Rockwell captures oil and gas deals

01 September 2013

GLOBAL automated solutions provider Rockwell Automation continues to grow in the oil and gas sector after securing a number of contracts. The contracts include a technical upgrade of a gas terminal and a semi-submersible rig as well as complementary contracts for electrical and instrumentation engineering, procurement and construction (E&I EPC) services which will provide increased value to its customers’ automation projects.  

Rockwell Automation’s products and solutions, which support a number of major oil and gas clients, are designed to maximise process productivity and uptime across a wide range of industries, while reducing energy consumption, complying with applicable regulations and minimising risks.

Michael Chan, Middle East oil and gas account manager at Rockwell Automation, said: “Our services are all tailored to the individual client and designed to make some processes automatic so as to minimise downtime and maximise productivity. We also provide system support and integrated technology solutions as well as project management.”

Major sector
Chan said the oil and gas industry is a major sector for Rockwell Automation, a fact borne out by recent contract wins and continued growth.

A multinational company with customers in more than 80 countries, Rockwell Automation employs around 21,000 staff across the world, specialising in process control, process safety, power management and process information systems and services designed to give clients a competitive advantage.

“With the UAE pressing ahead with a plan to boost crude oil production capacity to 3.5 million barrels per day (bpd) by 2017, the country retained its position in the Middle East as the biggest spender in oil and gas sector. Thus, Rockwell Automation continues to strengthen its position with its PlantPAx process automation system, Allen Bradley and ICS Triplex product lines,” a company statement said.
