Fluor and JGC Joint Venture Awarded EPC Contract by Chevron Phillips
Chemical for Gulf Coast Petrochemicals Project in Texas
IRVING, Texas -- October 3, 2013
Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) and JGC Corporation announced today that their
50/50 joint venture was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction
(EPC) contract by Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips
Chemical) for its U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) Petrochemicals Project. Fluor booked
its share of the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter of 2013.
The project consists of the ethylene unit (cracker) and associated offsite
components to be built at Chevron Phillips Chemical’s existing Cedar Bayou
complex in Baytown, Texas. Fluor’s scope includes engineering and procurement
for the outside battery limit scope as well as direct hire construction for
the entire cracker project.
“This project represents the first EPC opportunity to be executed by our newly
formed association with JGC,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s
Energy & Chemicals Group. “The U.S. Gulf Coast continues to play a significant
role in the chemicals market and our depth of resources and breadth of
experience will create value for our client and support their success
throughout the project.”
Project work is under way and will be performed from Fluor’s Houston office
with assistance from its Philippines offices.
