Pipefitters and Welders from the Northwest Ohio Piping Industry are playing a huge role in the biggest shutdown at the BP Husky Oil Refinery in 40 years.

Over 1,000 piping journeymen are spending more than two months working to replace valves, pumps, pipes, caps and other items necessary for the oil refinement process.

Shutdowns happen every three to five years at the refinery located in Oregon, Ohio, and generally occur for maintenance, safety, or processing purposes. This time around, the shutdown deals with more than just maintenance and safety. Portions of the extensive work will also add more efficient equipment to the process, which in turn, will help the plant save money and decrease production time.
