Yokogawa and Maverick Technologies announced that their joint alliance has been selected as the main automation and control contractor for Chevron’s global refineries in a long-term agreement. Chevron intends to strengthen operations and reliability at its eight wholly owned refineries by standardizing and modernizing process automation and control infrastructure. Yokogawa will provide its control technologies and Maverick will provide the majority of the engineering, construction management and installation services through their YMAC (Yokogawa Maverick Alliance for Chevron).

The YMAC scope includes validation of design specifications, field instrumentation, integrated process control and safety systems design and implementation, asset optimization and advanced applications.
