Yokogawa wins gas field control project in Algeria
Japan’s Yokogawa Electric Corporation has been awarded a contract for supply of equipment for the first phase of Algeria’s In Salah Gas project, jointly operated by BP Exploration Limited and Sonatrach. The order was awarded by M.W.Kellogg Ltd., who is jointly owned by JGC Corporation and Kellogg Brown and Root.

The scope of this award includes CENTUM CS3000 R3 integrated production control system, the ProSafe safety system, a wide area monitoring system and various field instruments such as flowmeters and transmitters.
