenges, and driving complex technical discussions to a conclusion is not always trivial.”

The purpose of this specification is to define a minimum common set of requirements for the procurement of control valves for application in the petroleum and natural gas industries.
