Benham Oil and Gas Market

Our clients build and maintain assets along the entire oil and gas value chain. And each one also has very different methodologies and needs. They need a service provider that can right size a project whether handling crude oil, natural gas, products or feedstock working in the oil patch or in the midst of an operating refinery process unit; adhering to a strict set of standards or starting without any standards at all. Benham understands that our oil and gas clients have an enormous challenge to maintain aging facilities, accommodate the growing demand for products, and implement the latest government mandates. Our services and collaborative project approach helps our clients focus on what’s important to their business.

Simply stated, our service offerings span from the well head to the product terminal, providing integrated services to the hydrocarbon production, processing, and transportation industries. We offer

single-point responsibility for projects that range from strategic planning and conceptual design through the full project life cycle. Our services include engineering, procurement, and engineer-procure-construct (EPC) DesignBuildSM project delivery. Our comprehensive approach and dedication to quality, safety, and cost-effective solutions can provide significant benefits to our clients. Our solid track record of completing retrofits, revamps, expansions, debottlenecking, and unit additions gives us a unique skillset and techniques to enhance efficient and safe project implementation.

Our upstream oil and gas clients have been facing yet another tumultuous time in the industry after experiencing record setting growth. With crude oil and natural gas both at historical lows, hard decisions have to be made, and increased efficiency is the name of the game.  This means our production clients are continuously challenged to execute cost-effective, fast-paced projects. Benham accomplishes this by developing designs that allow for equipment re-use, anticipating future needs, incorporating value engineering and providing full engineering, procurement and construction services. Whether there is a need to augment staff, explore integrating new technologies to increase production efficiency, help an organization comply with regulatory mandates, or develop a project that has a quick ROI, we have the experience and know-how to help our clients reach a solution.

Our midstream clients are challenged and scrutinized more than ever before to process and deliver feedstock and products in a cost effective and safe manner across land, waterways, and in our communities.  Our clients must be able to focus on what’s critical to their success, and we provide solutions to achieve these goals.  Benham has designed new facilities, as well as modifications, expansions, and revamps of existing facilities including storage tanks, liquid and gas processing facilities, pipelines, and loading / unloading facilities for trucks and rail cars. All of these facilities incorporated over-fill detection and spill containment, emergency shutdown, fire detection, fire suppression, and access security. 

Pipelines and storage facilities handling chemicals and various hydrocarbons typically require considerable zoning and permitting. Our professional engineers provide our oil and gas clients with the necessary drawings and application paperwork to assist them through the process.

Downstream oil and gas clients have been facing a growing demand for ultra-clean products, and the implementation of new government mandates continually challenges them to execute cost-effective projects. All of this must be addressed  while trying to maintain existing units and limit refinery downtime to maximize profitability. Benham provides a competitive advantage to our clients in the refining industry by applying our expertise and knowledge to refinery expansions, revamps, and grassroots installations.

Many of our projects have been revamps of units that have resulted in short-term payouts, resulting in improvements of a refinery’s profitability. We approach every project aligned with our client’s goals – lowering operating costs, increasing production and / or meeting regulatory requirements. In addition, our team is well experienced at execution of “brownfield” refinery projects. Benham understands the challenges in re-use of equipment and the special needs of revamp projects, while working around a turnaround schedule or in operational process units.   

Downstream Capabilities

  • Fluid catalytic cracking unit revamps
  • Crude and vacuum units
  • Gas recovery and fractionation
  • Flare systems
  • Biofuels
  • Hydrotreating
  • Alkylation
  • Sulfur removal
  • Steam/cooling water
