Gasoline Blending Improvement
A large refinery initiated an aggressive fast-track project to install a second blending system in order to increase the plant's blending capacity. The goal of the project was to utilize outsourced blending agents designed to lower the vapor pressure of its component pool for the production of a high-octane blended product. This client selected Valdes Engineering Company to be part of the project from a design, procurement and installation standpoint. This successful injury-free project came in ahead of schedule, under budget and in time to meet the demands of the impending gasoline season.
Valdes' multi-discipline scope for the detailed engineering included project management, process engineering, piping design, equipment specifications, civil/structural design, instrumentation, electrical engineering, detailed cost estimates and project schedules.
