Automation projects representing more than half of North American LNG export capacity have been awarded to Emerson
AUSTIN, TEXAS (February 17, 2016) – Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has been tapped by Cameron LNG to help automate its new liquefaction project, adding three LNG trains to facilitate export of domestic natural gas to international markets. Because of its LNG expertise and proven track record in delivering complex projects on time, Emerson has been awarded automation contracts for more than half of all North American LNG export capacity.
Cameron has chosen Emerson Process Management to provide automation expertise and technologies that will help Cameron manage the LNG facility’s operations safely and efficiently. Estimated value of the project to Emerson is $20 million.
Three new liquefaction trains will give the Hackberry, Louisiana, facility the flexibility to export up to 12 million metric tons per year of U.S.-produced natural gas. The plant can also continue to import LNG for domestic use, or re-export LNG from other countries.
Emerson will provide its DeltaV™ distributed control and DeltaV SIS integrated safety system for both new and existing portions of the facility, plus its AMS Suite predictive maintenance software to optimize the availability and performance of key production assets. Project specialists in Houston and in Pune, India, will provide related design and configuration services to help accelerate the project schedule.
