CUI Programs

CUI programs have been included in facility operating programs for more than 25 years. Apache has experienced program managers and craft personnel who understand the complexity of executing projects on in-service assets along with the safe planning and budgeting efforts involved. As a team member with expertise installing multiple types of  insulation systems, depending on service and circumstance, we bring a solutions-based thought process when addressing CUI programs.

Heat Tracing

Apache will run steam or electrical heat tracing for piping when specified, properly size and fit rigid or mat insulation, and leave drops for connection to systems.

There are cold insulation requirements for piping and equipment, and then there are cryogenic requirements for piping and equipment. LNG facilities require complex cryogenic insulation systems for piping and equipment. Apache understands the challenges of sub-zero applications and the importance of verified and documented installation performed by a qualified workforce.
