Multi-Discipline Engineering

Process Engineering Services

High-quality, fit-for-purpose process designs that keep your project on budget.

Avoid costly rework and stay on schedule with our flexible process engineering services

The process team is a core part of our multi-discipline engineering services.

Our chemical processing engineering group determines the fluid mechanics and industrial processing in plant designs for the oil and gas industry.

Our process engineers, sometimes also called chemical or manufacturing engineers, are involved at all project stages, from studies through detailed engineering. We work on pilot plant designs for start-up technologies, to large-scale brownfield and greenfield processing facilities.

Our engineering consultants have a wide range of experience providing efficient process designs. Our work typically includes distillation columns and unit operations at facilities that transform raw materials.

Common process engineering services include:

  • Multiple process systems and common equipment
  • Process simulation software (HYSYS, UniSim) and stream table development
  • Deliverables such as PFDs, P&IDs, DPDTs, datasheets, design calculations, etc.
  • Professional engineering stamp applied as required
  • Process studies and design documentation
  • Line sizing and pipeline hydraulic calculations
  • Instrument process specification and sizing of in-line devices
  • Project-specific process design basis

Process Engineering Services

Vista is a consulting engineering firm that provides cost-effective designs to owners and operators in traditional and emerging energy markets. We offer both chemical and process engineering capabilities. 

Process Engineering

We design engineering systems to move fluids or solids between one location and another. This is done while performing unit operations to enhance the value of those materials.

Example: in a conventional heavy oil battery, our process engineering designs use emulsion to get rid of all the gas. The designed system will cool the liquids, and then separate the oil and water before sending it as sales oil.

Chemical Engineering

We conduct regular testing and analyze the specific attributes of the materials being processed at the facility.

Example: in a traditional water treatment system, our chemical engineers will target specific contaminants that are bad for downstream operations. Then we design a water treatment system to specifically remove only the required contaminants. This could include silica removal using lime softening or multivalent ion removal using ion exchange downstream.

Quality is Everything

It’s not just about delivering high-quality process engineering designs – that’s a given.

At the end of the day, engineering services are really about transparency, collaboration, and relationships. You want a partner you can trust to keep your project on budget and schedule. We want clients to return because you see the quality of our relationship as much as the quality of the design.

Highlighted Projects

Vista’s engineering experience spans multiple decades and industries. Our highlighted projects document how we helped facility operators reduce project total installation cost (TIC) and total cost of ownership (TCO). They also explain how we’ve implemented complex new technology for emerging energy start-ups.

Multi-Discipline Engineering Services

Our process engineers work as part of a multi-disciplinary offering. Our integrated engineering team works together to find design solutions fit for your unique project. The engineering group also collaborates with our drafting and design services and project support teams.

Engineering Technology with a Purpose

It’s easy to get distracted by fancy new engineering technology. But it’s important to keep the focus on how each tool will benefit the project.

We’re a technology-agnostic engineering company and system integrator. That means we can deliver high-quality process engineering services with your preferred software or tools.

Our approach is simple, the technology must serve a purpose. Whether it’s laser scans and point cloud data or computer-aided design (CAD) applications and process simulation programs.

Have a specific need for an application? Our in-house development team is available to customize a problem-solving tool. For example, this video demonstrates how we collaborate on P&IDs in real-time.
