Emerson has completed $48 million contract for automation systems and cloud engineering software-as-a-service for the Shah Deniz 2 project in Azerbaijan.
Emerson’s support services, predictive reliability software and digital twin solutions will help optimize operations and achieve reliable performance.
The $28 billion project includes the first subsea development in the Caspian Sea. At plateau, the BP-operated Shah Deniz 2 is expected to produce 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year incrementally to Shah Deniz 1 production.
Emerson served as the main automation contractor (MAC) for the project, with the company’s Project Certainty approach supporting a reduction of global automation engineering complexity.
Emerson’s advanced predictive reliability software and dynamic simulation software, parts of its digital twin solutions, will help anticipate upcoming reliability concerns before they impact production and simulate the impact of production performance improvements safely prior to execution.
“Emerson’s Project Certainty model is designed to help companies ensure that complex projects do not overrun timelines and budgets, and Emerson’s MAC services are a core element of that strategy,” said Jim Nyquist, group president of systems and solutions for Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We are proud to have helped complete this project ahead of schedule and excited to provide continued support to promote long-term successful operations.”
