Agree to five-year contract with option to renew.

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Endress+Hauser will supply the global energy company Shell with process measurement instruments, engineering and associated services. Both companies have signed an enterprise framework agreement (EFA) with an initial term of five years.

Shell selected Endress+Hauser for the global provisioning of instruments and technologies for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurements and for liquid analysis. The Swiss-based process measurement engineering specialist will be the primary supplier for these instrument types. Endress+Hauser will also provide to Shell project management, engineering, maintenance, repairs and site services in Shell facilities around the globe.

Endress+Hauser and Shell have enjoyed a close business relationship for many years. Both companies have cooperated in a number of major projects, including the Pearl GTL project, the world's largest gas-to-liquid plant in Qatar.

"We welcome this opportunity to continue working with Shell," says Thomas Vogel, Director of International Business at Endress+Hauser. "We're looking forward to developing products and solutions for Shell's projects and plants. We are confident that we will exceed the expectations and targets set by the enterprise framework agreement."

The EFA covers all business units worldwide, both in the upstream (exploration, production) and in the downstream sector (refining, logistics). The contract has a term of five years with an option to extend for another five years.
