Emerson To Help Azerbaijan International Operating Company Enhance Safety And Efficiency Of Offshore Oil Platform In Caspian Sea

Tuesday, Feb 14, 2012

The Azerbaijan International Operating Company, operated by BP, has awarded Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), a multi-million-dollar contract to automate a new offshore oil platform in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea. The Chirag Oil Project, to be completed in 2013 and operated by BP Azerbaijan, will enable additional oil to be recovered from the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli field.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with BP Azerbaijan on this important project”

“We welcome the opportunity to work with BP Azerbaijan on this important project,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president, Emerson Process Management. “We look forward to applying our automation technology, our experience managing offshore projects, and our local support capabilities to help make the Chirag Oil Project a success.”

Emerson is the Main Automation Contractor for the project and will deliver a variety of technologies and services. The company’s PlantWeb™ digital plant architecture – including Foundation fieldbus communications, digital automation systems, asset management software, and intelligent field devices – will provide process control and access to management information. Its network of intelligent transmitters and valve positioners will deliver continuous process and equipment health information to identify potential problems before they affect operations.

Emerson also will provide project-management services to ensure the equipment is properly installed and integrated to meet technical, budget, and schedule requirements. Support for the Chirag Oil Project will be provided by Emerson Process Management’s Azerbaijan office in Baku.

Development of the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli field is managed by the Azerbaijan International Operating Company, a BP-operated consortium of nine oil companies.
