BP Coker Whiting Refinery

Project Overview

In order to modernize the nation’s fifth largest oil refinery, British Petroleum began its $3.8 billion project to bring the Whiting Refinery on the shores of Lake Michigan up to industry standards and secure its long term viability. This upgrade brought the capacity to produce an additional 1.7 million gallons of gasoline a day.

Baker performed 46,600 cubic yards of concrete for the refinery’s six-drum coker foundation. The entire scope included structural steel; coker pit and mazes; pipe racks; heaters; pump and tank foundations; paving; underground utilities; and seven separate piping systems.
