Emerson to help Cameron LNG in gas liquefaction project

Emerson Process Management has been tapped by Cameron LNG to help automate its new liquefaction project, adding three liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains to export US natural gas to international markets.

Cameron has chosen Emerson to provide automation expertise and technologies that will help the company manage the LNG facility’s operations safely and efficiently.

The estimated value of the project to Emerson is $20 million.

Three new liquefaction trains will give the Hackberry, Louisiana-based facility the flexibility to export up to 12 million tpy of US-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, together with its AMS Suite predictive maintenance software to optimise the availability and performance of key production assets.

Project specialists in Houston, USA, and in Pune, India, will provide related design and configuration services to help accelerate the project schedule.

Emerson has been awarded automation contracts for more than half of all North American LNG export capacity.
