Oil and Gas, Petrochemical

Our work in the oil & gas and petrochemical sectors

Oil and gas currently supply three quarters of UK energy consumption and oil refineries will be needed well into the foreseeable future along with the continuing exploration of new oil and gas reservoirs. The potential of existing fields will also need to be maximised.

Our work in this vital global sector includes:

  • Revamp and refurbishment of Fluid Cat Cracker Units (FCCU)
  • Fabrication and installation of fired heaters and furnaces
  • Fabrication of modules
  • Turnarounds and shutdowns

An example is Ledwood won the EPC contract to upgrade overseas client’s FCC unit. Central to the upgrade was the fitting of the redesigned ellipsoidal head of the Spent Catalyst Regenerator together with a complete change-out of vessel internals. We engineered all new components and equipment including heads, cyclones and dip legs, ducting, piping structures etc and manufactured the new 450 tonne head at our own quayside facility in Pembroke Dock. All new equipment and materials were shipped direct in one movement to the overseas client. This was co-ordinated by our teams.
