(Credit: C Morrison from Pixabay) Emerson has been awarded a $14 million contract to provide automation technologies for the new Azeri Central East offshore platform in the Caspian Sea, the latest development in the Azeri-Chirag-Deepwater Gunashli oilfield. Emerson will serve as the main automation contractor, providing its Project Certainty methodologies and digital technologies that transform capital project execution to help BP bring this fast-track project onstream in 2023.Digital twin solutions and cloud engineering services, part of Emerson’s Project Certainty methodologies, will help accelerate project execution. Emerson’s digital twin solution enables virtual testing and system integration while the platform is being built and provides a simulated environment for platform operators to train, helping ensure a safe, smooth start-up and ongoing operational excellence. Cloud engineering reduces engineering costs and time by enabling global teams to collaborate and engineer in parallel regardless of location.Emerson will apply its portfolio of automation software and services to help BP achieve greater production and safe operations. This includes Emerson’s DeltaV™ automation system that controls critical safety functions in addition to wellhead production, drilling and the transfer of oil and gas to the onshore Sangachal Terminal.Automation technologies also anticipate safety risks and enable remote monitoring, which reduces exposure of people and extends intervals between major maintenance turnarounds. Wired and wireless networks will connect more than 1,000 Emerson measurement instruments to monitor pressure, flow, temperature and pipework corrosion. Emerson will also provide all critical control, emergency shutdown and isolation valves, connected by its digital positioning technology.“This latest project builds on the successful collaboration between BP and Emerson on the West Chirag and Shah Deniz Stage 2 developments,” said Jim Nyquist, group president for Emerson’s systems and software business. “Our extensive experience helping organizations achieve capital project success has enabled us to become a trusted partner to digitally transform mega projects such Azeri Central East.”​​​​​​ Emerson will serve as the main automation contractor, providing its Project Certainty methodologies and digital technologieslast_img read more

Auction House reports best April in it’s history!

first_imgAuction House is reporting the highest number of April sales in the group’s 11 year history.The award-winning auctioneer sold a total of 306 lots during the month – a 16 per cent rise on the 264 sales in 2017, with a combined value of £43.6m. This included the sale of the 1,000th lot this year – a milestone reached one month earlier than last year.The property was a semidetached bungalow in Stanton Avenue, Northampton (pictured), which sold above its £135,000- £155,000 guide price, for £156,500.Auction House Founding Director Roger Lake said, “These are impressive statistics in a climate which is probably even more challenging than last year. To have continued delivering improved sales results is a remarkable achievement, especially when the property market as a whole is experiencing a bumpy ride, and with all the uncertainties of Brexit still ahead of us. It only serves to prove once again the attraction of auction as a speedy, secure and successful method of sale.”Cumulatively, the number of lots sold by Auction House in the first four months of 2018 was equally notable, with 1,032 sales so far (compared to 980 during the same period last year) and a total raised of almost £130m (£129,980,271), compared to £123m between January and April 2017.Roger Lake added, “These figures also indicate the consistently strong performance of our room auctions, which do not seem to have been adversely impacted by the rise in internet sales.“Our healthiest performances lie outside the south east of England – particularly in the Midlands and North West, where we’ve seen some strong gains. Interestingly, it would appear that the northern half of the country is no longer so rigidly dependent on what happens in London, but is now more influenced by its own regional factors.”auction Auction House auction lots auction sales June 15, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Carr’s continues its upward momentum

first_imgCarr’s Milling has continued to trade ahead of expectations since its interim results, largely driven by its agricultural and engineering operations.The group said it had seen a strong financial performance for the 19 weeks since its half-year end in February. This was ahead of market expectations and should result in profitability for the full year well above last year’s underlying result, it added.In an interim management statement, Carr’s said that its food division had continued to operate in a difficult market. It said: “We successfully implemented cost reduction initiatives to address, in part, the negative impact on margins from weaker consumer demand and continuing over-capacity in the market.”In May, net debt was £18.5m, down £5.4m on £23.9m a year earlier. As a result, analyst Investec Securities upgraded its pre-tax profit estimate to £8.65m for the full year, up on the £7m Carr’s Milling made last year.last_img read more

James R. Rice wins Louis Néel Medal

first_imgThe 2012 Louis Néel Medal has been awarded to James R. Rice for his seminal contributions to the fundamental understanding of strain localization, poromechanics, and friction.The award committee praised his elegant and systematic studies that have elucidated fault mechanics and the coupling with hydrologic and thermal processes during all phases of the earthquake cycle.This medal, given on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, is reserved for individuals in recognition of outstanding achievements in rock magnetism and rock physics and geomaterials.Rice, Mallinckrodt Professor of Engineering Sciences and Geophysics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS) at Harvard, is widely recognized, according to the EGU award announcement, as the world’s leading researcher in solid mechanics over the past four decades, having contributed so broadly not only in engineering, but also in geosciences.His early contributions in the areas of solid mechanics and materials science include the theory of crack propagation in elastic-plastic material, mechanics of void formation and ductile fracture, as well as formulation of inelastic constitutive relations.
