Emerson has signed a five-year framework agreement with Equinor to provide operational support services to ensure continued safe and optimised oil and gas production.
The service agreement for the Martin Linge platform in the Norwegian North Sea includes options for three additional five-year periods, covering maintenance and upgrades of the control technology, software and instrumentation.
These technologies are helping to accelerate carbon-efficient production and empower remote operation from onshore for increased worker safety and reduced operating costs.
Martin Linge is a significant development for Norwegian oil and gas production, with expected recoverable resources of around 260 million barrels of oil equivalent.
Emerson’s technology, project expertise and global resources were crucial in helping achieve first oil safely, and with the award of this service contract, Equinor gains continued support to optimise production, reduce energy consumption and emissions, and maximise the potential of the Martin Linge development.
Martin Linge, situated 42 kilometres west of Oseberg, was the first platform on the Norwegian continental shelf to be started up from shore.
“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 of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “With this service agreement, we look forward to helping Equinor achieve continued safe and carbon efficient production.”
