Highlighting the growing significance of the natural gas and LNG sector to the gas and equipment industry, Emerson Process Management has been awarded contracts, valued at $67 million, to provide control valves and actuators at the Gorgon Project in Australia.

The Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects.

Under the terms of its new contract, Emerson Process Management is providing the majority of the control and shutdown valves for this natural gas project.

The contracts include over 1000 control valves, valve controllers and actuators for applications ranging from inlet gas processing, acid gas removal, liquefaction and fractionation, to anti-surge and cryogenic.

Emerson’s valve and valve automation technologies provide the ability to accurately manage the production of gas, resulting in tighter and more accurate control that increases overall system efficiency and safety, and helps ensure environmental compliance. Fisher® FIELDVUE™ digital valve controllers provide automated configuration as well as improved control valve calibration and tuning. Built-in diagnostics enable technicians to remotely monitor the health of a valve assembly and can alert them to pending issues.

Additionally, Emerson’s Roxar™ subsea wet gas meters will be used to provide real-time, accurate measurements of hydrocarbon flow rates and water production.
