IRVING, TEXAS: Fluor Corporation is awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract by Dow Chemical for a propylene production asset project in Freeport, Texas.

Fluor successfully completed the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract thereby setting the stage for this next-phase EPCM project award. The project is under way with estimated mechanical completion by 2015. Fluor will book the undisclosed value in the third quarter.

“The US is experiencing a significant rebound in the petrochemical sector due to the attractive price of shale gas and we look forward to helping our long-time customer Dow realize this important project,” said Peter Oosterveer, President, Energy & Chemicals Group, Fluor.

Fluor’s Houston operations centre is leading the effort with support from its Philippines operations. Nearly 1,600 home office, construction management and craft personnel are expected to be involved on this project at its peak.
