Downstream oil and gas clients have been facing a growing demand for ultra-clean products, and the implementation of new government mandates continually challenges them to execute cost-effective projects. All of this must be addressed while trying to maintain existing units and limit refinery downtime to maximize profitability. Benham provides a competitive advantage to our clients in the refining industry by applying our expertise and knowledge to refinery expansions, revamps, and grassroots installations.
Many of our projects have been revamps of units that have resulted in short-term payouts, resulting in improvements of a refinery’s profitability. We approach every project aligned with our client’s goals – lowering operating costs, increasing production and / or meeting regulatory requirements. In addition, our team is well experienced at execution of “brownfield” refinery projects. Benham understands the challenges in re-use of equipment and the special needs of revamp projects, while working around a turnaround schedule or in operational process units.
