Davis Refinery Design Update
The Davis Refinery, an ultra-modern 49,500-bpd full-conversion refinery being built in Belfield, North Dakota, has extended the front-end engineering and design (FEED) phase of its initial refinery. This will allow its engineering team to further develop the digital footprint and operations technologies that will define its cutting-edge operations, resulting in a projected 2022 start-up date. This continuation of design has allowed us to further develop the refinery for The cleanest and the smartest Davis Refinery Design Update By Mark Fonda better efficiency and cost. It has also allowed us to enhance our environmental technology such that we are even more confident that the Davis Refinery will be the cleanest refinery on the planet. Our core team of highly qualified and motivated engineers has continued to investigate state-of-the-art and best available control technologies (BACT). We intend to provide a plant which will have a minimum footprint in terms of sight, sound, and smell. We are also committed to using only proven, established technology to better ensure performance and reliability. A foundation for this performance is the use of digital technology which will enhance our ability to monitor, control, and optimize operations. This will not only provide greater assurance for safety and environmental compliance, but will also enhance long-term profitability and sustainability.
