The new 10-year agree­ment ex­tends the ex­ist­ing ar­range­ment be­tween the com­pa­nies, al­low­ing Emer­son to pro­vide an ex­panded scope of tech­nolo­gies and ex­per­tise that help en­sure safe and com­pet­i­tive projects and sup­port BP’s Field of the Fu­ture pro­gramme for en­hanced op­er­at­ing ef­fi­ciency and oil re­cov­ery. “This agree­ment fur­ther un­der­scores BP’s com­mit­ment to safe and re­li­able oper­a­tions, as well as our com­mit­ment to re­main­ing at the fore­front of up­stream oil and gas tech­nol­ogy,” said Adrian Luck­ins, vice pres­i­dent of global pro­ject so­lu­tions at BP. The new agree­ment ex­pands the com­pa­nies’ ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ship on up­stream projects. Un­der the scope of the new agree­ment, Emer­son will con­tinue to sup­ply au­to­ma­tion sys­tem tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing dis­trib­uted con­trol sys­tems and safety in­stru­mented sys­tems, but will now also pro­vide valves and mea­sure­ment in­stru­ments as well as tech­nolo­gies for su­per­vi­sory con­trol and data ac­qui­si­tion, as­set man­age­ment, and ma­chin­ery health mon­i­tor­ing. As main au­to­ma­tion con­trac­tor, Emer­son will also con­tinue to de­liver a range of pro­ject and sup­port ser­vices that in­clude sys­tem en­gi­neer­ing, in­stal­la­tion, con­fig­u­ra­tion, test­ing, and on­go­ing sup­port.
