Bilfinger Tepsco Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Bilfinger SE, offers full-service construction capabilities and turnkey project solutions. Whether the project involves complete civil, mechanical, electrical or instrumentation construction services, Bilfinger Tepsco can do it all. The company provides its services to customers in the refining, petrochemical, gas processing and pipeline industries.
Bilfinger Tepsco has been successfully completing projects for Enterprise Products in Mont Belvieu, TX, since early 2000. The company has been involved with Enterprise’s fractionation expansion project since January 2010 and has handled the outside battery limits (OSBL) work on five of Enterprise’s fractionation units in Mont Belvieu. OSBL work is typically complicated and fast-paced work and includes jobs such as installation of pipe, compressors, pumps or meter stations.
“Bilfinger Tepsco has handled the OSBL work for Enterprise on Fracs 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8,” said Mike McCleskey, program manager for Bilfinger Tepsco, who oversees all the capital work involved with Enterprise. “We’ve assembled more than 8,000 tons of steel and 300,000 feet of pipe on these frac units. In addition, we’ve poured over 6,000 cubic yards of concrete, made more than 400 tie-ins and set approximately 300 pieces of equipment from tanks to meter skids. At the peak, we had more than 500 people on this project at one point.”
For 13 years, Bilfinger Tepsco has been providing its services for Enterprise from Mont Belvieu to Cushing, OK, and all points in between. Waseem Srouji, director of project management/capital projects for Enterprise Products, has been working with Bilfinger Tepsco for four years and said the company is in Mont Belvieu constantly.
“Bilfinger Tepsco meets Enterprise’s schedule and is on budget, and their safety performance has been good,” Srouji said. “Bilfinger Tepsco also tends to take its work personal in a good way. Their project managers take the work with Enterprise to heart and they want to do a good job. It’s not just about getting more work and that goes a long way. The same applies to the construction managers out there. They maintain a great relationship with Enterprise and I believe we’ll have a long-lasting relationship. I would highly recommend Bilfinger Tepsco.”
According to McCleskey, Enterprise recognizes Bilfinger Tepsco’s ability to adhere to Enterprise’s project schedule with safety and quality as the priorities.
“Anywhere Enterprise wants us to go we’ll go,” he said. “We always manage to make the completion dates and we perform the projects safely. We develop a construction plan to execute the project in a manner that will meet the Enterprise schedule. Bilfinger Tepsco brings value to the table with its turnkey project capabilities.”
