WorleyParsons’ modular experience encompasses some of the world’s most hostile and remote locations including the arctic regions of Alaska, Canada and Russia, the dense forests of Colombia, Saudi Arabian deserts, and the remote Australian coastline.

WorleyParsons has provided innovative and first-of-a-kind modular solutions to solve the unique challenges associated with our customers’ projects in remote locations and harsh environments.

Our modularization experience began in 1961 with a single skid-mounted, 10 tonne-per day sulphur recovery plant; the first of many designed and built as package plants for customers throughout the world.  We followed this with the modular design for a 22,000 barrels per day (BPD) grassroots refinery in Alaska, beginning our long involvement with North Slope modular facilities which continues today.

Since these early days on the North Slope, WorleyParsons has expanded its modular capabilities to include the design and installation of facilities for upstream oil and gas processing, downstream refining, mining and minerals processing, and chemical industries in over 30 countries.

WorleyParsons combines its offshore design capability with its onshore Very Large Module (VLM) expertise to optimize module size and density. This approach results in smaller, more economical module footprints, and in some cases, increased logistics benefits. WorleyParsons also combines its proven EPCM track record and extreme environments and remote locations experience with its specialist in-house skills to provide customers with cost effective, innovative modular solutions.
