50 Unit Flare Stack

For this project, PMI pre-assembled the flare stack on the ground and provided welding services. We welded the flare sections together, attached ladders and platforms, and installed gas and steam piping on the ground.

The 300’ tall flare was then erected in three sections in an around--the-clock operation.

Our ironworkers installed new piperack steel and fitters installed 26,000 linear feet of piping in preparation for the tie-ins.

Over 200 tie-ins were made along with commissioning of the flare during a tightly scheduled unit shutdown.
