Control valves for Qatar LNG plant

Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson, has won a USD 30 million order for Fisher® control valves to be installed at a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil for the Qatargas II LNG Plant expansion at the Ras Laffan Industrial Complex in Qatar. The expansion will add onto the existing Qatargas site. Train No. 4 is scheduled to begin delivery of 7.8 million tons annually in late 2007, and train No. 5 is scheduled to produce an additional 7.8 million tons annually beginning one to two years later. Emerson is the Main Automation Contractor and is supplying its PlantWeb® digital plant architecture for the project. An extensive range of Fisher digital valves made it possible to implement and custom design valve solutions to meet all process noise, temperature, flow capacity and pressure requirements. The sizes vary from 1in to 36in with pressure ratings up to ANSI 1500. The order was awarded on the basis of technical excellence. Delivery of the valves began in March of 2006.
