MISTRAS uses our decades of downstream asset protection expertise to support safe operations in refineries and petrochemical plants.

Crude oil is the basis for some of the most common and essential products in our everyday lives, including some that many people have never even considered.

Beyond just processing and refining crude oil to turn it into transportation fuel, the downstream sector of the oil & gas industry is responsible for producing many of the plastics, cosmetics, and textiles that people across the world use on a daily basis.

MISTRAS successfully supports some of the largest downstream refining and petrochemical companies in the world, helping to make their operations safer so they can continue providing us with the products we need.

Asset Protection for Downstream Refineries

After crude oil is transported through pipelines, tankers, and rails and stored for processing, MISTRAS’ refinery clients turn it into usable products, such as gasoline and diesel fuel.

MISTRAS helps to support these operations by providing our specialized inspection, consulting, maintenance, monitoring, access, data management, and equipment solutions. We offer these solutions as individual services, or as part of integrated, customized, evergreen asset protection programs.

  • Hydroprocessing
    • Ultra clean fuels
    • FCC pretreating
    • Catalyst technology
    • Other applications

Asset Protection Solutions for Petrochemical Plants

MISTRAS also supports clients in the downstream petrochemical industry, after the byproducts of the refining process are sent to petrochemical plants for further processing. We support clients who use a variety of feedstock olefins and aromatics, including but not limited to:

  • Ethylene
  • Propylene
  • Butadiene
  • Butylene
  • Benzene
  • Toluene
  • Xylene

These chemicals are used to manufacture products such as adhesives, kitchenware, tires, asphalt, credit cards, and a wide range of other products that people use every day.

As the products used in petrochemical plants can be hazardous and highly-corrosive, MISTRAS provides asset protection solutions that help to maximize safety for on-site personnel.

We assist our petrochemical clients in developing and implementing Process Safety Management (PSM), Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), and risk reduction programs, along with providing customized field inspection and monitoring programs that keep clients informed of their assets’ conditions at all times.
