Fluor booked the contract in the fourth quarter of 2018
Fluor Corporation has announced that it has won an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Halliburton Speciality Chemicals Manufacturing Reaction Plant in PlasChem Park, Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
The Texas-headquartered company said in a statement that the new chemicals facility will produce a wide range of speciality chemical products and intermediates to supply both the upstream and downstream oil and gas production industries. Its scope includes EPC as well as commissioning.
“Having completed the front-end engineering design, we are pleased to undertake the design and construction of this major investment that accelerates Halliburton’s strategic expansion of its fast-growing specialty chemicals business,” said Simon Nottingham, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “Fluor will use its full integrated solutions portfolio and its local execution capabilities to optimize the design and deliver a capital-efficient project with schedule certainty.”
Fluor’s Al Khobar office in Saudi Arabia will be leading the project with the team that performed the previous front-end engineering design contract, the company stated. They will be supported by Fluor’s global chemicals experts, as well.
The PlasChem Park is located in Jubail Industrial City II and is a 12 sqkm industrial space dedicated for the chemical and conversion industries.
