LETTER FROM THE EDITORS
hink about the last home project you tackled. Maybe the AC unexpectedly
went out or you finally decided to repaint the living room. Hopefully you were able to plan and prep for the work and safely finished in a decent amount of time. Now, take that project, amp up the stakes by
1,000% and you’ll get an idea of what our turnaround crews deal with day in and day out. In a best-case scenario, a team begins planning months or years in advance on the repair or replacement to be performed at the client’s site. Because time-down equals revenue-loss when a client’s unit is down, time is of the essence. This means work must be performed safely in a compressed amount of time, usually around
the clock. In this issue you’ll get insight into what it takes to plan and
execute successful shutdowns, turnarounds and outages and hear
first-hand from our employees on what it’s like to be on the front line.

THE LATEST & GREATEST SAFETY UPDATES FROM AROUND THE COMPANY
Turner Employees Recognized for Outstanding Work at Ascend Performance Materials Pensacola, Fl. – Three Turner employees at Ascend Performance Materials have been recognized with a safety award for their outstanding work during an unplanned event. Insulators Angel Ramos, John Moran and Francisco Montero, part of Turner’s onsite SIPA (Scaffolding, Insulation, Painting and Abatement) group were called out one weekend to remove insulation in preparation for the event, which was to start the following Monday morning. The crew arrived onsite immediately after being called out and began working. Nylon Plant Shift Supervisor Patricia Baggett describes what happened that day: “I was genuinely surprised at how fast the crew arrived. Angel was very thorough with the pre-job walkthrough, marking every piece that needed removing, and discussing job safety: i.e. AB identification, low pipes, etc. He made certain to point out hazards that I myself may have overlooked, such as uneven walking surfaces and hot piping. He was genuinely concerned for my safety and it showed.” 4 SUMMER 2019
“The job was completed in an impressive amount of time. Angel called me for the final walkthrough to close out the permit. We went to the roof, and I was again impressed by how clean the crew had left the area. They even cleaned up old insulation and some other trash that had been left over from previous work. He walked every step of the piping and equipment to be assured that we both agreed that the job had been completed correctly and that the area was left in a safe condition. During the final walkthrough, he reminded me of the same hazards as before when we approached the uneven roof surface, hot piping that we were walking by, and the slip hazards that existed from standing water in a low area. Angel demonstrated professional leadership qualities and pride of ownership. I feel that his attitude towards safety and the actions of this team should be rewarded for a job well done.” On May 29th, the site held a safety celebration luncheon where Angel Ramos, John Moran and Francisco Montero were recognized for their accomplishments.

Ascend Safety Day in Texas Chocolate Bayou, Texas – Each year Ascend holds a Safety Day at their Chocolate Bayou facility. Throughout the day, site personnel and contractors participate in games and demonstrations relating to safety. There is also a parade, in which Turner employees decorated a cart with the theme “Hazards Don’t Take Vacation.” Turner organized several games with prizes and had lots of giveaways. In one of the games, a person is trying to perform a task while wearing “drunk goggles,” making the person feel impaired. This was an example of the hazards of performing work activities while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Turner also had a station demonstrating—with the use of shaving cream—how easily chemicals can spread when not cleaned correctly. SUMMER 2019 5

Projects & Services Turner Industries Completes Massive Scale Pipe Fabrication Project Turner Industries’ Port Allen pipe fabrication facility recently completed a 2,751-spool project for Bechtel and Shell Pennsylvania Chemicals. While this is by no means an extraordinary spool count for a pipe fabrication project, the content of the spools certainly is. 152 of the spools ranged in diameter from 52 inches (OD) through 120 inches (OD) and collectively weighed 1,617 tons. The largest spool was 120 inches (OD) and weighed 197,000 lbs. The longest spool was 80 inches (OD) and 127 linear feet long. Also required on the project was a 5-piece mitered elbow completely fabricated by the shop from 114" diameter pipe. Most of the spools were delivered to the client by truck, but 14 of the spools were so large they had to be shipped to their final destination by barges. The almost two-year long project was a collaborative effort between Turner’s fabrication facility, coatings facility, modular yard, and the equipment division. Under the leadership of Fabrication Shop Superintendent Patrick Thibodeaux, and Turner Modular Yard Superintendent Robert “Red” Fogleman, a specialty fabrication bay was set up at

the modular yard to fit and weld large laterals, wyes and oversized spools. Scaffolding was put in place to allow for safe accessibility. A large tent was installed at the coatings yard to accommodate the coating of large spools. Turner’s
Transportation Group, under the leadership of Manager Gary Blacketter and Project Manager John Adams, provided the necessary Goldhofer transporters required to move the large pieces from the fabrication facility to the modular yard for NDE and stress testing, then to the painting facility for coating, and ultimately back to the modular yard for barge loading. Because the Mississippi River levels have been unusually high, barge travel proved to be exceptionally challenging. However, the first barge arrived safely in Pennsylvania after a month-long delay and the second barge is en route. As with all work performed by Turner Industries, safety always comes first, and this large project was completed recordable free. “This project provided Turner another unique opportunity to broaden our horizons and prove we have the capabilities to provide first-class products and services, no matter what challenges the job brings,” said Project Manager Stephanie McCarley.

shutdowns, turnarounds & outages
How Turner Industries Safely and Successfully Keeps Our Clients Up and Running.
urnarounds are a challenging necessity and reoccurring reality of operations for clients and contractors alike. Turnaround preparedness requires a complex web of planning, scheduling and hiring to ensure the proper repair, maintenance, or replacement of equipment at a client’s facility while maximizing safety and minimizing downtime. Assets and productivity are on the line—as well as millions in client revenue.
In addition to the extensive planning needed, executing a turnaround requires finding innovative solutions to meet turnaround challenges. At Turner Industries, we work diligently to assist our clients with their needs. Our “One Solution for Your Success” motto turns into quantifiable results when we hit the jobsite. Our turnaround teams are designed to be scalable to any

shutdowns, turnarounds & outages Featured on our cover are three employees who have made successful careers working in the turnaround group at Turner. While taking the cover photo, we had the opportunity to ask them a few questions. Here is what they had to say:
Justin Horton – Turnaround Project Manager TGS/SWS Years with Turner: 12
As a project manager, what is the most important part of completing a successful event? The people, hands down. We handpick our employees and they are some of the best skilled crafts you can find in the industry. I’m proud to call them my co-workers and feel comfortable taking on any turnaround at any site knowing that we have the capabilities and knowledge to pull off a successful event. How do you keep your team motivated and engaged during a turnaround? I believe a hands-on approach is best. Being out in the field, talking to the employees and getting to know them on a personal level. Giving credit where credit is due and recognizing employees who go above and beyond is important, and if someone is underperforming, we try to understand why and figure out a way make them successful instead of just terminating someone. We make sure our employees have the tools and equipment to do their job safely and effectively. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to do a job and not having the right equipment to do it. What technologies or innovation in the last five years have helped execute a turnaround? Computer technology has come a long way in helping to manage turnarounds. From real-time updating in the P6 schedule to 3D model reviews. Planning packages have also come a long way over the years. We can now access all the information we need with the touch of a button instead of spending hours manually sifting through documents.
Abrina Dennis – Turnaround Cost Manager TSG/SWS Years with Turner: 5
What is the most challenging aspect of your job? Forecasting costs and staying on budget can be challenging due to the complex budget structures associated with turnarounds, but we pair our experience with advanced software solutions ensuring accurate cost tracking and budget reporting during all events. What do you enjoy most about turnaround work? I enjoy the challenge and excitement of working at different sites and learning the various cost systems within each site.
Jake Savoy – Safety Manager TSG/SWS Years with Turner: 10
Because of the changing nature of turnarounds, how do you ensure a consistent first-class safety record? I am proud to say that we have one of the best safety records in the industry. Even with the challenges of moving from site to site, we have a strong safety culture that follows our team wherever we go. Management support is vital, and we have it. Their support allows us to implement new tools and technology available to make our worksites safer by working towards hands-free methods and elevating our PPE standards. What advice would you give others looking for a career in heavy industry? Our industry provides a wide variety of career opportunities without necessarily having to take on the burden of increasing higher education costs. I have a Professional Aviation Degree that has no direct effect on my position, but it did help me develop skills of organizing which I use when directing our safety group. As long as you are willing to put forth the effort, there is no better time than now to secure a successful and rewarding career in the industrial construction industry.

OXEA 2019 BuOH Spring Turnaround
ucked away 60 miles southeast of Houston in the sprawling town of Bay City lays OXEA Chemical Facility, a family-oriented facility with strong values and principles of safety and quality. For their 2019 BuOH Spring Turnaround, OXEA was looking for contractors with similar values and goals. Originally set up to be a multi-contractor event, Turner Industries, “One Solution” approach proved to be a more efficient, cost-effective way to perform the event. The scope included work on towers, drums, vessels, exchangers, pipes and valves. Even with a ten percent scope increase during discovery work, Turner completed the turnaround on schedule with zero OSHA recordables. The turnaround was led by Turner’s Turnaround Services Group and supported by:
• Turner Specialty Services (TSS), which provided catalyst services, hydroblasting, vacuum trucks, bundle extraction and drone service. • Turner’s SIPA group, which provided scaffolding, insulation and painting services.
• Turner Specialized Welding Services, which provided alloy welders and pipe fitters. • Turner’s Pasadena Pipe Fabrication Facility, which assisted with pipe fabrication. • Turner’s Crane and Rigging Group which provided all cranes from 100 Tons down to the 6 Ton carry-deck.
“The success of this event is rooted in Turner’s ability to pull different groups together and provide a seamless event for the client. We would like to thank OXEA’s management team: Fred Gaytan, Lauren Willard, Butch Sneath and Lynette Lowrance, for giving us the opportunity to show what we can do and making us part of your family. You truly made us feel like one of your own. You have a great team and I wish you all the best as OXEA continues to grow,” said Turner Project Manager Justin Horton. “I was apprehensive about using only one contractor for this turnaround because of the complexity; however, because of the experienced resources Turner Industries was able to provide, the results were very positive. There is no doubt that we selected the right company. I hope to continue our business partnership with Turner Industries in the future,” said OXEA Bay City and Bishop Site Director Fred Gaytan. “Turner Industries performed even better than we had hoped. They definitely are a strong company and are led by solid leaders – their pride for their company shines in their work,” said OXEA Maintenance and Reliability Manager Lauren Willard.

he Shell Norco Manufacturing Complex (NMC) recently wrapped up one of the largest and most complex turnarounds in the history of Shell Norco—the culmination of two years of planning. As one of the main contractors, Turner was tasked with adding 500 employees to complete the event. Led by the turnaround services group, Turner’s scope included work on units across the refinery, performing work on piping, exchangers, reactors, valves, electrical and instrumentation. As with many events of this size, the turnaround group faced challenges during the event such as discovery work, scope changes, and inclement weather conditions. However, the group was able to overcome and adapt to all issues
while staying on schedule and completing the event safely thanks to the dedication and leadership of Arthur Blount, Ronnie Gongre and Jamie Roberts.

2019 FOOD DRIVES Record-Breaking Food Drive in Pasadena, Texas The Pasadena office food drive wrapped up as the most successful to date. 47,699 lbs. of food and drinks—more than double the amount of last year's drive— were delivered to the Pasadena Community Ministries Food Pantry, which serves families in Pasadena, Deer Park and La Porte, Texas. This year's drive yielded an abundance of water, so it was decided to donate four pallets of water to Habitat for Humanity. In turn, Habitat for Humanity is helping the food pantry to store some of the food collected by Turner Industries and our employees because the food drive collected more food than the food pantry itself could store! This year, in addition to the Turner office complex in Pasadena, nineteen sites in the Houston area participated in the event, the largest number ever.
26 SUMMER 2019
During the event, a raffle was held yielding $5,627, which was used to purchase food for the pantry. “Our employees have certainly raised the bar with the food drive donations received this year. What started in 2014 with 700 pounds has grown into a substantial event that truly makes a difference in our communities. The 2019 food drive with 47,699 pounds is a true testament of our employees’ generosity, giving back to those less fortunate. A great effort by all. I am truly proud of our TEAM Turner,” said Vice President Mack Hayes. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one who helped, donated food, and volunteered their time to this great cause. What an amazing effort!
