Emergency Shutdown System Project achieves key milestone

Inspec Solutions have now completed acceptance testing, alongside our client and DNV GL, of a replacement Emergency Shutdown (ESD) System for one of the Normally Unmanned Installations (NUI) in the Leman gas field. The system is now being shipped and our engineers are due offshore for installation and commissioning before the end of 2020.

This system is the very first phase of the Southern North Sea field SHARP project being undertaken by Inspec Solutions for the Integrated Control & Safety System (ICSS) made up of process control, Fire & Gas and Emergency Shutdown/Safety instrumented Systems based on Rockwell & SCAME (Honeywell) technology.

The modified platforms will become Normally Unmanned Installations (NUI’s) and will be controlled from the control room of the associated new compression platform, as well as monitored in an onshore control room in Bacton.

The whole scheme is part of Perenco’s Southern Hub Asset Rationalisation Project (Sharp) which will combine the two “oversized” Leman and Inde fields into one fit for purpose production hub.
