Ethanol Blending Project
The major oil company’s South Portland Terminal was upgraded to facilitate side-stream blending 10% denatured ethanol into three grades of conventional gasoline (premium, mid, and regular) with the capability to convert to reformulated gasoline. The upgrade involved converting the existing marine offloading facility and two gas tanks to ethanol service as well as the installation of a new custody transfer truck offloading system to provide an alternative ethanol supply method. The terminal was also provided with the facilities and capacity to load denatured ethanol trucks.
Oil & Gas Facility Compliance & Assessment
The project involved a risk assessment on crude oil pipelines, a pump station, and facilities in Yinchuan, China, by using the API Risk Management Methods from API Publ 353 for the risk assessment and risk mitigation of crude oil gathering facilities associated with the Huianpu and Yinchuan Pipeline facilities in China. The goal of the risk assessment was to identify high risk facilities and components and develop and screening/ranking of risk mitigation measures for high risk areas.
Liquid Overfill Risk Assessment Services
Collected field data for analysis and conducted interviews with facility operations and control center personnel to run the Liquid Overfill Risk Assessment Tool (LORAT). Provided facilities operations with multiple mitigation barriers to meet with the company targeted risk category for each tank analyzed. Prepared and submitted LORAT summary reports.
