Emerson has been awarded a five-year contract with BP to provide predictive maintenance and operational support services to ensure safe, optimized production from its Clair Ridge platform and Glen Lyon floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
Clair Ridge is a multibillion-pound investment developed by BP and its co-venture partners ConocoPhillips, Chevron and Shell. Construction of the platforms was completed in 2016, with first oil announced on November 23, 2018. Clair Ridge is designed for 40 years of production. The development is targeting 640 million barrels of oil reserves, with peak production expected to be around 120,000 barrels of oil per day.
