Thermaldyne Partners With Thompson for Plant Operations

Partnership Brings Benefits for Current and Future Growth

Thermaldyne, an environmental solutions company benefiting oil refineries, today announces its partnership with Thompson, a leading provider of construction, operations and maintenance and industrial services. Beginning Aug. 1, Thompson now manages operations for the Thermaldyne plant, located in Port Allen, LA.    

Thermaldyne utilizes innovative technology to reclaim oil bearing materials in a clean, proven and accepted process that separates oil bearing material into treated water, reclaimable assets and solids. Unlike traditional reclamation processes that are cradle-to-grave, Thermaldyne recycles not just the oil that comes through its doors, but also the water and catalysts, with a goal of 100% sustainable practices.

“We’ve worked hard to create a cradle-to-cradle approach for oil refineries in the Gulf Region,” states Randall Tolbert, CEO of Thermaldyne. “It’s partnerships like this, with Thompson, that will allow us to continue to find ways to redefine the oil refinery industry. We are excited to have Thompson on board to aid in operations, their track record is impeccable and what they can offer us in terms of future growth, both at the North Line plant and future recycling facilities, is invaluable.”

Through this partnership, Thompson will provide support with operations and maintenance for the Thermaldyne plant. With a focus on safety and compliance, Thompson brings a wealth of expertise to Thermaldyne, most notably in regard to its safety record and unparalleled programs for operational excellence.

“Thermaldyne has created a great deal of excitement in the oil and gas industry over the last few years as it worked to become operational,” states Greg Thompson, CEO and Co-founder of Thompson Construction Group. “We’re enthusiastic for the opportunity to partner with them for not only their current operations and maintenance needs, but also for the road ahead, which looks to be optimistic for this potential high growth company.”
