Overview

The naphtha hydroeawter (NHT) unit uses hydrogen to remove unwanted chemicals such as sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen from gasoline. Superior Construction worked on this project to facilitate BP to meet a mandate from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that gasoline has less than 10 parts per million of sulfur, reduced from the standard 30 parts per million. We installed more than 5,000 CY of foundation concrete, as well as a new storm sewer system. The concrete foundation included rebar installation, and the new storm sewer system including excavating and backfilling various trenches, as well as installing new manholes and catch basins.
