2015 Petromidia Refinery Turnaround

Rompetrol Rafinare

42.7 million USD

Turnaround of Petromidia Refinery, as well as the petrochemistry division operated by Rompetrol Rafinare, was performed between 11th of October and 20th of November 2015.

2015 Turnaround was planned, managed and performed by Rominserv, with the support of 44 partner companies. Almost 4.000 people were involved in this project.

Additional work safety measures were taken, in order to ensure the security and the zero accidents target. Furthermore, all subcontractors active on the Petromidia platform during Turnaround were fully trained. Turnaround has guaranteed full corrective and preventive maintenance of equipment and the technical inspection of the plants, which are required to keep the refinery operating at its rated capacity.

This turnaround posed difficulties and challenges for which Rominserv engineers managed to identify and apply solutions in time and with expected outcome: replacement of a 45 to heat exchangers at over 50 meters, completion of one diesel tank revamping using special lifting procedure of the entire tank, solution in MHC unit for the Breech/ Lock heat exchanger, adapting the necessary pieces to create a tight seal between the shell and the inner tube.
