Emergency Services. Brown & Root Turnaround Services provides on-call emergency services 24/7 for unplanned outages.  We provide an experienced team that mobilizes rapidly to repair your equipment, ensuring maximum safety and minimal downtime.

We have extensive experience in rebuild and reconstruction projects in response to catastrophic events – fire, floods, hurricanes, and other disasters.  This experience includes major refinery rebuilds:

  • Refinery rebuild in Eastern Europe, following the collapse of the vacuum distillation unit (VDU) tower.  We completed this $188 Million EPC project in 9 months (competitors’ best estimate was 24 months), with 1 Million+ manhours and no lost time incidents. 
  • Reconstruction of a SAT Gas/Naphtha Hydrotreater unit.  We provided emergency response mechanical services for demolition, reconstruction, and pre-commission of the units, as a subcontractor to the General EPC contractor.  We worked 390,000 manhours without a lost time incident.

And smaller, emergency rebuilds such as a $36 Million Fire Rebuild project in a K-4 recovery unit.  This 4-month, 120,000MH project involved 2,200 welds, 21,000 feet of conduit, and 340,000 feet of cable.  No lost time incidents.
