Phoenix, Ariz. - The Industry Solutions business of Honeywell announced Feb. 11 that BP has selected it and Mustang Automation and Control (Houston, Tex.) as the control system vendor and integration supplier, respectively, for the planned development of the BP Deepwater Development fields in the Gulf of Mexico. Honeywell will supply control system hardware and software; management information systems interface; and ongoing maintenance services valued at $13.9 million for a minimum of four deepwater development projects in the gulf.

The innovative relationship Honeywell formed with Mustang, a leading systems integrator in the oil and gas industry, enabled the creation of an integrated project team to provide integration services for the projects. Mustang, a Wood Group company, is an independent services provider to the domestic and international oil, gas and chemical industries. The company specializes in design, engineering, procurement, project management and construction management of upstream oil and gas facilities and structures, process plants, pipelines and automation and control projects. Its capabilities range from initial feasibility studies through startup for both onshore and offshore projects.

"A number of factors contributed to the development of this project with BP," says Terry Sutter, president of Honeywell Industry Solutions. "First, we provide project-over-project savings by applying best practices and dedicated project teams throughout the life of the project. Second, our open control system allows our customers to integrate topside and sub-sea controls. Finally, Honeywell's relationship with Mustang simplifies design coordination for long-term and complex projects like this one with BP."

Honeywell will provide PlantScape open control system hardware and software. PlantScape uses its Distributed Server Architecture, which lets geographically dispersed PlantScape systems share real-time data, which integrates the project's various operations and sub-systems. The company will also supply Uniformance PHD, Honeywell's unified approach for supporting mission-critical business functions in numerous industrial markets, which will link to BP's management information systems. Honeywell also will be involved in project implementation through commissioning and first oil in 2004-2007. All four of the large fields mentioned above will begin production by 2007.
