Honeywell signed a five-year agreement to be a Main Automation Contractor (MAC) for Shell. The Global Framework Agreement (GFA) is part of Shell’s long-term MAC strategy to maximize production while lowering total operating costs by equipping its worldwide facilities with integrated process automation technology. Shell has signed similar agreements with several other automation systems providers, including Emerson Process Management and Yokogawa.

As a MAC, Honeywell will design automation and safety systems that aim to help Shell meet its customers’ energy demands in economically and environmentally responsible ways. Honeywell has served as a MAC on Shell projects for the past 30 years. Currently, Honeywell is working on three Shell projects, including a gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant in Qatar, the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) in Western Canada, and the expansion of its Port Arthur Refinery in Texas.
