Fluor bags contract for Sadara Chemical joint venture in Saudi Arabia

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation has been awarded a reimbursable engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for all of the utilities and offsites at the Jubail chemical complex in Saudi Arabia. The complex will be owned and operated by Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), a joint venture to be formed by Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and Dow Chemical Co (Dow). Fluor booked the undisclosed value in the second quarter.

The new chemicals complex is expected to be the largest single-phase development in the world, with a planned investment of $20 billion. Ensuring that the utilities, offsites and infrastructure and interconnecting piping arrangements are timely is a vital component of this unprecedented project.

Fluor’s al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia; Farnborough, UK; Manila, Philippines; and Houston offices will collaborate on delivering the contract requirements.
