Emerson Awarded KNPC Oil/Gas Terminal Contract

Emerson Process Management announced a major contract with Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd. to supply an oil/gas terminal for Kuwait National Petroleum. Emerson's Daniel division has been contracted to provide the terminal's complete custody transfer measurement and operations system to be used at KNPC's "New Oil Pier."

Several Emerson divisions including Daniel, Micro Motion, Intellution, Rosemount, ASCO, and Appleton are supplying equipment. Hyundai is the general contractor for the entire project.

John Berra, executive vice president of Emerson with responsibility for the process management business, commented "This is a significant order for Emerson and a great example of how our organization is bringing the engineering and technology capabilities of its divisions together to provide innovative solutions for our customers."

Instrumentation for this major marine terminal will meet API requirements for custody transfer metering and proving of liquids plus some gas measurement. Thirty-two meter skids and twenty-eight provers will be supplied.

"We appreciate this opportunity to work with Hyundai and KNPC to develop a complete and integrated measurement system for this vital infrastructure project in Kuwait," Said Gene Perkins, President of Emerson's Daniel Division. Daniel in Houston will do design, integration, and Factory Acceptance Testing. Shipment is scheduled for completion by mid-2002.
