HOUSTON, TX —Atlanta based PIC Group has partnered with B&W Energy Services to execute critical services on two existing petrochemical facilities’ cogeneration expansion projects in the U.S. B&W was extended the opportunity by PIC to support pre-commissioning of the two major facilities in Flint Hills, MN and Ponca City, OK, respectively.
For more than 60 years, the Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery has played a major role in producing transportation fuels used throughout the Midwest, including most of Minnesota’s gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. The 339,000 barrels per day refinery is undergoing a major combined heat and power (CHP) project to improve efficiency of steam production and reduce electricity purchases from the grid. B&W’s role in the project is to design and execute chemical cleaning, steam blows, air blows, AquaLazing and lube oil flushing on the new Pine Bend CHP systems to help ensure trouble free startup.
In Ponca City, OK, Continental Carbon produces professional-grade industrial rubber carbon black, tire carbon black and specialty carbon black. Their facility is also undergoing a major cogeneration upgrade to recover energy derived from the plant’s production process and convert energy to electricity. This will eliminate Continental Carbon’s reliance on the grid, and further reduce their emission footprint on the environment. B&W will execute several pre-commissioning services including lube oil flushing, chemical cleaning, AquaLazing and steam blowing on the new cogeneration project.
“We greatly appreciate the opportunity to team up with PIC Group once again on two strategic projects aimed at increasing efficiency and reducing environmental impact,” said Joel Babin, COO of B&W Energy Services. “B&W’s expertise in both the power and petrochemical sectors makes us uniquely qualified to support these important expansion projects.”
