Emerson has completed its $48 million contract for automation systems and cloud engineering software-as-a-service for the Shah Deniz 2 project in Azerbaijan and is fulfilling an ongoing five-year services contract to help ensure reliable, safe operations. Emerson’s support services, predictive reliability software and digital twin solutions will help optimise 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 metres of gas per year. Emerson served as the main automation contractor (MAC) for the megaproject, with the company’s Project Certainty approach supporting a reduction of global automation engineering complexity, which contributed to production starting more than four months ahead of schedule.
