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, transporting, and storing. 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.
Oil, gas, and multi-phase hydrocarbon pipelines
Pipeline networks are quintessential for the transmission and distribution of hydrocarbons. The pipeline transportation channel calls for sophisticated designs that enable an uninterrupted supply of fluid to move safely and in a way that's environmentally compliant. Typically, the focus is on integrity monitoring and automation.
Our expertise is comprehensive in all aspects of pipeline infrastructure, including compressor and pump stations, field devices, tie-ins, valve stations, 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.
Years of experience in the design and installation of gas processing facilities helps us deliver sound solutions to our clients.
From dehydration, where we design systems for the removal of water from gas and NGL liquid streams to meet your saleable specifications using processes; to acid gas removal, where we implement amine systems, physical solvents, and scavenger systems to efficiently remove CO2, H2S, and mercaptans from natural gas to required specifications; to fractionation, where we can recover NGLs from the sweetened, dehydrated gas stream by use of standard propane refrigeration systems, turbo expander plants, and lean oil absorption units—we have the gas-processing expertise to optimize your operation.
Storage and distribution
From tank farms to salt caverns, we have a proven track-record in assessing, planning, designing, and constructing reliable hydrocarbon storage solutions. With health, safety, and the environmental performance always top of mind, we can help you update existing site infrastructure in a safe and robust manner, while our optimization solutions can help to increase peak fuel demand storage capacity.
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.
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.
