Yokogawa for BP Angola FPSO program

New frame agreement covers Centum VP/Fieldbus-based integrated control and safety systems.

BP Exploration Angola has awarded Yokogawa Electric Corp. a frame agreement in connection with its Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Program in Angola. The award covers project management, engineering, operation and maintenance services for an integrated control and safety system (ICSS). The ICSS will be built around Yokogawa’s Centum VP integrated production control system, the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system, the Exaquantum integrated information system and the OmegaLand operator training system.

The ICSS will provide fully integrated and seamless control and safety functions for the subsea, marine, hull, and topside facilities of FPSO vessels along with a single interface allowing operators to start, control, and monitor all facilities from a central control room. Foundation Fieldbus technology will be used for advanced diagnostics. BP Angola is currently considering the development of up to four new offshore oil fields.
