TriMas Corp. announced that its Lamons Gasket Co. has been awarded a contract for the Motiva Port Arthur Refinery Expansion Project in Port Arthur, Texas.
This contract calls for Lamons to supply all of the gaskets needed to complete the project, which is expected to require hundreds of different pipe-size and pressure-rated gaskets for the piping process.
"Lamons is very excited to be part of this major project over the next few years, especially since we have a local facility in Beaumont, Texas which can supply emergency requirements throughout the project duration," said Richard Owen, President of Lamons Gasket.
The Motiva Port Arthur Refinery Expansion Project is expanding the existing refinery's current capacity to more than 600,000 barrels per day (bpd), making it the largest refinery in the United States and among the top ten in the world. A joint venture of Bechtel Corporation and Jacobs Engineering Group is the prime engineering, procurement and construction contractor on the expansion.

It is the largest gasket supplier for the domestic petroleum industry and has maintained its market leadership through its premium products and superior customer service.
