Emerson said on Tuesday that, as main automation contractor for the Clair Ridge project, it was responsible for implementing its advanced integrated control and safety systems, and measurement and control devices on the two bridge-linked platforms.

The company trained BP operators using its new, high-fidelity dynamic simulation model, enabling them to experience real-world scenarios before the system went live.

Lal Karsanbhai, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business, said: “This is another example of our collaboration with BP and commitment to combining proven technologies and the best expertise to help ensure safe, optimized production for many years to come.”

Emerson’s ongoing operational support, remote monitoring and predictive maintenance for Clair Ridge and Glen Lyon rely on Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem technologies, software, and services which equip plant personnel with relevant, real-time production data and analytics.

This includes its DeltaV integrated control and safety systems, asset management software, and measurement and control devices.

Clair Ridge is a multi-billion-dollar investment developed by BP and its co-venture partners ConocoPhillips, Chevron, and Shell.

Construction of the platforms was completed in 2016, with first oil announced on November 23, 2018.

Clair Ridge is designed for 40 years of production which is targeting 640 million barrels of oil reserves, with peak production expected to be around 120,000 barrels of oil per day.

It is also worth reminding that Emerson completed a multi-year, $90 million automation project on BP’s Glen Lyon FPSO back in February 2018.
