Project Experience

  • Renewable Diesel Conversion Project

    Jōb Industrial Services was approached to perform the OSBL portion of the conversion at a Rocky Mountain Region refinery. We developed FEL 1,2,3, and detail engineering for the OSBL areas supporting the processing soy oil. Provided design that included feedstock and finished fuel systems, as well as all utilities and firewater systems. This work included all aspects of engineering, multidiscipline from process, piping/mechanical, C/S, E&I. This required a considerable effort to route and utilize existing refinery equipment.

  • Perchlorate Injection Project

    Jōb industrial Services was tasked to improve the catalyst life of the ultraformer reactors. Jōb performed the piping and E&I portion of the project. It was in an extremely congested area and was a major coordination effort that involved refinery engineering, operations, and construction. Jōb procured the instrumentation and other tagged equipment for the project.

  • Propane Dryer Project

    Jōb industrial Services was contacted by a Western Region refiner to repurpose existing vessels within the refinery to replace current salt dryers that have reached end of life. This project involved extensive pipe design and vessel modifications.

  • FCC Relief to Flare Project

    Jōb industrial Services was chosen to perform piping, mechanical, pipe stress and structural needs of the scope of work in an extremely congested area of a Western Region refiner. The goal was to optimize routing to minimize new supports to avoid major excavation efforts. Jōb prepared challenging pipe stress model to compensate for tower growth of 4” at 700 F. FCC ARV’s were routed to flare header to eliminate atmospheric relief.

  • Building Siting Project

    The Jōb Industrial Services C/S department was hired by a Western Region refiner to develop a TIC to examine multiple buildings in or around process units. Relocation or refurbish near or in the process units, will be required to bring up to current blast zone requirements.

  • Cooling Tower Project

    Scope was to replace a wooden cooling tower that was several decades old and beginning to collapse at a Western Region refiner. Jōb was involved in the OSBL electrical & instrumentation as well as structural work. It was a critical project with extensive field investigation and required a lot of coordination with the cooling tower supplier.

  • UP Railroad Piping Replacement Project

    Jōb Industrial Services was contracted to eliminate above ground piping that was routinely damaged by vehicles on a bridge on a well-traveled road/highway. Jōb provided engineering and design and an underground solution to move product safely to the UP-Railroad fuel tank in Boise, Idaho.

  • Crude & FCC Wash Water Upgrades

    Jōb Industrial Services was awarded the detail engineering by a south-central petroleum refining company to modify the existing wash water system at the Crude and FCC units that provided additional water to the overhead heat exchangers to improve equipment reliability.

  • Turnaround Support

    Jōb Industrial Services provided a mechanical and electrical engineering team to assist a Western Region refiner with development Turnaround packages. Once completed, the packages were issued to the site contractors for execution.

  • Boiler Upgrades

    The main boiler plant at a Rocky Mountain Region refiner has been in continuous operation for many decades. It was determined that a major outage was necessary to change main steam header valves and piping. Jōb Industrial Services provided engineering and design support to the maintenance group responsible for the execution of the work.

FEATURED CASE STUDIES
  • Vessels Analysis for Stresses During Post Weld Heat Treat - Jōb Industrial Services was called upon to analyze vessels for stresses during Post Weld Heat Treat (PWHT). Items of concern were to prevent deformation/yielding the material, including internals; determine possible damage in the heating process; and determine if a crane was needed during PWHT.  Utilizing Ansys Software in both cases, we determined that one vessel… Read More
  • Process Engineering and Design for a Wastewater Treatment Plant - A client was having issues with volatile organic compound (VOCs) air emissions coming from the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) within their refinery. Jōb Industrial Services (Jōb) was contracted to evaluate the existing configuration of the facility and to design a solution to reduce air emissions to an amount significantly below their permitted limit. Jōb found that… Read More
  • Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU) Storage Tank Replacement - A used LPG storage vessel was modified and put into service as the sulfur tank for SRU#1 at the Cheyenne, WY, refinery, currently owned by HollyFrontier. Over the years, several repairs were made to that tank’s shell and internal steam piping. HollyFrontier determined that the tank should be replaced, due to concerns with tank integrity… Read More
  • Evaluation, Purchase and Initial Operation of an Idled Refinery - An interested party began evaluating the purchase of the idled refinery on the East Coast. The primary motive for such a purchase was to secure jet fuel production. A wholly owned subsidiary was formed in order to evaluate, purchase and operate the refinery. Outside expertise was engaged in order to quickly perform due diligence for… Read More
  • Sulfur Priller and Coke Material Handling Units Revamp Project - Owners of an idled oil refinery are in the process of a major restart. The start-up of the refinery is expected to process 200,000 bbl/day of crude with the primary objective to meet the demands of the low sulfur standard established by the International Marine Organization (IMO). As part of the refinery re-start, the coker… Read More
  • Crude Unit, Corpus Christi Project Hysys Modeling - Jōb Industrial Services recently performed extensive Hysys modeling in order to debottleneck a crude unit for a Gulf Coast refiner to gain an additional 10,000 barrels per day.  We created PFDs for the proposed system and developed a 50% TIC.   Scope of WorkThis included:Heat integration, booster pumps, an overhead compression system, increased steam capacity and… Read More
  • CAESAR II Pipe Stress Analysis - We were hired to design a new piping system that routes piping from four relief valves on top of the FCC Fractionator to a blowdown drum. Previously, these vented to atmosphere.  For the pipe stress analysis, the main challenges were the necessity of supporting the piping independent of the Fractionator; the installation of the new… Read More
