HONEYWELL AUTOMATION TO CONTROL NORTH SEA PLATFORM REMOTELY FROM ONSHORE LOCATION Suite of Honeywell Technologies, Including Experion® Process Knowledge System, to Drive Safety and Efficiency at Statoil's Valemon Platform Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions (HPS) today announced it will provide advanced automation and safety solutions to enable remote onshore operation for an unmanned offshore platform in the North Sea, reducing overall production costs and improving safety. When drilling operations are completed, Statoil's Valemon platform, located on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, will become a periodicallymanned installation and Statoil's first platform that will be operated from shore. Control operations will be located in Bergen, some 100 miles (160 kilometers) away from the platform itself. Moving personnel off the facility will improve the overall safety of the operations while also boosting efficiency by centralizing the controls at the company's Bergen location. “This project is a great example of how Honeywell is able to use its technology and experience to help Statoil remotely control operations at an important gas production facility,” said Pieter Krynauw, vice president and general manager of the Projects and Automation Solutions business within Honeywell Process Solutions. “As companies move oil platforms Subscribe to our Digital Magazine farther offshore and into other remote, challenging locations to find oil and gas, managing those operations efficiently while reducing risk to workers will become increasingly important.” Honeywell will serve as t h e e n g i n e e r i n g , p r o c u r e m e n t a n d c o n s t r u c t i o n ( E P C ) automation contractor for the project. Honeywell will provide a range of c o n t r o l a n d s a f e t y technologies for the project including new operator stations and critical alarm panels at the o n s h o r e B e r g e n operations center that will communicate with the systems on Valemon. This solution will reduce the complexity of remote operations and reduce overall operating costs compared with standard solutions. The Valemon platform sits in about 440 feet (135 meters) of water and will produce natural gas and condensate from one of the biggest undeveloped natural gas fields in the North Sea with an estimated 192 million barrels of oil equivalent. Once drilling is complete in 2017, the platform will have 10 production wells. Among the technologies Honeywell will provide are Digital Newsletter its Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS), integrated protective solutions, Critical Alarm Panel with Safety Manager, integrated fire and gas and emergency shutdown solutions, and closed circuit TV software.
