Almost every aspect of our lives depends on the chemical and petrochemical industries. From plastics and fertilizers, to insecticides to polymers, these industries provide the base chemicals and finished products that support our entire economy.

The processing plants that produce these chemicals and petrochemicals are large and expensive to build, and are often located adjacent to refineries that provide the raw petroleum feedstocks. While much of the new construction in these industries is done internationally, domestic construction is primarily related to expansions and modifications to existing facilities.

Because of the high level of complexity of these plants, disputes relating to delays, cost increases, and scope changes are common. Interface Consulting assists clients in evaluating these issues and others. Our consultants and experts have worked domestically and internationally on both new construction and expansion projects, including olefins, bioethanol, asphalt, and syngas plants.
