Under the agreement, Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson, will provide automation technologies and aftercare services for BP’s upstream oil and gas operations.

Under the scope of the new agreement, Emerson will continue to supply automation system technologies, including distributed control systems and safety instrumented systems. It will now also provide valves and measurement instruments as well as technologies for supervisory control and data acquisition, asset management, and machinery health monitoring.

“This agreement further underscores BP’s commitment to safe and reliable operations, as well as our commitment to remaining at the forefront of upstream oil and gas technology,” said Adrian Luckins, vice president of global project solutions at BP.

As main automation contractor, Emerson will also continue to deliver a range of project and support services that include system engineering, installation, configuration, testing and ongoing support. The agreement also provides for ongoing maintenance of existing systems.

“We appreciate BP’s continued confidence in our proven ability to execute large, complex oil and gas developments,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emerson Process Management. “Our team welcomes the opportunity to put that experience to work as we help BP operate its assets safely and responsibly, get to first production more quickly and easily, maximise operating efficiency, and optimise production and yield.”

This new agreement builds on the successful collaboration between BP and Emerson on a number of major upstream projects around the world. Emerson is currently providing automation services to BP for an FPSO vessel for the Quad 204 development and Clair Ridge offshore platform, both in the North Sea to the west of Shetland, and for the Chirag Oil Project and Shah Deniz Stage 2 project in the Caspian Sea.
