Energy

Oil and Gas

Orion has executed engineering projects across the energy spectrum, from upstream offshore platforms to downstream refining. The size and scope of projects range from smaller tasks, such as sizing a relief valve to managing entire plant upgrades and expansions. Orion’s portfolio of energy projects includes work with leading companies in the energy industry such as Genesis Energy, Shell, Hunt, BP and Chevron.

Midstream Energy

Orion Engineers & Constructors has assisted the midstream energy industry with process and detailed designs on numerous rapid delivery projects. Our team has completed engineering services for storage and transfer projects, including rail, barge, and truck loading & unloading facilities.

Rail loading and unloading facilities include secondary containment features that are monitored to eliminate impacts to the environment. Truck facilities include state-of-the-art custody transfer stations that continuously monitor the loading and unloading processes to minimize clients’ financial risk caused by untracked or lost shipments. Orion’s terminal projects have been served by high capacity pipelines that gather and distribute carbon‑based products from new and familiar resource regions. The engineering services for these projects completed by Orion include the civil and structural designs of the facility infrastructure, hydraulic design of the distribution system (pumps and piping), electrical design for power delivery systems, instrumentation design to control and monitor metering, and custody transfer of the oil assets.  Our combined construction document delivery package is generated on an accelerated basis to support the fast-paced, customer-oriented nature of the midstream energy industry.

Power Generation / Distribution / Reliability

Many of our clients have power-critical processes requiring extreme care and consideration in the design of the power generation and supply, distribution and reliability. Orion’s engineers are experienced in developing engineering solutions to meet these requirements for green field, retrofits, and upgrades to existing facilities. Our portfolio includes the completion of two large-scale projects for a major plastics manufacturer involving the upgrade and replacement of the plant uninterruptible supply and emergency generator automatic bus transfer equipment.

Orion’s expertise to design and specify power generation and distribution equipment, includes but is not limited to:

  • Control Systems
  • Distribution Cabling Systems
  • Generators
  • Grid Connectivity
    • Automatic / Manual Bus Transfer Equipment
    • Switchgear
    • Generator Step Up Transformers

Alternative Energy and Conservation

Orion understands the importance of energy conservation, sustainable design, renewable energy and achieving a practical balance with realistic applications. Our multi-step approach involves identifying opportunities to capture the most benefit from existing or readily available resources through use of proven energy management systems, facility energy reduction, and construction materials and methods.

Orion analyzes the available and best case solutions utilizing proven technologies for each application. Subsequent steps of our approach seek to identify renewable energy components with the potential to provide realistic benefits to the project. Selection is based on stand-alone, subsidized, or other installed cost-mitigated business cases.
