Kuwait Petroleum Europoort
Project: Stakeholder management, impact studies, gaining permits for modernization refinery
Location: the Netherlands
High end stakeholder management to modernize refinery
To compete in the petroleum business, refineries should be up to standard and flexible. Kuwait Petroleum Europoort (KPE) wanted to invest in the modernization of the refinery. But this project has a lot of high interest stakeholders. From employees and labor unions to port authorities and environmental agencies. The project has increased public awareness after recent incidents as well. So all impact studies needed to be topnotch.
Bilfinger Tebodin helped KPE with authority management and coordination, permit applications Wabo and Water Act + EIA, nature protection, flora, fauna and all environmental and external safety studies. Intensive dialogue with client organization, high involvement of senior management, transparency and experience were key success factors with this assignment.

Project: System for recurring environmental reporting in Oil and Gas industry
Location: United Kingdom
Efficient and high quality environmental reporting
Oil and gas production facilities need to report their environmental impact on a regular basis. Many have company owned systems in place to do so. Together with IBM, Bilfinger Tebodin developed “Environmental Reporting as a Service” (ERAS). This service configures and maintains the software and hardware needed for recurrent reporting. Once the system is implemented, the ERAS service consists of processing primary data from the operations and returning the desired environmental reports, for example on a monthly basis.
Oil and gas companies no longer need their own system for reporting. They can focus on more important processes in the organization. It is more efficient too. Investments for keeping the software up-to-date is no longer of their concern and pricing is consumption based. Lower costs and better reporting with ERAS.

Project: New coating production facility at existing site
Location: Moerdijk, the Netherlands
Building new factory before formal permits
In order to expand the capacity of coating manufacturing for the marine, container and tank industry, Choguku needed a new facility at the Moerdijk site. Downtime of the existing production facility had to be avoided. With the municipality Moerdijk a “Letter of Intend” was agreed before the formal permits were obtained in order to start the construction as soon as possible.
Bilfinger Tebodin helped with authority management, permit applications Wabo and several studies on noice, air, soil and external safety (QRA). The good relations with authorities with proper planning and trust led to the permission to start building before the official permit. Bilfinger Tebodin undertook the conceptual and basic engineering of the factory itself as well.
