BOG’s Relationship with OMB
OMB is BOG’s technical partner for valves. OMB products range from 2-inch to 60-inch and pressure class ASME 150 to 2500, API 3000 to 10000psi; some products include:
Globe Valves: A globe valve is used for regulating flow in a pipeline, consisting of a movable plug or disc element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical body
Ball Valves: A ball valve uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. There are different types of ball valves; lip type, compact type, flanged type and top entry type. Each with unique features.
Gate Valves: also known as a sluice valve, usually opens by lifting a round or rectangular gate/wedge out of the path of the fluid.
Check Valves: are uni-directional valves that automatically open with forward flow and close against reverse flow. They efficiently supply a wide variety of applications with the closing element in the piston, ball or swing type.
BOG and OMB Collaborate to build a Valve Assembly Plant
BOG and OMB are in a partnership to establish a valve assembly plant at the Lekki Free zone where fabrication, testing, and painting of valves can be done. The inclusion of new product offerings is currently being explored. These offerings include gas testing, welding and painting. This collaborative effort promotes local content development that will result in economic benefits for our country Nigeria.
