Emerson, in partnership with Fores Engineering, has signed a $32m contract with Sonatrach, Algeria’s state energy company, to modernise its gas processing plant in Alrar. As part of the contract, Emerson will combine its innovative technologies and operational certainty methodology to optimise Sonatrach’s production operations and improve the reliability and security of the Alrar plant’s processes.
Emerson’s modernisation programme at the Alrar gas processing plant, in the south-east part of Algeria, is designed to help Sonatrach achieve Top Quartile performance – defined as operations and capital performance in the top 25 percent of peer companies.
The project strengthens Emerson’s presence in Algeria, which is a strategic market for the company in Africa. “We are proud to provide Sonatrach the automation it requires to expand its gas processing operations in Alrar,” Taleb added.
In its role, Emerson will update control and safety systems, fire and gas systems, field instrumentation control and isolation valves, and other equipment to improve production efficiencies, equipment reliability and safety.
The project includes the engineering procurement, commissioning and testing of the new integrated control and safety systems, fire and gas systems, boosters and compressor controls, field instrumentation, liquid and gas metering skids, control and isolation valves, and other equipment for improved production efficiencies, equipment reliability and safety.
