IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation said that it has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) work by LyondellBasell Industries NV, for its proposed propylene oxide and tertiary butyl alcohol plant.

Front-end design activities are expected to be completed in 2016.

The plant will be the world’s largest of its type and will be located at LyondellBasell’s existing Channelview and Bayport Choate complexes in Texas. The scope includes a 1 billion pound-per-year propylene oxide and a 2 billion pound-per-year tertiary butyl alcohol plant at the Channelview site, an ethers plant at the Bayport Choate site, as well as associated infrastructure. The products will be used in the production of polyols, high-octane gasoline components and other isobutylene derivatives.
