Emerson Process Management (Emerson), experts in valve automation solutions, has been contracted by Cameron LNG to help automate its new liquefaction project. The project includes the addition of three LNG trains to facilitate export of domestic natural gas to international markets. Emerson has been awarded automation contracts for more than half of all North American LNG export capacity. Estimated value of the project is USD $20 million.
Three new liquefaction trains will give the Hackberry, Louisiana, facility the flexibility to export up to 12 million metric tons per year 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, plus its AMS Suite predictive maintenance software to optimize the availability and performance of key production assets. Project specialists in Houston and in Pune, India, will provide related design and configuration services to help accelerate the project schedule.
