News sources report that U.K. manufacturer P.J. Valves has landed a contract for a liquified natural gas contract in New Jersey. The manufacturer will be responsible for building and delivering a number of different types of specialized valves to a major engineering contractor for an LNG modernization project.

P.J. Valves won the contract after submitting a competitive bid of $650,000. The company will manufacture 500 cryogenic and non-cryogenic valves for the project. The company was reportedly awarded the contract because of its valve designs and its ability to meet the project’s Dec. 2018 deadline.

A company spokesman said that the company is excited to be working on the project in the U.S. It manufactures valves at facilities that are located in India and Italy. The valves will be made out of stainless steel and carbon and will range in size up to 12 inches in diameter. The valves reportedly will be able to handle 2,500 pounds in pressure.

Businesses that are looking to secure construction contracts in New Jersey or New York might benefit by getting help from experienced construction contract lawyers. The attorneys may assist their clients with putting together bids and with negotiating the terms of any proposed contracts so that they might be more beneficial for their clients. If contract disputes arise, the attorneys may work to help their clients to successfully resolve them so that they can continue to perform their obligations under the contracts. If the disputes are major and cannot reach resolutions, the attorneys may work to recover damages on behalf of their clients through the litigation process.
