April 072004
Corinth Refinery to Increase Control and Monitoring Capabilities Through Honeywell TPS System

PHOENIX, April 7, 2004 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions announced today a $4.3 million contract with Motor Oil Hellas (MOH) in Aghii Theodory, Greece to expand the control and safety systems at the company's 100,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Corinth. The system expansion is part of a refinery-wide project to comply with new European Union fuel specifications starting in 2005. Through this project, the refinery will reinforce its ability to control and monitor the new processes, while ensuring the safety of daily operations.

"We have worked with Motor Oil Hellas since 1999 and are looking forward to further strengthen our relationship through this new opportunity," said Jerry Walker, Honeywell Process Solutions' Vice President of Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Honeywell's technology will provide MOH with cost-effective tools for optimizing process performance, improving employee productivity and getting better results overall from the resources they already have in place."

The contract includes Honeywell process control systems, High-Performance Process Managers, Fail-Safe Control (FSC®) systems, engineering, on-site services and project management.

The project will be conducted in two phases. The first phase includes the revamp of existing process units. To satisfy the needs of these revamped units, Honeywell will add new modules to expand the existing distributed control and safety management systems. Existing configuration and operator interfaces will be modified properly according to the revamping activities. The second phase is related to the construction of new units - the Mild Hydrocracker, Hydrogen production, Sulfur recovery, Utilities and others. A Honeywell distributed control system designed with the same standards as the existing one will control the new units. Four fully redundant Fail-Safe Control systems will manage the emergency shutdown functions.
