Emerson Wins Big FOUNDATION Fieldbus Contract with BP

Emerson Process Management was recently awarded a $23 million contract by BP “to supply integrated control and safety systems for two new bridge-linked platforms for the Clair Ridge project.” Located in the North Sea, Clair Ridge is being developed by BP and co-venturers ConocoPhillips, Chevron and Shell. Emerson will serve as both automation supplier and Main Automation Contractor (MAC) for the project.  The installation will combine FOUNDATION fieldbus with Emerson’s wireless technologies, and is part of BP’s Field of the Future® program that will enhance recoverable reserves and boost operational efficiency.
