Fluor bags Williams’ propane dehydrogenation project in Canada

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation was awarded a contract by Williams to provide preliminary engineering services for a proposed propane dehydrogenation (PDH) project near Redwater, Alberta, Canada. Fluor booked the contract in the fourth quarter of 2012 for an undisclosed value. The proposed PDH facility would primarily use the propane recovered at Williams’ existing fractionation facility in Alberta and convert it into polymer-grade propylene, a petrochemical feedstock used in plastics manufacturing.

“Fluor is pleased to have been selected by Williams to provide preliminary engineering services for what would be Canada’s first propane dehydrogenation facility. We are encouraged by the opportunities that the expansion of the Canadian oil sands provides for the chemicals industry in North America,” said Peter Oosterveer, President, Fluor Energy and Chemicals Group.
