Project Overview

Gas Plant Decommissioning & Demolition, Site Reclamation

Site Overview

This 65,000 square foot multi-building gas plant facility was constructed in 1958 to process raw gas in support of the underlying oil field. The plant ceased operations in 2004 due to decreasing gas production from the field. EnviroconĀ  provided comprehensive decommissioning and demolition and site reclamation services.

Project Highlights

  • Removed asbestos-based Thermal System Insulation from process piping and asbestos from cement roofing, wall panels, and tower insulation
  • Demolished distillation towers up to 85-feet tall, recirculation oil heaters up to 70-feet tall, four boilers, four engine compressors, concrete slabs, steel frame buildings, and all associated pipe racks and piping
  • Managed up to 80 personnel in six different active abatement and demolition areas at any given time
  • Removed and disposed of 3,700 cubic yards of asbestos waste at an approved off-site facility
  • Successfully managed the challenges of working with both federal and tribal oversight agencies and met requirements for local native labor employment on the project

Value Delivered

Envirocon successfully managed the challenging interactions with multiple stakeholders including the tribal EPA, OSHA, Office of Labor Relations, Business Regulatory Department, and local chapters with heavy political influence in the area. This included frequent interactions with these stakeholders while meeting the environmental, compliance, and safety requirements of the project.
