Why We Need Refinery Decontamination and Cleaning
Fouling and corrosion are always going to occur at process treatment facilities. Regularly scheduled and restorative treatments were initially developed to facilitate shorter shutdowns between cleaning, but personnel and environmental safety is now a priority. Odor management and safe removal of hydrocarbons, hydrogen sulfide gas, and pyrophoric iron sulfide are essential.

Some of the frequently asked questions about refinery decontamination and cleaning include:
Is refinery cleaning mandatory?
Yes. To meet regulations governing oil and gas operations, refinery cleaning is a necessity. “Production (is) regulated by each of the 33 oil- and gas-producing states.”
Is working in a refinery dangerous?
Gulf Coast refineries do everything possible to maximize safety for refinery workers. Refinery cleaning and decontamination is important because protecting our health, safety, and environment is everyone’s business.
Some of the risks of working with flammables and toxins in a refinery setting include:
- Acids exposure
- Air pollutants
What do I need to know about refinery maintenance?
Plant maintenance is vital to the Gulf Coast petrochemical industry. Petrochemical professional Johan Claassen says there are two kinds of maintenance: proactive and reactive. Obviously, reactive maintenance is more costly in terms of money and time. “The best time to conduct refinery maintenance is sooner rather than later,” says Claassen.
Challenges faced by refineries include:
- Developing/establishing predictive maintenance processes
- Lack of effective/accurate refinery maintenance record-keeping and historical data
- Maintaining performance data before and after cleaning for reference
- Retaining skilled maintenance personnel
What is degassing?
To reduce the steam-out time (and refinery downtime), a chemical agent is added to the steam line during the vapor phase. The chemical is biodegradable and can be managed by wastewater treatment facilities.
