Petroleum extraction and refining seem to be continuous material durability experiments. MEE has a strong reputation and in-depth experience in assisting the Petrochemical Industry with root cause failure analysis (RCFA). Our experience encompasses many types of material behavior and failure mechanisms in fixed equipment (tanks and piping) and rotating equipment (compressors and pumps). When a component failure shuts down your operation, let MEE help you understand the problem and extend the component life cycle.
