Since 2002, EPI Engineering has been providing analysis and optimization services for the refining and marketing, chemical processing, petrochemicals, exploration and production, gas processing, pulp and paper, power and utilities, and food processing industries. Up until 2009, EPI Engineering operated as a fully-owned subsidiary of EPCON Software, a leading developer of engineering software products for fluid flow simulation, thermophysical properties, and physical property components.
Due to the success of our optimization services, EPI Engineering was spun off and incorporated in 2009 in order to provide a greater range of engineering services aimed at the reduction of energy consumption and the improvement of safety and compliance. Senior EPCON executives gave all EPCON employees the opportunity to invest and own a piece of EPI, and today we are proud to say that we are majority owned by EPCON Software employees. This is a clear indication of the special bond shared between EPI and EPCON.
Since 2009, EPI Engineering has flourished while conducting over 100 individual optimization projects. It is estimated that during this time we have saved our clients over 100 million dollars in unneeded capital expenditure, energy efficiency improvements, and increased facility production with no capital investments required. We recently completed our most successful project at a petroleum refinery where we increased the production of the facility by 7 million dollars per year. The exceptional measure in this particular project is that the one-year, return on investment (ROI) our clients will realize is 150:1.
The most popular service we provide is our Pipeline Network Optimization (PNO) services aimed at increasing the safety and efficiency of plant and refinery utility and process systems. When optimizing the flow of these types of systems, we find an array of improvement opportunities that would have not been possible without the technology and expertise provided to us by our sister company EPCON Software. We also provide flare header, PRV, and fire water system analysis and optimization services, along with general engineering services including system walk-downs and regular flowmeter testing/system monitoring.
We believe in the motto, “The work isn’t done until the job is done right and the customer is satisfied with the results,” and if you were to speak to our clients, you would find that we really do live by our motto.
