BP Exploration selects Emerson Process Management as automation contractor of choice for North Sea oil & gas operations

Emerson will be BP’s preferred supplier of integrated control and safety systems for five offshore fields in the U.K. continental shelf, including the new Clair Ridge platforms and the Quad 204 floating production, storage and offloading vessel.

Emerson’s selection as contractor of choice builds on an earlier agreement in which the company was named a Main Automation Contractor for BP projects globally. By standardizing on a single contractor for its North Sea region, BP expects to gain significant benefits including efficient project execution, training, maintenance and support.

Emerson will provide a wide range of services for control and safety systems, from front-end engineering and design to installation, testing and support. The integrated systems – which will help BP run its North Sea operations safely and efficiently – include Emerson’s DeltaV™ digital automation system, DeltaV SIS™ process safety system, and AMS Suite predictive maintenance software.

“We are already working together on several North Sea projects,” said Steve Barber, BP Exploration program lead for major automation projects. “This closer relationship will help us make the most of Emerson’s technologies and expertise across the region.”
