Refining Solutions With Cost Certainty

Refining Solutions With Cost Certainty

Caught between decreasing demand, restrictive regulations and new fuel standards, the refining industry faces an uncertain future. Burns & McDonnell can help you survive in today's ever-changing market.

Our high-performance refinery project teams don't provide textbook solutions for the oil & gas downstream industry. We solve unique problems with creative ideas that save you money. We keep a sharp eye on costs, just like an owner would. Open-book, guaranteed maximum price contracts, with cost underruns returned to the client, are a part of our project execution.

Award-Winning Performance

Our work has been recognized outside the refining industry. The low-sulfur gasoline project for ConocoPhillips in Ponca City, Okla., was honored with a national Excellence Award from the Design-Build Institute of America. Our projects also have been recognized nationally by the American Council of Engineering Companies.
