Practical Efficient Technology

Preferred Engineering, L.P. (PE) is a full service engineering and design firm providing service to the petrochemical industry, with a focus on projects and plant modifications in existing facilities. At PE, our experienced technical personnel apply their training, experience, and industry knowledge to efficiently define, design, and execute projects. We work closely with our clients to safely meet project budget, schedule, design, and quality requirements.

Services provided by PE include: project planning, scope development, estimating, scheduling, engineering, design, project management, procurement, construction management, project auditing, safety management, field verification, and personnel staffing.


The Preferred Engineering advantage is enhanced by our utilization of the latest Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools available. If project objectives dictate using microprocessor based laser surveying and integrated 3D model CAD systems for piping accuracy, PE has that capability. When project objectives require field fabrication and fit up, PE may use a pencil and paper for piping design sketches to optimize engineering cost.

Preferred EngineeringThe utilization of automated estimating tools like ICARUS enables our staff to efficiently provide consistent estimates for our clients. As project objectives are defined, the PE project team incorporates the right CAE tool into the project plan to enhance accuracy and efficiency.

The key to practical efficient use of technology is to know WHEN to use it. PE project managers know the right questions to ask our clients at the beginning of a project. This alignment up front allows optimization of a project execution plan utilizing the appropriate CAE technology tools.
