Emerson Selected to Automate Golden Triangle Polymers Facility
Mar 19 2023
Emerson, has been chosen to provide automation technologies, software, and analytics for the Golden Triangle Polymers Project, a world-scale integrated polymers facility located on the Texas Gulf Coast. The project, a joint venture between Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP and an indirect subsidiary of QatarEnergy, is expected to have a total installed cost of $8.5 billion and is designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by approximately 25%.
Emerson will leverage its Plantweb™ digital ecosystem to deliver integrated process control and safety systems that utilize advanced predictive technologies to reduce operational complexity and minimize project risk. The company's DeltaV™ distributed control and safety instrumented systems, Rosemount gas analyser and chromatograph solutions, Mimic™ and AspenTech HYSYS® simulation software, and AgileOps operations management software and alarm management services will help ensure the project operates safely and reliably, optimizes energy use, and mitigates emissions.
"We are proud to support Chevron Phillips Chemical's and QatarEnergy's track record of building world-class, optimized facilities," said Ron Martin, Emerson's president, Americas. "The Golden Triangle Polymers Project and the recently announced Ras Laffan Petrochemical Complex in Qatar are among the world's largest ethane crackers, both leveraging Emerson's digital automation technologies, software, and expertise to promote safer, smarter, and more sustainable operations."
The Golden Triangle Polymers Project, located in Orange, Texas, includes a 2,080 KTA ethane cracker as well as two 1,000 KTA high-density polyethylene units. Polyethylene is used to produce durable goods and essential packaging to protect food and keep medical supplies sterile. Operations are expected to begin in 2026.
"With its digital automation technologies, industrial software portfolio, and deep energy experience, we are relying on Emerson to help ensure a project of this magnitude operates safely and reliably, optimizes energy use, and mitigates emissions," said David Godard, project director for the Golden Triangle Polymers Project.
