A Midcontinent refiner needed to balance operating flexibility, capacity requirements, and Tier III compliance objectives in regard to gasoline processing
In order to ensure optimum project guidance and definition, KPE provided extensive process study and scope development during the front end engineering phase. After multiple design iterations and scope discussions with the client, a Naphtha Splitter Unit was chosen as the desired option. KPE was successfully able to lift and set the 215 foot long splitter tower in one piece. The splitter, which is around 15 feet in diameter, weighed an estimated 860,000 pounds.
Due to KPE’s concept-to-completion capabilities, we were able to provide project development as well as EPC services for the project.
