ABB will supply an integrated process control and safety system for a new wellhead platform in ConocoPhillips’ Jasmine gas field in the central North Sea. Additional contracts will see ABB enhance existing network and operating systems on the company’s Judy installation.
The Jasmine development will comprise a 24-slot wellhead platform with bridge-linked accommodation. The wellhead platform will connect to the Judy platform via a multiphase pipeline to a new riser platform connected to the existing Judy platform via a bridge.
ABB will provide its System 800xA process control solution for Jasmine, with remote and locally mounted I/O units located around the platform, allowing space savings while also cutting cabling requirements. The 800xA system will integrate third party packages, including fire and gas detectors and metering packages, allowing the customer to operate these facilities from a single location.
The project will allow Judy to continue as the operational center for the field, while also allowing local control facilities at the Jasmine Wellhead Platform and Living Quarters.
System 800xA also allows ConocoPhillips’ engineering contractors to access ABB’s engineering data during the design stages, ensuring the can track changes and developments during the project’s lifetime.
