subsidiary of QatarEnergy. Operations are expected to begin in
Designed using the latest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
reduction technology, the project aims to have approximately 25%
lower GHG emissions than similar facilities in the United States and Europe.
"With its digital automation technologies, industrial software
portfolio, and deep energy experience, we are relying on Emerson to
help ensure a project of this magnitude operates safely and
reliably, optimizes energy use and mitigates emissions," said
David Godard, project director for
the Golden Triangle Polymers Project.
The Golden Triangle Polymers Project, located in Orange, Texas, includes a 2,080 KTA ethane

units. Polyethylene is used to produce durable goods and essential
packaging to protect food and keep medical supplies sterile.
"The Golden Triangle Polymers Project and the recently announced
Ras Laffan Petrochemical Complex in Qatar are among the world's largest ethane
crackers, both leveraging Emerson's digital automation
technologies, software and expertise to promote safer, smarter and
more sustainable operations," said Ron
Martin, Emerson's president, Americas. "We are proud to
support Chevron Phillips Chemical's and QatarEnergy's track record
of building world-class, optimized facilities."
Emerson will deliver integrated process control and safety
systems that leverage advanced predictive technologies to reduce
operational complexity and minimize project risk through its
DeltaV™ distributed control and safety instrumented systems, and
Rosemount gas analyzer and chromatograph solutions. The project
also leverages Emerson's Mimic™ and AspenTech HYSYS® simulation
software for operator training, energy management, safety analysis
and operational optimization. Emerson's AgileOps operations
management software and alarm management services will help staff
monitor and maintain safety, alarms, and the control system to
drive improved process and operational integrity.
The Golden Triangle Polymers Project is located about 113 miles
east of Houston in the "Golden
Triangle" region of Texas that
encompasses the city of Orange.
