Honeywell announced it will design and deliver the Integrated Control and Safety System (ICSS) that will enable to BP remotely manage its newest offshore compression platform off Trinidad and Tobago’s southeast coast.
As the project’s main automation contractor (MAC), Honeywellwill deliver all systems, detailed engineering and lead procurement for theintegrated control and safety system. The solution will be based on Honeywell’sflagship control system, the Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS). This isthe third offshore platform for the Cassia Complex off the southeast coast ofTrinidad and Tobago, with Honeywell serving as MAC for all three projects.
Located approximately 57 km off the southeast coast of Trinidad, the platform will have a throughput capacity of 1.2 bcfcd. The project will enable BP to access and produce low pressure gas reserves from currently producing fields in the Greater Cassia Area, maximizing recovery from these existing resources, the company said.
The project involves the construction of a new platform, Cassia C, BPTT’s 16th offshore facility. Gas production from the Greater Cassia Area will be routed to Cassia C for compression before being exported via the adjacent existing Cassia B platform. First gas from the facility is expected in the third quarter of 2021.
“Honeywell’s technology will enable BP Trinidad and Tobago to remotely run this typically unmanned platform efficiently, safely and with a high level of digital security,” said John Rudolph, president, Honeywell Process Solutions. “This project is a testament to Honeywell’s commitment to providing premier customer support, migration and continuous improvement. All this enables us to maximize the value of assets throughout its lifecycle.”
This new project follows the 2018 award of the MAC contract to Honeywell for BP Trinidad and Tobago’s Angelin offshore gas project. An earlier contract was awarded for the Juniper platform. Both projects are currently operational.
