Houston, Texas - November 19, 2012 - Citgo Refinery in Lemont, Illinois has chosen ACAD-Plus to migrate their legacy Drawing Management System to BlueCielo Meridian. Approximately 420,000 documents will be migrated from the legacy system. Citgo, as is true with all refiners, requires the use of “concurrent engineering”. This simply means that the same AutoCAD drawings are required to be used in multiple projects at the same time. ACAD-Plus has developed a methodology to facilitate concurrent engineering in these environments. The key to the methodology is maintaining versioning correctly between masters and specific project drawings.
The CITGO Lemont Refinery is a strategic supplier of transportation fuels, particularly in the upper Midwest. The refinery has a crude processing capacity of 167,000 barrels per day (bpd) and manufactures several grades of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and high-quality hydrocarbon solvents used in the production of paints, adhesives and coatings. The refinery has a long history of supporting the needs of the upper Midwest. The original CITGO Lemont Refinery was built in the early 1920s with a crude capacity of 25,000 bpd. During the years of 1968-1970, the new CITGO Lemont Refinery was constructed on 900 acres, partially located in Romeoville, Ill., with a capacity of 135,000 bpd. Additional expansion has brought the refinery to its present state as a modern, well-configured 167,000-bpd facility capable of refining heavy, sour crude oils into high-quality finished products. The CITGO Lemont Refinery benefits the surrounding communities, not only as a major supplier of petroleum products, but as a major employer, taxpayer and good neighbor.
