MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (April 5, 2006) -- Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR), has won an estimated $30 million order for Fisher control valves to be installed at a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil for the Qatargas II LNG Plant expansion at the Ras Laffan Industrial Complex in Qatar.

The expansion will add onto the existing Qatargas site. Train No. 4 is scheduled to begin delivery of 7.8 million tons annually in late 2007, and train No. 5 is scheduled to produce an additional 7.8 million tons annually beginning one to two years later. Emerson is the Main Automation Contractor and is supplying its PlantWebR digital plant architecture for the project.

An extensive range of high performance Fisher digital valves made it possible to implement and custom design valve solutions to meet all process noise, temperature, flow capacity and pressure requirements. The sizes vary from 1 inch to 36 inches with pressure ratings up to ANSI 1500. The order was awarded on the basis of technical excellence. Delivery of the valves began in March of 2006.

Patented cryogenic sealing technology will be implemented in the valves. FisherR optimized antisurge digital valves will be used for the compressor recycle applications. Emerson's WhisperFloR low noise trim will be used to meet the plant's stringent noise requirements. The antisurge valves will have extremely accurate and fast-acting actuation systems, and all of the valves will be equipped with FIELDVUER digital valve controllers with advanced diagnostics capability. This state-of-the-art valve solution integrates into Emerson's PlantWebR digital plant architecture.
