IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation (FLR) has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for the utilities, offsites and infrastructure scope of work for JG Summit’s petrochemical complex expansion in Batangas City, Philippines.

In addition to its EPCM scope for utilities, offsites and infrastructure, Fluor is providing program management services for the project. The project will primarily increase JG Summit’s ethylene production by 160,000 tonnes per year and its propylene production by 50,000 tonnes per year. The project also includes new and expanded downstream units.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
