Emerson Selected by Indian Oil for Key Refinery Modernization Project

May 20, 2019

Emerson has signed multiple contracts totaling $12 million with Indian Oil Corporation Limited, India's largest commercial oil company, to modernize operations and emission programs at the company's refineries. The project will upgrade 14 different process units, including diesel hydro-treating units designed to reduce sulfur content and octane-boosting units either being installed or augmented with desulfurization technologies.

Emerson will serve as automation contractor, combining its deep refining expertise and advanced technologies to help Indian Oil meet the country's new Bharat Stage VI (BS-VI) low-sulfur emissions standards. The BS-VI emission standards mandate a maximum sulfur content of 10 parts-per-million, which matches best practices set by Europe, the United States and other countries, and include limits on carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter.

Emerson will install advanced technologies, including DeltaV™ distributed control systems; safety instrumented systems and AMS asset management software; WirelessHART-enabled instruments; wired field instruments including pressure, temperature and flow sensors; control and isolation valves; and gas analyzers. Emerson will also provide installation, commissioning, factory-acceptance testing and training support services.
