NEW “GRASS ROOTS” PROCESS UNIT
Provided multi-discipline engineering design and project management for a new, grass-roots 8,000BPD Propane Deasphalting Unit (PDA) unit at a Refinery to separate asphaltene components from higher value oils. The unit utilizes KBR’s Residuum Oil Supercritical Extraction (ROSE®) process technology.
Wink developed a full front-end engineering package with purchase-quality specification on long-lead equipment items, followed by detailed design in all disciplines; procurement; and field construction support.
Also designed a propane storage facility to support the new PDA Unit, including new propane storage bullets. Provided detailed design (mechanical, electrical, instrumentation/controls, civil, and structural) for the storage bullets; pumps and piping; and a truck unloading system.
LIGHT CRUDE TERMINAL
Provided comprehensive EPC Services for the installation of a new storage, loading and unloading terminal associated with Eagle Ford Shale production. Scope of work included:
- Three 55,000 bbl crude oil tanks
- Two 10,000 bbl firewater and slop oil tanks
- Eight truck unloading racks including unloading pumps and LACT units
- Three barge loading pumps
- Air compressor
- Power and control building
- Oil/Water separator
- Natural gas conditioning system
SOUR GAS CONTAINMENT
Provided engineering and detailed design for the process, civil, structural, mechanical, and piping for a new sour gas scrubber. Services included equipment specifications and data sheets to purchase a new caustic storage tank, two new caustic pumps, four new knockout drums, a new scrubber, two new scrubber pumps and a new heat exchanger. The piping included numerous utilities that needed to be routed to the new unit.
Detailed design and engineering for the equipment foundations including pile design and area paving, piping design services using scanning and 3-D technology for the entire unit and the 12-inch relief valve header in existing piperacks. A new piperack was also designed and drafted as part of the scope of work. Also provided piping design for 56 relief valves to the 12-inch header.
Provided front end engineering and detailed design engineering services for a project to expand a terminal located in Louisiana. These improvements include the addition of 8 storage tanks providing an additional 1.6 MM BBLs capacity for gasoline and distillate products.
The project includes a new gasoline blending facility, seven internal floating roof storage tanks for gasoline and naphtha, a new firewater protection system and electrical infrastructure for the new equipment.
It also includes a new renewable diesel blending facility, including one fixed roof storage tank. Products will be received from barge, pipeline or truck and shipped via pipeline.
FCC SLURRY STRIPPER
Provided front end development and multi-discipline detailed design for modifications to the main fractionator in a Refinery FCC unit, to allow for the recovery of additional, higher value LCO from the low value slurry stream off the main fractionator bottoms.The project increased LCO production and decreased slurry production by approximately 900 BPD, and gave the refinery the option to recover more distillate range product to the HDS or directly to diesel blending.
Some of the major equipment in this project included:
- New Slurry Stripper vessel, including internals and platforms
- Main Fractionator 10” nozzle addition (TAR)
- Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger (steam generator)
- Two (2) new slurry product pumps
- Nine (9) new piping systems
- Controls and instrumentation system
Provided process engineering; detailed mechanical engineering, piping design and drafting, including extensive stress analysis; structural engineering and design; electrical and instrumentation design and engineering; survey and laser scanning in support of the development of a 3-D model; project management, and project controls.
REFINERY HYDROGEN UNIT
Completed front-end engineering; developed a ±10% Total Installed Cost estimate, and performed multi-discipline detailed design and project management for demolition, site preparation, and the Outside Battery Limits (OSBL) facilities required to support a new Hydrogen Unit at a Refinery in McPherson, Kansas.
Scope consisted of:
- Demolition of tanks and piping
- Site preparation, grading, drainage, roadways
- New foundations, structures, and piperacks
- Approx. 28,000 lf of new piping, and90 piping tie-ins
- Utilities: steam, BFW, instrument air, plant air, Nitrogen, condensate, natural gas, and firewater
- Electrical (new 35kV switchgear, electric power, UPS, emergency power)
