Refining Capability and Experience


Worleyprovides a comprehensive range of refinery services backed by over 60years of global experience in grass roots, revamp and expansionprojects. To meet client requirements in today’s competitive world, wesupply innovative, cost-effective, and safe solutions.
We havecompleted 29 grass roots refineries including supporting utilitysystems, product terminals and offsite facilities ranging in capacityfrom 5,600 bpd to 400,000 bpd that produce a variety of productsincluding LPG, gasoline, kerosene/jet fuel, gas oil and heavy fuel oil,petrochemical naphtha, distillates, and lowsulfur fuel oil.
Worleyhas also provided engineering, procurement, and construction servicessince 1965 for more than 60 major refinery revamp, modernization, andexpansion projects in Australia, Korea, Bahrain, the United ArabEmirates, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Germany, the UnitedKingdom, Venezuela, Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
Worleyis a leader in designing solutions to meet clean fuels regulations thatnow face refiners around the world, including government mandates onsulfur, aromatic, and oxygen content of fuels. We have extensiveexperience with the two major types of clean fuels projects:reformulated gasoline and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD).
Worleyrecently completed three diesel hydrotreater projects to reduce dieselsulfur, including two grass roots units and conversion of
anexisting hydrocracker to a diesel hydrotreater. Gasoline reformulationexperience includes gasoline fractionation, benzene saturation forreduction of benzene in gasoline to meet CARB II and EPA Tier IIrequirements, catalytic reforming, cat cracker feed hydrotreating,selective hydrogenation units, isomerization units, butamer units,alkylation units, and FCC revamps.
From feasibility studies tofacility operations, we have the resources and capabilities to completeany refinery project using a variety of contracting approaches.
Manyof our clients benefit from alliance/partnering contracts with us thatuse integrated engineering teams that can deliver cost and schedulesavings compared to conventional project execution methods. Underseveral “umbrella” contracts with major petroleum refiners, we provideclients with a single source for the resources and technology needed tomeet the unique requirements of the operating refinery.
Of vitalimportance to this effort is the dedication and ability ofWorley employees who work hand-in-hand with refinery personnelto meet the project goals of the refinery's management.
