Refining

We have a long history of delivering results to refineries of all sizes. Whether it is in the United States or around the world, our team has successfully helped refiners with their water and process treating challenges.

Complex Water Systems & Largest Refinery Experience
We currently treat some of the most complex water systems in the United States, including waste water. Our services ensure equipment reliability, plant optimization, and a low (or no) capital cost solution, which starts with a mechanical, operational, and chemical assessment. On the process side, we have extensive and successful experience treating diluted bitumen, conventional crude, tight oil crude, and heavy oil blends, including some of the world’s challenging crudes from Venezuela and Canada.

Our Approach Starts with a System Audit
We start by conducting systems audits and analyses, which include analyzing water and refinery process streams. This system assessment is performed by skilled on-site service specialists, field engineers, and subject matter experts, who evaluate what mechanical, operational, and chemical changes are needed to improve your production and equipment reliability.
