Supporting large-scale oil and gas projects worldwide
Portastor designs, manufactures, fits out and installs fully packaged modular equipment housings for oil and gas plants worldwide. We understand the challenging requirements of this industry, where plants and refineries are often located in remote areas and harsh environments. In these inhospitable locations where traditional construction is difficult and often impractical, factory-manufactured buildings from Portastor are the perfect safe, efficient, quality-assured solution.
Portastor buildings are deployed on operational sites throughout the oil and gas supply chain, from pipeline and transportation operations to refineries, downstream derivatives processes, LNG terminals,trains and storage sites. We know how to meet the most demanding specifications and provide safe, durable, protective buildings for the most sensitive mission-critical equipment.
Our buildings have been designed to protect essential equipment in environments ranging from the freezing wastes of Siberia to the heat of the Saudi Arabian desert, from the extremes of the Continental interior to the humidity of the tropics.
