The Matrix Service Company has announced that BP has renewed its contract with subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc., as the preferred maintenance contractor for its Cherry Point refinery through 2020.
"We are extremely proud of our relationship with BP at their Cherry Point refinery," said Matrix Service Company President and CEO John R. Hewitt. "Long term relationships are central to the values that drive us."
BP's Cherry Point refinery is the largest in the state of Washington and third largest on the West Coast, processing approximately 230 000 bpd of crude oil.
Matrix Service has provided onsite maintenance, capital project and turnaround work at the refinery for more than 20 years and its employees, some of whom worked for companies previously acquired by Matrix, have been onsite even longer.
Matrix currently has 250 people onsite at the Cherry Point refinery, although those numbers increase dramatically during planned outages.
