Emerson has completed a $ 73 million contract for automation systems and cloud engineering services, helping North West Redwater Partnership design, execute and complete its first-of-a-kind Sturgeon Refinery.

Southampton/UK — The Alberta, Canada refinery uses technology designed to produce ultra-low sulphur diesel for local consumption as well as for export to markets that demand low sulphur fuel.

Using key elements of Emerson’s Project Certainty methodology, North West Redwater Partnership reduced global automation engineering complexity and completed the instrumentation and control scope for refinery automation. The project team selected Emerson’s automation technologies and petrochemical project expertise to manage the refinery’s process control and safety system scope and help it safely begin producing diesel from synthetic crude oil in late 2017. The Sturgeon Refinery relies on an innovative, one-step process that, when fully operational, will convert diluted bitumen feedstock directly into ultra-low sulphur diesel while capturing carbon dioxide emissions.

Emerson's Magnetic Flow Meters Certified by Namur

10/24/2018 - Emerson’s Rosemount 8700 Series of Magnetic Flow Meters has been certified to comply with Namur recommendations, expanding the automation supplier’s portfolio of advanced process measurement solutions approved for use in the European chemical market. read...

As main automation contractor responsible for the entire instrumentation and control scope, the company provided integrated project management to reduce complexity and support North West Redwater Partnership with the alignment of multiple contractors. Cloud engineering using the supplier’s Remote Virtual Office technology enabled rapid mobilisation of resources and collaborative engineering, ensuring on-time automation delivery from experts around the globe.

The Sturgeon Refinery uses Emerson automation software and technologies, including Delta-V control and safety systems and AMS asset management software, as well as Rosemount instrumentation and Fisher control valves. The project team also leveraged Delta-V Operator Training Solutions and hands-on training to ensure operator readiness from the first moments of commissioning and start-up.

The refinery will process 79,000 barrels per day of diluted bitumen, while simultaneously capturing an estimated 1.2 million annual tonnes of carbon dioxide, which will act as a feedstock to assist in enhanced oil recovery of up to a billion barrels of light oil that would otherwise have been unreachable.
