Oil and gas industry issues are among the highest profile topics globally. No matter what the economic conditions, the growing global demand for clean, affordable energy takes more than sound policy. It takes innovation, and it takes the ability to follow innovation with execution.
Our global leadership stems from decades of proven performance on more than 3,000 assignments in more than 40 countries. We provide services from consulting, design, full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC); and start-up of LNG import and export facilities, FLNG, gas processing and NGL fractionation, sulfur, gasification, and ammonia/fertilizers.
Cost-effective, safe, on-time delivery is part of our execution track record.
Our knowledge, capabilities, and innovation include our proprietary PRICO® technologies. We also have alliances with technology providers to offer turnkey solutions for gas-to-liquids (GTL), ammonia, and fertilizer needs. These technologies enable projects to be completed with greater quality and efficiency for our clients.
Our consulting starts with a keen understanding of our clients’ business goals, models and interests. We help them assess and choose tailored solutions that are best for their businesses. Our market analysis and regulatory insights covers enterprise asset management, risk management and strategic planning. The value chain spans natural gas and natural gas liquids, midstream, wholesale markets, power generation and utility segments.
Low-Cost Solutions, Across All Technologies, Increasing Efficiency and Capacity.
With increasing demand for ammonia, fertilizer plants worldwide seek the lowest cost solution to increase their capacity, operability, and energy efficiency. Black & Veatch’s 80+ years of experience covers all commercial ammonia process equipment and technologies.
Our completion of more than 50 projects involving ammonia plants demonstrates our leadership in the industry. We’ve completed many new plants and revamps for our Clients ranging in size from 50 to 2,500 metric tons per day.
From feasibility studies to plant startup, Black & Veatch understands your specific business drivers. We use that knowledge to tailor the right FLNG solution for your business.
FLNG facilities provide more flexibility and enable the monetization of assets through liquefaction of natural gas in remote areas. They reduce development costs and time from schedules. FLNG solutions are also being considered for exporting near-shore gas reserves or gas from an on-land pipeline network by locating the LNG production facility near shore.
Black & Veatch converts biomass, municipal solid waste, coal, heavy oil, oil sands, oil shale and petroleum coke to high-value, clean products.
We perform feasibility assessments for gasification, syngas processing and synfuels production. We help select the best technology for specific feed and product requirements. Following technology selection, we provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for reliable, safe facilities.
Beyond the large, baseload LNG export facilities, LNG is now being used extensively to provide clean fuel directly to homes, industry and vehicles in many countries.
An industry pioneer, Black & Veatch was involved in many of the world’s first LNG facilities in Algeria and in the United States in the early 1960s. In the early 1970s, Black & Veatch developed the PRICO® single-mixed refrigerant process for LNG using a cost-effective design that covers a broad range of LNG plant capacities.
We consistently meet cost, schedule, performance and environmental objectives for sulfur recovery clients. We keep our commitments to lowest life-cycle costs and operating reliability and have superior operating plant references.
We are the world leader in the design and construction of sulfur recovery units and related sulfur management facilities. Our design-to-construction experience covers the complete range of sulfur recovery applications:
