Ineos Olefins, Sasol awards KBR with new high-density polyethylene facility contract

HOUSTON, US: KBR, Inc has been awarded a contract from Gemini HDPE LLC, a manufacturing joint venture between Ineos Olefins & Polymers USA and Sasol, to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for a new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) facility to be located at Ineos’s Battleground Manufacturing Complex in La Porte, Texas, US.

The new facility is designed to produce 470 kilotonne per annum of bimodal HDPE using Innovene S process technology licensed from Ineos Technologies. The new, single-train facility will include new polymerization, pelletization, and railcar load-out facilities, plus upgrades to existing utilities and infrastructure.

Engineering and procurement services will be split between KBR’s Houston Operating Center and KBR’s Monterrey Engineering Centre. KBR will provide direct hire construction with selected subcontracts to construct the new facility. Upon completion, the new facility will be one of the largest in the Americas.

“This significant win is a testament of the excellent work performed with the Gemini team during the FEED portion of the project. We look forward to continuing our work with Ineos and Sasol,” said Stuart Bradie, President and Chief Executive Officer, KBR.
