ONQUEST TO DESIGN KHT HEATER
FOR MARATHON AT CANTON REFINERY
Second Win of Furnace Retrofit after Success at Marathon Garyville
Los Angeles, CA (August 28, 2012) Marathon Petroleum Co. L.P., has chosen San Dimas, Calif.-based OnQuest, Inc. to provide engineering design and procurement for the retrofit of the kerosene hydrotreater heater (KHT heater) at Marathon's Ohio Refining Division in Canton, announced OnQuest's president & CEO Randy Kessler today.
OnQuest is a world leader in revamps and retrofits of combustion units used in various applications in the chemical and petrochemical refining industry. The company won the Canton project in early July after conducting an on-site review and appraisal of the KHT heater earlier in the year, recommending a retrofit that would replace the supports in the radiant and convection sections and the coils in the convection section.
"This win at Marathon Canton follows our successful retrofit for the company at its massive Garyville facility in Louisiana," said Kessler. "It reflects Marathon's confidence in OnQuest's technical expertise, our deep familiarity with these types of heaters, and our success rate in effecting revamps and retrofits in tight turnaround times."
OnQuest will provide procurement and supply services alongside the engineering, and will oversee the retrofit.
