Emerson opens Permian Basin service center
03 April 2019
Emerson recently announced the opening of a new USD 4M Permian Basin Service Center to bring enhanced oil and gas technologies and services to the fast-growing region. Emerson’s new center expands its long-time Permian Basin presence to meet the growing demand for digital technologies to optimize production efficiencies and support producers facing labor and equipment shortages, and address workforce preparedness issues. The 16,000-square-foot facility provides local access to Emerson’s portfolio of automation solutions spanning from intelligent field devices and instrumentation to control systems, operations management, and enterprise management software.
The Permian; the most prolific oil-producing region in the United States has a critical need to expand its pipeline capacity for U.S. consumption and export. The Emerson Service Center connects pipeline operators with local experts and advanced technologies to help expand capacity while meeting regulatory and environmental concerns.
In addition to serving customers, Emerson’s new center will be instrumental in providing local support to help fill the gaps created by the strain of the high growth in the Permian. Training capabilities on-site will help the industry bridge this skills gap and build a robust workforce ready to face the challenge of the digital workplace. Emerson’s commitment to STEM education and partnerships with schools across the country, and in the Permian Basin, will further support the development of a digital workforce.
The facility will serve as a collaboration point for midstream, upstream and gas processing customers, providing timely, local support that enables customers to place an order, resolve maintenance issues or discuss solutions for any immediate needs. Customers will have access to Emerson’s complete lifecycle services portfolio for valves, actuators, regulators and other assets to improve reliability and optimize production.
