About KPE

KP Engineering (KPE) is committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations throughout each phase of your project by designing, executing and delivering customized EPC solutions, from concept to startup, with the utmost competency and efficiency.


The seasoned engineers and designers in KPE offices throughout the U.S. have decades of experience in the midstream, refining, chemical and syngas industries. Our multi-disciplinary teams provide a powerful and accessible approach to project management that brings your projects in safely and on-time, with optimal operability and cost.


A History of Excellence

KPE has strategically grown by not aiming to become just another large EPC company, but to bring what is unique about our company to a wider array of industries.   We have grown from our original refining focus to making a major impact in midstream and terminal markets, and from our original syngas expertise into chemical markets.  As we expand “horizontally” by widening our industry presence, we apply the same standards of excellence to each and employ the strongest, most experienced staff in all engineering disciplines.

In February 2004, former employees of Howe-Baker Engineers combined their technical expertise and experience to form KPE. They built the company to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services primarily to the refining and syngas markets. In 2013 we made our first diversification into the midstream sector.

In 2016 KPE acquired McDaniel Process Engineering Consultants, Inc. (“MPEC”), which helped strengthen the company’s technical expertise in refining and chemical process engineering. 

That same year KPE opened a new headquarters building in Tyler, and in 2018 doubled our Tyler footprint as we opened our second building next door.  We also opened our Houston office in 2015 and re-launched our Tulsa office in 2018.

Today, as the KPE team pursues projects of increasing size and complexity across various industries, we remain true to our original foundation of providing value-based EPC solutions for process plant projects at a competitive price, with safe, timely execution.
