Fluor wins contract for Dow U.S. Gulf Coast investments

Gerald Ondrey

Fluor Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.fluor.com) announced today that it was awarded a contract by The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, Mich.; www.dow.com) to execute a significant portion of its U.S. Gulf Coast investments. Fluor’s scope includes the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a propane dehydrogenation unit, an ethane cracker, and associated power, utilities and infrastructure facility upgrades to support each unit. The facilities will be constructed in Dow's Oyster Creek facility in Freeport, Texas. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the first quarter of 2013.

“Fluor has had a strong and long-standing relationship with Dow, supporting some of the industry’s most challenging and innovative projects,” says Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “This is a significant endeavor by Dow to process hydrocarbons from the domestic shale formations, and we are pleased to continue our support of their efforts.”

Fluor’s Sugar Land, Texas, office will lead the EPC and self-perform construction phases of the project with additional support provided from the company’s Asia Pacific operations.
