New “Grass Roots” Process Unit



Provided multi-discipline engineering design and project management for a new, grass-roots 8,000BPD Propane Deasphalting Unit (PDA) unit at a Refinery to separate asphaltene components from higher value oils.  The unit utilizes KBR’s Residuum Oil Supercritical Extraction (ROSE®) process technology.

Wink developed a full front-end engineering package with purchase-quality specification on long-lead equipment items, followed by detailed design in all disciplines; procurement; and field construction support.

Also designed a propane storage facility to support the new PDA Unit, including new propane storage bullets.  Provided detailed design (mechanical, electrical, instrumentation/controls, civil, and structural) for the storage bullets; pumps and piping; and a truck unloading system.
