Honeywell Wins Controls Systems Contract for Edvard Grieg Field
Honeywell Process Solutions announced Tuesday that it has won a multi-year contract to provide services and support to Lundin, Norway. Honey well said its Assurance 360 program will help Lundin "achieve continual and optimal" performance in its automation system at the Edvard Grieg field in the Utsira High area of the central North Sea.
The Edvard Grieg platform rests on the seabed in the North Sea and it has a full process facility. Honeywell's technology on the platform will include the safety and automation system, operator training simulator, engineering simulator, and production control center.
With production from the platform expected to start up in the fourth quarter of 2015, the field's reserves are estimated at 186 million barrels of oil equivalent. Gross plateau production is expected to be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Under the program, HPS will provide all necessary technology, processes and support for the system over the next four years, including hardware refresh, software updates and upgrades, and remote support. Key performance indicators in the contract will allow Lundin's management to monitor delivery of the service, while dedicated program management provides a single point of accountability for performance.
"A company like Lundin will really benefit from the Assurance 360 services program," John Rudolph, vice president and general manager of HPS's Lifecycle Solutions and Services business, commented in a company statement.
"It takes workload for ongoing services, maintenance and upgrades off their plate so they can focus on their core capabilities, while Honeywell focuses on the areas where we are experts such as control systems, safety systems and operator training."
