On October 9, 2017, NEXT TRADE’s products were added to the Register of equipment admitted to Gazprom facilities.
NEXT TRADE GROUP specializes in the manufacture of spare parts under the import substitution program, as well as non-standard gas production equipment to replace imported equipment used in Gazprom fields. The company’s main partner is Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan (operating pressures up to 70 MPa (700 kg/cm2), high content of hydrogen sulfide (H2S up to 27%) and carbon dioxide (CO2 up to 20%)). Patented needle valves and abundant experience in using stainless steel alloys and materials from the aerospace industry.
Currently, NEXT TRADE manufactures and delivers the following products under the import phase-out program:
– Control and surge valves analogous to Mokveld valves;
– Wedge-gate valves analogous to Roforge, UFR, LOG;
– Needle valves analogous to Swagelock;
– Gate valves analogous to Cameron, FMC, Malbranque.
– Components for foreign oil and gas equipment, including equipment tailored to conditions of operating pressures of up to 70 MPa, high H2S content and CO2 in mass fractions of up to 25%.
NEXT TRADE’s equipment and services hold the necessary approvals and are manufactured in accordance with such quality certifications as GOST, API, ANSI, ASME, EN, MSS, and NACE. Welding and surfacing technologies are certified and registered by the National Agency for Welding and Testing. A hydropneumatic testing rig for valves is certified for pressures up to 115 MPa (1150 kg/cm2). The quality management system is certified by TUV as per ISO 9001:2015.
Next Trade Group has abundant experience in the production of components for imported shut-off and control valves used at Gazprom’s facilities with a high content of H2S and CO2, particularly to replace products by Mokveld Valves.
In 2015, an axisymmetrical valve by Next Trade was successfully tested at the Production Directorate for the development of Achimov deposit, “Gazprom Dobycha Urengoy”. In 2016, testing of this valve was endorsed at “Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan”. As such, NEXT TRADE Group can offer analogues of high-pressure equipment with the same quality as that of components produced abroad.
As a manufacturer of customized gas production equipment, NEXT TRADE Group has collaborated with the Gazprom Scientific Research Institute of Natural Gases and Gas Technologies (VNIIGAZ) since the early 2000s.
This collaboration has been successfully addressing the challenge of import substitution in the oil and gas industry for many years. Almost 20 years later, the Voronezh manufacturer has completed three large-scale partner projects with the Gazprom Scientific Research Institute of Natural Gases and Gas Technologies (VNIIGAZ), which resulted in elimination of the critical dependence on imports experienced by dozens of companies working in the gas production domain.
The first joint project with VNIIGAZ was the selection of domestic materials for the manufacture of spare parts for oil and gas equipment used at the Astrakhan gas condensate field. As a result, about 10 materials were selected and approved for serial use with domestic equipment at the field in Astrakhan.
The next joint project by NEXT TRADE and VNIIGAZ was realised in 2015 through analysis of throughput calculations of a NEXT TRADE surge valve. From October 2015 to July 2016, the surge valve passed all tests and received all the required approvals.
Not long ago, NEXT TRADE and VNIIGAZ completed a joint analysis of Inconel 625 face cladding for shut-off valves to increase resistance to corrosion.
The assessment showed that the technology proposed by Next Trade of cladding valve bodies made of steel grade 03H12N10MTR (EP-810) ensures resistance to hydrogen sulfide-induced cracking. This confirmed the material, cladded with Inconel 625 alloy, as reliable for the manufacture of X-mas trees and valves for the Astrakhan gas condensate field.
Based on these results, Next Trade’s gate valve (DN 80 mm, PN 70 MPa) was installed for field testing at Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan. This valve may be used with/replace foreign analogues produced by CAMERON, MALBRANQUE and FMC, ANSON
