Shaw gets Eastman’s USC furnace contract in Texas

BATON ROUGE, US: The Shaw Group has been awarded a contract to provide its proprietary technology and engineering services for a new ultra selective conversion (USC) furnace for Eastman Chemical Company’s ethylene plant in Longview, Texas. Shaw will also procure the equipment for the furnace. Shaw is also providing its proprietary technology, a process design package and front-end engineering design for a 1.5 million tonne per annum grassroots ethylene plant for Chevron Phillips Chemicals at its Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas.

“Shaw’s Energy & Chemicals Group’s USC furnace technology contains a range of design options which will give Eastman flexible solutions for their operational needs. Shale gas developments, which are making available local feedstock at lower prices, are driving increased activity in this business across the US. Shaw is positioned to help owners with the expansion or revamp of existing facilities, as well as the design of grassroots facilities. First and quicker to market become major incentives for our clients,” said James Glass, President, Energy & Chemicals, Shaw.
