Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery Fender Replacement

Location: Linden, NJ
Owner: Phillips 66
Completion Date: November 1, 2017
Categories: LNG, Liquids & Petrochemical Terminals

Weeks Marine was contracted for the demolition of 6 fenders on Steamer Dock 1, replacing them with 12 new independently supported fenders. This upgrade allows larger Panamax class oil tankers to dock at the refinery. The project team worked 24 hours per day during specific window timeframes occurring in between ship deliveries to complete the project ahead of schedule and under budget.

Several innovative construction means and methods were implemented to enable the project team to demobilize equipment for incoming ship deliveries, on short notice and to ensure active work components did not affect oil tanker offloading and safety.  Consistent communication and coordination between Phillips 66 and Weeks Marine was critical in maintaining continuous refinery operations while enabling the project team to work efficiently and complete the project one month ahead of schedule.
