When it comes to our business and the work we do throughout the industry, one of the main differentiators we like to focus on is the notion of the Catch Difference. This is the driving practice we embrace across the board that sets Catch apart in terms of quality of work, commitment to client service, and expertise in everything we do.
This heightened standard we hold ourselves to applies to every department and discipline here at Catch – including civil engineering, which is what we’ve enlisted the help of Scott Smith P.Eng (Catch Engineering’s expert civil engineer and 35-year industry veteran) to chat about today.
Oil and gas shutdowns are an inevitable part of operating a plant or refinery. From installing new equipment, to upgrading systems or performing routine maintenance, there are countless reasons why a shutdown might occur. But when they do, companies have a single top priority— ensuring a safe and successful plant shutdown so they can return to their regular operations as soon as possible.
To achieve this desired outcome the company has to conduct thorough and diligent maintenance shutdown planning. The success of the shutdown truly does depend on the planning process and there are many bases that must be covered before a plant or refinery halts its daily operations.
