Yokogawa, Shell sign single source deal

Agreement covers monitoring and control systems for Gulf of Mexico greenfield and revamp projects.

Shell E&P has signed a ‘sole source’ agreement with Tokyo-headquartered Yokogawa Electric Corp. for the supply of monitoring and control systems for Shell’s greenfield and revamp projects in the Gulf of Mexico. Yokogawa’s North American unit signed the five-year contract. The deal covers Yokogawa’s Centum CS 3000 monitoring and control systems and ProSafe-RS safety instrumentation for upgrades to Shell’s GOM production facilities.


David Johnson, president of Yokogawa America said, ‘This contract involves Yokogawa in all aspects of the projects from application engineering to systems integration and strengthens our long-term relationship with Shell. These are among the largest and most complex projects we have done with Shell, and will bring ground-breaking technologies into play.’

Perdido hub

Projects include the Ursa water-flood and the Perdido hub, the deepest spar production facility in the world. Last year, Yokogawa signed a strategic supplier agreement with the Shell Group for provision of products, engineering, and maintenance services worldwide.
