Fluor bags PTT Global’s petrochemical unit contract

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation said that PTT Global Chemical Public Company (PTTGC) has selected a Fluor-led team to perform front-end engineering and design work for its proposed petrochemical complex in Belmont County, Ohio. The team includes Fluor, Technip and SK E&C. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the third quarter of 2015.

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

The project will encompass an ethane cracker and derivatives units by leveraging the availability of feedstock from gas taken from the Utica and Marcellus shale formations in the region to create chemical products.

“Working closely with PTTGC on the front-end activities, we will identify the most capital-efficient integrated solutions to support the project’s advancement,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s energy & chemicals Americas business line.
