Location: Whiting, IN

The Whiting Refinery FGR Project included the installation of 150 Auger Cast in Place Piles and 69 Pile Caps to support new piping systems from all of the existing Flare Stacks to the new Flare Gas Recovery Unit. This complex OSBL project required extensive communication, cooperation and coordination with six of the existing continuously operating units within the refinery. The project demanded limited access equipment with capabilities of working adjacent to operating equipment, live power systems and other processes. This included the installation of 90 foot deep ACIP piles under live power lines and live piping systems with only 25 feet of head room.
