3D Metalforge Pte Ltd, headquartered in Singapore, has signed an agreement with refining company Par Pacific Holdings, Inc., to supply a range of additively manufactured components, such as impellers, sleeves and similar parts, to Par Pacific’s three US-based refineries. This builds on the successful 2021 field trial with Par Pacific and, as part of the agreement, 3D Metalforge will begin working with the company to identify and produce a range of parts that will be supplied based on Par Pacific’s operational spare part requirement.

The agreement is said to represent an important step in expanding the current relationship with Par Pacific with a potential value of up to A$400,000 per annum. The agreement is exclusive, but there is said to be no minimum order value and the exact value of the contract will depend upon the operational requirements of Par Pacific during the period of the agreement.

“We are thrilled to have concluded a successful field trial and to be moving toward increased production with Par Pacific,” stated Matthew Waterhouse, CEO, 3D Metalforge. “We enjoy a good working relationship with Par Pacific and look forward to continuing to support their spare part needs and help make their operations and supply chains more robust and sustainable. Once this phase of the work is complete, we will discuss the possibility of placing a production centre at their refineries to further reduce the delivery time of parts and improve supply chain sustainability.”

The contract between the companies is binding until December 2024, whereupon it will be on a month-to-month basis.
