Oil, Gas & Petrochemical
R&M are very active within the refining and petrochemical markets and have a long track record in supplying oil, gas & petrochemical sites both in the UK and overseas with hazardous area equipment, with our experience extending to both on-shore and off-shore supply projects.
We have a vast range of stock of materials and supplies for our clients in the Petrochemicals sector within the UK at our Southampton and Swansea branches, and throughout our International Divisions (please see our Divisional Pages for more information). R&M also offer extensive project management facilities and experience through our internationally recognised Projects Division.
We hold many long term supply agreements with operators such as BP, Exxon Mobil and Texaco Chevron encompassing the ongoing supply of flameproof, hazardous area and industrial electrical equipment and cables to onshore production and refining facilities both in the UK and overseas.
For over 18 years we have held the prestigious Exxon Mobil MRO contract (Maintenance, Repair & Operations) covering Fawley Refinery one of Europe’s largest refineries and also hold contracts with Valero at Pembroke and overseas with BP in Azerbaijan. The experience that we have gained in supplying the OGP sectors for over 20 years has allowed us to develop alliances and distributorships with many of Europe’s leading specialist manufacturers whose products are specified and installed on refineries across the world.
We are able to advise on the best use of modern technology incorporating the supply of energy saving products particularly in the field of lighting as well as providing maintenance friendly equipment that sometimes avoids the need for hot-work permits when isolating equipment for routine maintenance. In terms of value added services we provide site specific cataloguing and can assist in carrying out site survey’s providing product standardisation across your plant and also assist with replacement of obsolete electrical equipment.
Our sales engineers have proven experience in assisting with the specification of flameproof and hazardous area equipment for the petrochemical industry, we can also assist with lighting design and in partnership with our manufacturers can provide installation training for much of the equipment that we supply.
In support of our petrochemical business we also populate, drill and assemble Ex junction boxes, enclosures and control stations in-house under license from several leading manufacturers including Eaton Crouse-Hinds (CEAG) and Weidmuller. This allows us to offer excellent lead times for our clients’ bespoke Ex d and Ex e junction box and control station requirements – for more information please visit our R&M Assembly pages.
