Petrochemical & Refinery
Refineries process crude oil using a variety of complex industrial processes and associated infrastructure. Operating safely, avoiding unplanned outages, and properly maintaining refinery equipment are key objectives of the refinery plant manager.
Acuren works to assist our refinery clients plan and execute inspection work while minimizing facility downtime. Services include mechanical integrity (compliance to PSM), Risk Based Inspection (RBI), NDT Level III (i.e., provide sign off of NDT per client request and requirements), support of owner-user integrity management system, project and turn around NDT supervision (i.e,, administration, safety/quality, planning/scheduling), and audit services. Our advanced services group examines piping systems and other critical components.
Our on-site managers integrate NDT crews with plant maintenance operations and refinery protocols and ensure we are working safely. They follow and train to our Refinery Playbook, a quality assurance document that is consistently updated with our best inspection practices. Important to our work is responsively adapting to changes in work scopes and juggling priorities within tight windows to achieve inspection objectives. Acuren is able to mobilize as many as 150 qualified technicians within 72 hours to meet client requirements. We track our performance and report weekly using our Site Level Metrics programs, and through client SAP, PRIMAVERA, ARIBA, ULTRAPIPE, VISIONS among others.
