•The maintenance, repair, and overhaul of any equipment or facility is collectively known as MRO service.

•In the oil and gas refining industry, MRO services encompass turnaround and routine maintenance of the refinery process units. The scope of the study includes:
- Reactors
- Columns
- Piping
- Heat exchangers

•Electrical units, instrumentation, and rotary equipment are also a part of maintenance, however, they are not included in this study.

•Refinery captive power plants are out of the scope of this research service.

•The research service discusses the past performance, current trends, and future opportunities for MRO service providers in turnaround refinery activities.

•Segmentation of the study has been done on the basis of the size of the refineries:
- Large scale refineries: Output >X barrels per day.
- Medium scale refineries: X < output > X barrels per day.
- Small scale refineries: Output

•The study covers the refineries located globally, with the geography segmented as follows:
- APAC: The Asian-Pacific region includes the following countries–China, India, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Australia, New Zealand, and others*.
- Europe: Covering the entire European region with countries in the EU X along with Russia, CIS countries, Turkey, Albania, and Croatia.
- Americas: This region includes Canada, USA, and Latin American countries.
- MEA: Covering the Middle Eastern and African nations.

•Monetary unit used throughout this study is US$, unless specified otherwise.

•Pricing of MRO services is based on the cost of providing each of the Xservices: Maintenance, repair, and overhaul for the facilities. These prices do not include the prices of the spare parts.

•The revenue is defined as the value of the contract between the service providing company and the owner of the facility.

•Turnaround maintenance (TAM) revenue: The revenue calculation for providing turnaround maintenance services in the study is as follows:
- TAM price has been taken to be X% of the average refinery construction cost.
- Total refinery capacity undergoing TAM has been calculated as a percent of total refinery capacity in a given year; this has been taken to be X%.
- The product of the TAM capacity and the TAM price gives the TAM revenue.

•MRO services classification:
- Breakdown maintenance: This is the traditional maintenance service provided wherein the broken down equipment is restored to its working form.
- Preventive maintenance: This activity is undertaken to avoid any future breakdowns. It is further classified into –

•Turnaround maintenance: Planned shutdowns to increase the life span of the unit and prevent any failures during operation is termed as turnaround maintenance.

•Routine maintenance: It is usual maintenance work carried mostly by in-house personnel.
- Predictive maintenance: The equipment is inspected and analysed to predict its life expectancy and thus schedule preventive maintenance activities to avoid any breakdowns.

•All MRO activities are handled in-house, except for turnaround maintenance.

•Three tiers of companies are involved in the overall maintenance of a refining facility –
- Tier I: These are the process licensors/OEMs and the point of contact for the facility owner. The process licensors are the companies that have provided the design and technology for the facility. OEMs are companies that have acquired the rights to develop patented technologies. These are usually globally operating conglomerates.
- Tier II: This category comprises of Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK), EPC contractors, and consultants. While the LSTK and EPC contractors provide the services with their technical expertise, the consultants provide outside support during the turnaround maintenance activities. Their geographical reach expands to many countries.
- Tier III: These are the local maintenance companies for the third and the last tier of the process. These are the companies contracted by the tier II companies to provide maintenance and construction services, as well as engineering and procurement in some cases. Their geographical presence is local and limited to small value contracts.

•Basic units of a refinery are:
- Crude Distillation Unit (CDU) – The first step in a refinery is the distillation of the crude oil into rough fractions that undergo further processing.
- FCCU (Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit) – This process converts heavier oils into lighter products. Gasoline, heating oil, fuel oil and other important components are produced at this stage.
- Diesel Hydro Desulphurisation Unit (DHDS) – DHDU is used to reduce the sulphur content in diesel for environmental purposes.
- Sulphur Recovery Unit (SRU) – The SRU is used to recover Sulphur from the refinery streams.
- Merox – Mercaptan oxidation process deactivates the mercaptan sulphur compounds. It is used to treat gasoline, LPG, and heavier fractions.
- Demineralisation unit (DM) – These units provide the mineral-free water required for refinery processes.
- Effluent Plant Treatment (ETP) – The effluents must be treated before released from the facility according to the environmental regulations. Discharge unit uses ultrafiltration techniques to reduce effluent discharge levels to zero.

Turnaround maintenance (TAM) of refinery units:
•TAM is performed every X to X years. The shutdown lasts for about Xto X days, depending on the size of the facility.
•The present condition and life expectancy of the unit is assessed to determine the amount of work required during the shutdown.
•OEMs and process licensors recommend routine catalyst maintenance activities. The process licensor is engaged in catalyst filling recommendations. Catalyst filling can be a part of LSTK contract or an individual contract.
•FCCU reactors & regenerators and Hydrogen Unit Reformers require special contractors due to their complexity. EPC contractors and OEMs are usually preferred for this activity because of their experience.
•Routine maintenance of the refinery units are carried out according to the OEM's or process licensor's recommendations.
•Most of the routine maintenance works are done by in-house professionals however some companies outsource this activity for a few units, for instance, zero discharge unit and demineralisation unit, to service providers.
•MRO service opportunities mostly exist during turnaround maintenance.
