Mustang evaluates emissions monitoring at Cherry Point

Project aims to increase BP’s continuous emissions monitoring system’s reliability.

Wood Group unit Mustang has completed a study of a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) at BP’s Cherry Point Refinery, Washington state. The CEMS reliability project includes the automation of BP’s emissions monitoring to meet environmental agency compliance requirements and provided recommendations for improvements in environmental data management activities. Mustang’s Automation and Control business unit leveraged its environmental consulting expertise in process operations and data management of air emissions from fired sources.

The study included programmable logic controller (PLC) function evaluation, data management and custom applications. The project aims to increase CEMS reliability across the refinery and to make recommendations as to network and data flow from the field instrumentation to the corporate business applications. Cherry Point refinery has a 225,000 bopd capacity. More from
