3D Metalforge Pte Ltd, headquartered in Singapore, has announced that it has partnered with Par Pacific Holdings Inc (Par Pacific), a leading refining company that operates three US-based refineries with a total refining capacity of 154,000 barrels per day. 3D Metalforge is working with Par Pacific in Hawaii to identify a range of parts that will be suitable for production using 3D Metalforge’s Additive Manufacturing technology.

After successful field testing of the parts, and the expected adoption of API (American Petroleum Institute) standards, both companies plan to introduce AM parts into Par Pacific’s regular supply chain, initially in Par Pacific’s Hawaii refinery, before being expanded to the rest of the company’s refineries.

Matthew Waterhouse, 3D Metalforge CEO, stated, “We are thrilled to be starting this project with Par Pacific and having an opportunity to show how our additive technology can help refineries make their operations and supply chains more robust and sustainable.”
