Vepica Group  a multi-national engineering, procurement and construction company co-headquartered in Houston, Texas, and Caracas, Venezuela – has chosen the Intergraph solutions suite for the Davis Refinery project, a high-conversion crude oil refinery to be constructed in southwestern North Dakota to serve crude oil producers and local liquid fuels and chemicals markets.

Refinery owner Meridian Energy Group selected Vepica based on its exceptional performance in engineering and permitting support for the Davis Refinery; the significant experience of Vepica personnel; and ability to simultaneously work the project from three of its main locations to provide efficient and cost competitive solutions.

For the Davis Refinery project, Vepica will use Intergraph Smart 3D work-sharing between its offices in Houston, Calgary, and Caracas, as well as integration with design tools via SmartPlant Enterprise. Vepica will use SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Electrical, and SmartPlant Instrumentation for the detail design as well as SmartPlant Reference Data and Intergraph Smart Materials for its entire materials management process during the initial phase.

Vepica CEO Derek Blackwood said, “The Intergraph suite of software has allowed us to efficiently bring together the capabilities and experience of all of our locations to deliver high-quality, on-time project deliverables to our clients at a highly competitive price, helping bring their projects to life.”
