In addition to Petrobras the project is supported by ENI, Mokveld BV and the Research Council of Norway's Petromaks program.

The main objective of the project "Subsea Typhoon Valve" is to develop a cyclone based subsea choke valve which improves fluid transportation, increases the subsea system integrity and reliability, and reduces the environmental impact from petroleum production. In a broader perspective a subsea Typhoon Valve will contribute to:
  • Increased production rates
  • Reduced energy requirements for petroleum transportation
  • Reduced need for production chemicals
  • Less discharges to sea and less emissions to air
  • Increased reliability and service life of subsea valves and systems

Kick off for the project was in 2009 and it was concluded in 2013
