CB&I bags Mexichem-Occidental JV ethylene storage facility contract

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS: Engineering firm Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB&I) said it has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $115 million, as part of the scope of the ethylene project, by Ingleside Ethylene LLC, a joint venture between Mexichem SAB de CV (Mexichem) and Occidental Chemical Corporation (OxyChem), a subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum Corp, for the engineering, procurement and construction of an ethylene storage facility in Markham, Texas.

The scope of work consists of the surface facilities—including compression, dehydration, metering and associated pipe fabrication—at the salt cavern storage location. The storage facility is integral with the ethylene cracker where as previously announced, CB&I is providing the license for the ethylene technology, five SRT (short residence time) cracking heaters and the engineering, procurement and construction of the ethylene cracker in Ingleside, Texas.

“The ethylene cracker is a significant project both for OxyChem and Mexichem and the award of this project reflects the quality of work CB&I has provided to date,” said Patrick Mullen, president, CB&I’s engineering & construction operating group.

“It shows the customers’ confidence in CB&I’s ability to offer a more complete supply chain solution—from proven licensed process technology, fabrication and engineered products, all the way through to the EPC process,” he added.
