Emerson signed a five-year framework agreement with Equinor to provide operational support services for safe and optimized oil and gas production from its Martin Linge platform in the Norwegian North Sea. Operational support services include optimizing oil and gas production and reducing energy consumption.
The service agreement, which includes options for three additional five-year periods, covers maintenance and upgrades of the control technology, software, and instrumentation.
“With proven automation technologies, collaborative work practices and extensive experience, Emerson is the ideal choice for a trusted partner on energy industry projects of this scale and magnitude,” said Mark Bulanda, executive president, Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “With this service agreement, we look forward to helping Equinor achieve continued safe and carbon efficient production.”
The project will incorporate Emerson’s automation solution, DeltaV distributed control system. This technology enables both the platform and the FSO vessel to be mainly operated from an onshore control room in Stavanger, with offshore operators able to access the control system interface via mobile handheld devices.
