Watkins Upgrade, Denver, Colorado

On this project we installed over 11,000’ of 4/0 copper for a new ground system.  We also provided lightning protection for the plant.




Table Rock Processing, Rock Springs, WY

Cooling system upgrade.  On this project we supplied only minor material items for the installation of two (2) new VFD’s for operation of cooling fan motors.  We did all wiring and programming of the VFD’s as well as instrumentation for temperature transmitters.

Rifle Compressor Station, Rifle, Colorado

New compressor site.  We installed new MCC Building, switchgear, wiring, lighting, instrumentation and tubing for a complete and operable system.




Inlet Compressor Station 178, Snyder, Texas

This project consisted of installing and wiring a 5000hp electric driven compressor.  Pennzoil supplied the major equipment for this project, and we were responsible for installation and plumbing of the switchgear, the installation of high voltage cables, high voltage terminations and stress cones.  We also installed and did the  wiring on the soft start system required for this size compressor.

Balko Compressor Station, Perryton, Texas

New Compressors and New Building.  On this project, we were required to furnish all material, labor, and instrumentation.  We installed all electrical pertaining to compressor start up and shut down, transmitters, ESD system, building lighting and receptacles.  We also installed the flame and gas detection systems.



Keyes Compressor Station, Keyes Oklahoma

New compressor site. We installed new MCC, Automatic Transfer Switch, and Unit Control Panel. New duct bank
from Auxilliary Building to Compressor Building. Building lighting, receptacles, and fire and gas detection.  All
conduit, wiring and instrumentation for a complete and operable system.


Ordway Pump Station, Ordway Colorado

Worked in conjunction with Phillips employees to automate station with only a 5 day shutdown. Installed all
 conduit, wire, and instrumentation. Shutdown plant and installed new PLC cabinet and Remote I/O. Terminated
all wiring and brought station back online.

Borger, Texas Plant

New Infrastructure. Installed conduit and pullboxes and pulled in new fiber optic cable to each unit. Ran Cat 5
cable inside buildings from Hubs to all computer stations. Terminated Cat 5 cable.

Alarm Notification System, Borger Texas

Set 36- 50’ poles and 28- 20’ poles throughout the Borger Refinery for a new alarm system. Installed all speakers,
 solar arrays, batteries, battery chargers and radios. Worked with survey and all unit operators so as not to dig into
any existing underground lines. Set all 64 poles without any utilities being damaged.

High Voltage Upgrade – Chemical Plant, Pampa Texas

Pulled in 4-1600’ runs (no splices) of 15 kv cable through existing conduits and manholes from overhead
structures to 2- 1000 KVA pad mounted dual feed transformers. Performed all high voltage terminations.

Upgrade Compressor Sites, New Mexico Area

 Went to numerous sites throughout New Mexico for PNM and upgraded electrical systems at each plant to bring
them into compliance with the NEC and the API Recommended Practices. Also installed new control panels at 2
sites, and rewired controls and instruments to operate off of new system.

Emergency Generator, Guymon Oklahoma

Removed old existing MCC and all wiring and installed new MCC and Automatic Transfer Switch. Installed new
 500 kw Generator, pulled in new cables and made operable.
