ABERDEEN, UK – Nexen Petroleum UK has contracted Yokogawa UK to supply of an integrated control and safety system (ICSS) for the Golden Eagle area development in the central North Sea.

The ICSS package will feature Yokogawa’s CENTUM VP process control system. This, the company says, provides a fully integrated operator environment with advanced alarm management facilities for all the ICSS systems and associated third-party packages.

The SIL-rated process shutdown systems and main fire and gas detection systems will be based on Yokogawa’s ProSafe-RS safety system, with ProSafe-SLS solid-state safety system technology deployed for the emergency shutdown system.

The ICSS will be installed throughout the new Golden Eagle complex, comprising a process utilities and living quarters platform and a bridge-linked wellhead platform.
