France’s Total has selected US firm Emerson in a 10-year contract to provide control and safety system maintenance services to its upstream oil and gas operations around the world.
The deal is the first of its kind between Total and an automation systems provider and formalises the strong relationship between the two firms.
Emerson will be responsible for servicing, maintenance, obsolescence planning, on-call application support, spare parts management, and reporting activities relating to integrated control and safety systems used in selected Total onshore and offshore sites. This includes Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control systems and DeltaV SIS safety systems, along with its AMS asset management software.
“This agreement strengthens Emerson’s relationship with Total and enables our services team to support Total in its continuous efforts to optimise the efficiency of their operations and ensure high safety performance,” said Mike Train, president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business.
