Trust the Team with Experts in Refinery Retrofits

From catalytic reforming to system hydraulic modeling, Hargrove is adept in a wide range of professional technical services for the downstream petroleum industry. Our team works with you to perform and oversee small- and large-scale retrofit projects in the petroleum refining arena. We align with your phased process and turnaround-driven project planning methods to bring capital projects from concept through startup.

Our refining experts are well-versed in all Unit Operations found in a downstream operation, with specific expertise in fluid catalytic converter (FCC) units, crude units, hydrogen and hydrocracking, debottlenecking, product recovery, and process improvements. We use key project indicators, tracking tools, and consistent reporting and reviews to communicate project status and gain alignment with your team so there are "no surprises." Using the latest technologies and best practices enables us to mitigate risks and deliver quality assurance.

Hargrove teammates know the importance of adhering to safe work procedures, refinery-specific design standards and specifications, and proven construction practices. Our relationships with refineries are founded on successful implementation of projects from technology selection and early front end loading (FEL) through construction management, startup, and execution of a well-planned turnaround. We have the process expertise, equipment engineers, piping and 3D modelling designers, procurement professionals, control system integrators, and project managers with the refining experience to ensure your program of projects — no matter the size — meet our production, optimization and compliance goals.

Meet today's challenges in refining operations while equipping your refinery for the future with Hargrove as a trusted partner by your side.
