To produce optimal oil output, the temperature of the equipment at BP Whiting Refinery must be kept within a specific range. As a result, the facility required winterization of key refinery components, including pipes, machinery, and others, to ensure continued production and reduce the possibility of a low temperature-related shutdown during the colder months.
The N.A. Logan team began by measuring the pipes, machinery, and other components that required thermal insulation and calculating the necessary insulation thickness to guarantee optimal performance. Then we removed and properly disposed of the existing insulation. Following removal, N.A. Logan installed Pyrogel XTE 10MM blankets and custom stainless steel jacketing—preventing the damage to pipes and pipe components that might otherwise occur in low temperatures. To finish the project, our crew performed tests to ensure the heat loss requirements were met and/or exceeded.
Our crew performed the needed services to achieve both high-quality results and cost efficiency for our customers.
