BP Exploration signed a deal with Emerson Process Management to the automation provider to act as automation contractor for offshore oil and gas operations in BP’s North Sea Region.

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

The integrated control and safety systems from Emerson – which will help BP run its North Sea operations safely and efficiently, from front-end engineering and design to installation, testing, and support – include the DeltaV digital automation system, DeltaV SIS process safety system, and AMS Suite predictive maintenance software.

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