Honeywell To Supply Integrated Safety And Security Platform For New Offshore Production Unit In Mexico

• Integrated approach to access control, intrusion detection, CCTV and real-time worker location will ensure highest level of safety and security performance

​• Plant and Personnel Safety solutions unified on one platform will help digitize, integrate and automate the EHS ecosystem

HOUSTON, October 1, 2020 -- Honeywell today announced that it will supply an integrated solutions platform to ensure the safety and security of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The FPSO is being engineered and constructed by MODEC Inc., a leading provider of floating solutions for the global offshore oil and gas industry.

As MODEC strives to improve overall safety and security performance, it requires reliable, integrated solutions for security and intrusion detection with a single user interface. With the Honeywell solutions, operators will be able to automate the entire emergency mustering process and reduce the duration of mustering from hours to minutes. In addition, radar video surveillance solutions will enable operators to receive early warning alerts in the event of any intrusion activity so they can secure the FPSO against unauthorized access.

“Honeywell offers a comprehensive set of solutions designed to protect people and facilities, including an integrated safety and security platform developed specifically for the requirements of the oil and gas industry,” said Tom Garbee, project manager for MV34, MODEC. "As operating companies have greater reliance on critical production resources such as FPSOs, managing them efficiently while reducing risk to workers will become increasingly important".

The new FPSO, to be leased and operated by MODEC for Eni Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V. (Eni Mexico), will be deployed in Offshore Area 1, approximately 10 kilometers off the coast of Mexico at a water depth of approximately 32 meters. The unit will have a daily processing capacity of 90,000 barrels of crude oil, 75 million cubic feet of gas and 120,000 barrels of water injection, with a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels of crude oil.

"This project is a great example of how our customers can protect critical assets at offshore production facilities with the help of Honeywell’s technology and experience," said Pramesh Maheshwari, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Project and Automation Solutions business. “The FPSO project with MODEC demonstrates our extensive product portfolio, proven integration know-how, broad global presence and innovative project execution capabilities.”

MODEC, headquartered in Tokyo, provides competitive floating solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry. It is recognized as a leading specialist for floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessels, floating LNGs (FLNGs), tension leg platforms (TLPs) and production semi-submersibles.

The integrated security solutions for the FPSO are part of Honeywell’s Plant and Personnel Safety (PPS) portfolio, an end-to-end solution designed to digitize, integrate and automate the environment, health and safety ecosystem. They will include CCTV, access control, perimeter intrusion detection and a real-time location solution for workers—all unified on the Experion® Industrial Security platform.
