BP will use the Asset Guardian toolset to improve the performance and security of the process control software that it will use throughout the Clair Ridge project, and to operate assets associated with the Clair Ridge field development when it is fully operational.
West of the Shetland Islands offshoreScotland, the project will feature two bridge-linked platforms and new pipeline infrastructure to connect to processing facilities on Shetland.
The development is the first sanctioned large-scale offshore enhanced oil recovery scheme to use reduced salinity water injection (LoSal EOR) to extract a higher proportion of oil over the life of the field.
AGSL provides the Asset Guardian toolset to BP as part of a global frame agreement. As a result, BP currently uses the Asset Guardian toolset to protect and manage the process control software that it uses to operate facilities in Angola, Azerbaijan, Oman, Oklahoma, and Alaska.
