The refining industry is challenged by ever-changing markets, demand fluctuations and restrictive regulations. You are focused on solutions that create opportunities — opportunities to make money, reduce project costs, achieve schedule advantages. Our refining teams deliver predictable project results that solve industry challenges and support your business success.
Our project teams are client-focused, bringing our employee-ownership perspective to your projects, looking for process engineering and construction solutions that emphasize your priorities: uncompromising safety, cost-consciousness decision-making, predictable project execution.
Safety First in Refining Projects — and Beyond
It’s our culture. Every project begins with a safety plan. This uncompromising safety leadership is how we consistently achieve a safety performance that places us in the top quartile of CII member companies from year to year. It’s the reason our clients come back again and again.
Process Design and EPC Solutions
Our high-performance refining teams don’t provide textbook solutions. They solve problems with creative ideas that save you money. Open-book, guaranteed maximum-price contracts, with cost underruns returned to you, are a part of our typical project execution.
Our disciplined front-end work helps set up your project for success. Our multi-subcontractor construction approach provides competitive pricing with high productivity — leading to reduced labor costs and on-schedule completion. Our experienced estimators, engineers, procurement professionals and construction managers provide engineer-procure-construct (EPC) services that deliver predictable results.
