Flare Maintenance - CR3 Group


Flare systems play a vital role in protecting refineries and petrochemical facilities by enabling them to be depressurised in a safe and controlled manner following an upset or emergency.

Hence, making sure the flare system is well maintained and fully operational is a key priority for all operators, particularly with it being a last line of defence against a major incident.


We have extensive experience of providing complete flare system revamps and maintenance services including construction, erection, inspection, cleaning, repairs, flare tip replacements, guy wire tensioning, dismantling and complete project management. Our combination of applying the latest equipment and multi-skilled technicians in a ‘blind to blind’ turnkey approach helps to minimise downtime and maximise returns.

In addition to having highly qualified rope access technicians (up to IRATA level 3) we provide drone inspections of flare systems and other inaccessible areas, like chimneys onshore and the airgap (between the underdeck and surface of the sea) on offshore platforms. Drone inspections enhance safety by eliminating the risk to personnel normally tasked with such jobs and save significant time, resources and cost. We have specialist structural engineering expertise for designing and certifying the latest lifting solutions. We can also work very close to online flares by using Hydro-shield technology, which provides a curtain of water, in the event of a live relieving case, to shield our technicians from the live flare and provide sufficient protection for them to retreat a safe distance before the flare lights.

To date, we have successfully performed numerous flare revamp and maintenance projects, both onshore and offshore, across the region and are uniquely positioned as one of the few companies capable of delivering multiple flare projects at the same time.


We continually invest in the latest tools and techniques to ensure we deliver optimal safety, quality and schedule efficiency. We minimise time and cost by having a multi-skilled workforce and a one-team approach that covers safety management, cleaning, inspection, structural engineering, heavy lifting, plus any repairs and all mechanical work.

Furthermore, our strategic partnerships boost our in-house capabilities, enabling us to provide turnkey solutions that are fully integrated for any project, of any size and make use of the most advanced technology available.
