Refinery Report – August 2021

Marathon Refinery – Wilmington

There are still several unfilled journeymen wireman and apprentice calls out to Marathon Refinery to work for Schultz Mechanical. The requirements to take a call at Marathon for Schultz have changed for this work. Members only need to have a receipt for having signed up for the TWIC Card to take the job call. Once a member takes the refinery call out to Schultz at Marathon Refinery, the member must report to Schultz. Then the member can sign up for the RSO20 course at OSCA that same day to enroll in the 20-hour RSO20 course.

While the member’s background check and hair follicle test for Schultz is in process, the member can attend the 20-hour RSO20 course. Once the tests and check come back clear, the member will have completed the RSO20 course. Our members can hit the ground running with all the necessary qualifications and certifications. Projects at Marathon Refinery are slated to continue through the end of this year with possible overtime!

Valero Refinery – Wilmington

Schultz will also be in need of more journeymen at the Valero Refinery in the third quarter of this year. Members will need the RSO20 training card and the TWIC card to accept a job at the Valero Refinery.

PBF Refinery – Torrance

Herzog.

World Energy RefineryParamount

The work at World Energy is here! This refinery was formerly Paramount Petroleum and was bought out by World Energy and is now being completely revamped. Our IBEW Union Contractors, California Spectra Electric, and Newtron Electric, have been awarded the first of many contracts for much of this very fine work inside of World Energy Refinery. The first contract will require both of our electrical contractors to hire IBEW Journeymen, Certified Instrumentation Technicians, and IBEW Apprentices for the newest contract. You will need the RSO20 training card and the TWIC card to take a call out to World Energy Refinery.

As the third quarter and fourth quarters in the refineries approach, work in many other refineries will also becoming. Many of our other contractors working in the refineries are looking to acquire much-needed manpower in the winter months of 2021. So please stay current with the RSO20 training card and please keep your TWIC card current.
