Market Overview

Petroleum refining processes involve transforming crude oil into marketable end products for a variety of industries. As an infrastructure-dependent industry, refineries need proper electrical and automated systems in place for efficiency in output and processes. The enormous rise in demand for energy across the globe requires the construction of refineries that are optimized to ensure productivity and profitability.

Engineering Capabilities

Vista draws on its decades-long experience with facilities engineering design to provide a wide range of capabilities to the refining industry. We provide extensive consultation on how to best implement cost-saving initiatives and enhance long-term refinery profitability.


Gasification processes convert low-value feedstocks (biomass or other fuel sources) into marketable products, like syngas. It’s a clean and reliable way to monetize low-value feedstocks to produce high-quality end products.

Hydrocracking Plants

Hydrocracking is one of the most common methods of producing products like kerosene, naphtha, or jet fuel from the components of heavy oil. Hydrocracking plants usually combine two processes, including hydrogenation and catalytic cracking, to convert feedstocks into valuable end products.

Residue Upgrading

Residue upgrading processes help refiners monetize their operations. Hydrogen is added to refined residue to produce high-quality, low-sulphur products.

Integrated Service Offering

Vista offers clients a comprehensive integrated engineering solution. Our in-house project engineering capabilities include a multi-disciplinary engineering team, drafting and design, full project services support and ISO-certified quality assurance program.
