Marathon STAR

Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery

Marathon STAR project, located at the Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Texas, is expected to add 40,000 barrels per day of crude capacity. The integration of Marathon’s former Texas City Refinery with the nearby Galveston Bay Refinery created a single world class refining complex with crude refining capacity of 585,000 barrels per calendar day.  Epic Piping successfully delivered the project consisting of 17,000 pipe spools including: carbon, stainless, chrome and jacketed stainless materials. The fabrication included over 650,000 Diameter Inches (DI) of welding and over 4,000 tons of total weight with pipe diameters ranging from ½ inch up to 42-inch pipe. The delivery of the pre-fabricated pipe spools was strategically sequenced to support the various construction work package priorities in a duration over a one (1) year period.  Epic received a letter of appreciation and support from the Marathon STAR project executive team for the superior quality and on-time delivery.
