Emerson wins deal in BP’s China project

Shanghai SECCO Petrochemicals Co, half-owned by BP, has awarded a USD 30 million deal to Emerson Electric Co. to help run a future USD 2.7 billion petrochemical plant in eastern China. Diversified manufacturer Emerson will be the main supplier of instruments to Secco, BP’s venture with oil giant Sinopec Corp., co-ordinating production at a plant expected to make 2.3 million tonnes of products a year. Shanghai Secco was set up in November 2001, with BP owning 50%, Sinopec 30% and its subsidiary Shanghai Petrochemical 20%. “Emerson will provide engineering, integration and project management leadership for this project,” SECCO project director Jack Brinly said. BP’s joint venture is expected to start up in early 2005. Equipped by a 900,000 tpy steam cracker, it will be China’s largest and BP’s sole petrochemical complex in Asia.
