Challenges

Stringent regulations. Increased public scrutiny. Remote production locations. Extreme weather events. The midstream oil and gas business is becoming increasingly complex.

Navigating inherent complexities requires big picture thinking and a willingness to critically assess all parts of the process in an integrated fashion—processing, transportation, and storage. To be successful, the whole industry needs to work together to drive profitability and minimize environmental and social impacts, while always maintaining the highest levels of safety.

As your partner, we will work with you to minimize risks and increase stakeholder value through efficient project planning, analysis, and execution. Leveraging our core expertise, we provide a well-thought-out plan that incorporates all aspects of your project—from concept through to completion.

Capabilities

Hydrocarbon pipelines

The importance of robust and reliable utilities and offsite (U&O) systems are often underestimated. Yet steam, oxygen, power, and plant air systems are typically deeply integrated within the main process value chain, presenting risk if not properly designed.

Pipeline networks are quintessential for the safe transmission and distribution of hydrocarbons. The pipeline transportation channel calls for sophisticated designs that enable an uninterrupted supply of gases and fluids to transport safely and in a way that’s environmentally sensitive. Our expertise is comprehensive in all aspects of pipeline systems and the associated infrastructure—compressor and pump stations, field devices, tie-ins, valve stations, LACT units, trenching, and trenchless technologies. Let us help you minimize the risk of working in extreme environments and remote locations, increase stakeholder value, obtain necessary regulatory approvals, and maintain pipeline integrity. Hatch is also partnered with Innovative Pipeline Projects Ltd. (IPP), a specialty pipeline engineering firm.

Rail transport and dispatch

A lack of pipeline-takeaway capacity along with high-diluent demand and increasing costs have been pushing many producers to ship their crude oil and products by rail.

Rail terminals play an important role in the oil and gas transportation network. Efficient loading and offloading facilities support the seamless transfer of liquids between rail and other forms of transportation. Our team of in-house multidisciplinary engineers and architectural experts can help you design and construct a new terminal or transload facility from the ground up, or successfully execute work in an operating environment.

We have the solutions to improve overall terminal operability and efficiency, so your entire supply chain runs more smoothly.

Marine terminals

The world’s ports are the heart of a dynamic, interdependent oil and gas logistics network. They are the backbone of global trade. But aging infrastructure, lack of investment, regulations, and climate change are challenging this critical supply chain. To manage these challenges effectively, you need a thorough understanding of the business drivers; effective integration of the planning, design, construction, and operation phases; and a comprehensive, innovative, and cost-effective approach to problem-solving. From new facility constructions to upgrades and expansions, we have the background and know-how to make your port and marine terminal project a success.

Industrial gas utilities and offsite facilities

The importance of robust and reliable utilities and offsite (U&O) systems are often underestimated. Yet steam, oxygen, power, and plant air systems are typically deeply integrated within the main process value chain, presenting risk if not properly designed.

Our deep expertise includes oxygen supply, steam systems, plant air, and power systems. We develop and deliver U&O systems that not only enable and support core process value chains, but add value through optimum efficiency, and minimize redundancy in design and flexibility.
