Special Projects team completes bespoke
transmitter order for world’s largest gas field.

Emerson Process’s Special Projects team announces the successful
completion of a bespoke engineering project for the billion-dollar gas
project at South Pars in Iran. The project involved the design, manufacture
and delivery of 45 customised displacement level transmitters for an
Iranian company responsible for the marine facilities at South Pars.

The South Pars Gas Field is the largest gas field in the world straddling
the Iranian and Qatari sectors of the Persian Gulf. Currently undergoing
a massive 25-phase development programme, it will eventually produce
300 million cubic meters of gas daily. South Pars incorporates both in
and off-shore facilities and Solartron Mobrey was brought in to provide
reliable and accurate displacement level transmitters for marine environments
at the site.

The level transmitters were designed with several bespoke features in order
to ensure minimum maintenance and continued reliability within an aggressive
marine environment. This included using high strength non-corrosive materials
such as Inconel alloy and Stainless and Carbon steels within the housing and
process connections, and customer-specific switching points.

The Special Projects team comprises of six Mobrey engineers who
between them have over 100 years of engineering and design experience in
process measurement technologies. Based in the UK they handle all customer
special requirements from concept and design to manufacture and test.
Responsibilities also include co-ordination of activities required to generate
all the appropriate documentation in line with regional and industry-specific
legal and safety requirements as well as any contract specific documentation.

“The entire process is managed by one team from start to finish,” explains
Peter Neaves, Manager, Special Projects at Emerson Process “Where
necessary, as was the case with the South Pars Project, we coordinate
all those involved - manufacturing, purchasing, quality, engineering, sales,
and finance & shipping departments in order to complete the task at hand.
As a result the time between order and installation is greatly reduced.
The customer is kept abreast of product development at every stage, to
ensure timely delivery to meet project goals. ”
