Knowing how to use these latest advancements can help companies maximize their investments and set the industry up for success.”

The Emerson Service Center connects pipeline operators with local experts and advanced technologies to help expand capacity while meeting regulatory and environmental concerns.

In addition to serving customers, Emerson’s new center will be instrumental in providing local support to help fill the gaps created by the strain of the high growth in the Permian. Training capabilities on-site will help the industry bridge this skills gap and build a robust workforce ready to face the challenge of the digital workplace. Emerson’s commitment to STEM education and partnerships with schools across the country, and in the Permian Basin, will further support the development of a digital workforce.

“Customers are facing mounting pressures due to a limited skilled labor pool and challenges to obtaining access to parts and technology,” said Lal Karsanbhai, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Our new center further establishes our long-term commitment to the Permian and connects us directly with our customers as we support them in meeting market demands to increase production, enhance operations, minimize lease expenses and improve safety.”

The facility will serve as a collaboration point for midstream, upstream and gas processing customers, providing timely, local support that enables customers to place an order, resolve maintenance issues or discuss solutions for any immediate needs, said the company.

In addition, the company’s customers will have access to Emerson’s complete lifecycle services portfolio for valves, actuators, regulators and other assets to improve reliability and optimize production.
