Knowledge And Performance (KAP) Project Services was founded in 2005 with the singular purpose of becoming the best project controls and project services provider in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. While its primary focus is on the planning, scheduling and cost control of shutdowns and turnarounds, KAP also helps its clients with routine maintenance and capital projects. KAP is a relationship-focused company and its services are always tailored to each client’s specific needs. Whether your organization needs the support of an entire team or only that of an individual to support your current staff, KAP can help.
“We are a small company with a big heart,” said Sandra Baucom, business development manager of KAP. “We strive to provide the best service to our employees and clients — rather than being a great big company that doesn’t know its employees and clients.”
Throughout 2013, KAP has been growing its engineering, procurement and construction business and actively working on turnaround, maintenance and capital projects throughout the refining and chemical industries. KAP has served many refineries with world-class turnaround staffing. For example, KAP’s recent Delek-Lion Oil Inc. project involved leading two refineries through major turnaround events, while bringing alignment between the facilities in the methods for preparation and execution of complex events.
KAP’s methodologies have been proven and refined through its extensive history of successfully executed projects for numerous clients in a wide range of project types and sizes. The company’s systematic approach to a project helps ensure its efforts fulfill the objectives and exceed expectations. This approach includes an initial assessment and alignment, implementation of agreed upon resources and tools, constant monitoring of execution and evaluation of the results upon completion.
“Our focus is not on becoming the biggest provider of project control professionals, just the best,” said Steve Pipkin, project manager for KAP. “Our experience and adherence to sound principles ensure the best outcome for our clients.”
KAP’s management team has extensive hands-on field experience, which allows them to understand firsthand the issues and needs KAP’s on-site personnel have, as well as the wants and needs of its clients.
“We take a systematic and methodical approach to each of your projects and events that ensure our efforts fulfill your stated objectives and exceed your expectations,” said Roger George, KAP account manager who is responsible for the Golden Triangle area. “Our extensive industry-specific experience in project controls in the process and energy industries sets us a part.”
KAP dedicates itself to developing the best event management software in the industry. The company’s integrated controls system increases the efficiency and consistency of the planning and scheduling effort, and provides relevant and timely information to the management team to help them make decisions that positively affect the outcome of the project. KAP has full-time programming and IT personnel who continuously work to improve software and customize it for each of their clients’ needs.
KAP attracts and retains some of the industry’s best personnel who are experienced, capable, safe and dedicated. Its recruiters and managers are experts at finding the best-fit personnel for your project needs. KAP employees are supported by its core management team comprised of seasoned veterans of industrial projects controls who average more than 20 years of experience.
“Employees hired by KAP have the skills and experience and fit in with the company culture,” said Edward Gonzalez, maintenance planner for KAP. “KAP provides regular feedback to employees on how they are performing as well as allowing the employee to provide feedback to the company.”
KAP will continue to look for opportunities to take the lead roles in organizing, preparing and executing major projects, turnarounds and building a team of employees who take pride in being among the best in the business.
