How We Brought One Refinery $14,000,000 in Extra Profit

Carrying out a turnaround can cause major setbacks for refinery schedules and can lead to a huge loss in profitability – one thing this particularly Gulf Coast refinery didn’t want to happen. For them, one unit shutting down meant a domino effect was created where the rest of the supporting equipment was affected.

They approached us to keep the vacuum tower and downstream units running in order to still meet their production targets during the turnaround scheduled for a few months’ time. We assessed their specific situation, brought in three refinery-grade, U-tube heat exchangers to keep everything at the right temperature, and installed a steam condensate drum and high-pressure pump.

 

This system kept the vacuum unit running, meaning the refinery could meet its deadlines. Because of that, they saw a huge boost in profits, bringing in an extra $14,000,000.
