Honeywell Lands Belanak Contract
Honeywell Industry Solutions has been selected as the automation supplier for the Belanak oil field development project in Indonesia. This sale, valued at US $14.5 million, expands the Conoco and Honeywell relationship to Southeast Asia, a core geographic area for both companies.
Honeywell will work with the project's contractors for engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) to develop an integrated topsides-and-marine automation system for the grassroots FPSO facility, the Belanak Natuna, and two wellhead platforms. Honeywell is contracting directly with Kellogg, Brown & Root in Singapore on the FPSO portion of the project, and with J. Ray McDermott in Jakarta, Indonesia on the wellhead platforms. The new production facilities will be located in Conoco's operated fields in the West Natuna Sea. Honeywell is providing project management, engineering, configuration, and testing for the process control, process shutdown, fire and gas/emergency shutdown, and marine systems via a project team centrally located in Singapore. Honeywell is also providing installation, commissioning, and start-up support for the FPSO and wellhead installations.
Project work is already underway with first production expected in the third quarter of 2004, as well as achieving an early dry gas program.
Multiple Honeywell PlantScape distributed control systems will be integrated into one global database using Distributed Server Architecture. The Fail Safe Controller will provide critical process shutdown and fire and gas control. Honeywell Hi-Spec Solutions advanced application software to be incorporated includes the Uniformance PHD process historian and Profit Suite solutions for process control and optimization.
