Wood Group Mustang to provide services for Dow pipeline construction
Wood Group Mustang (Houston; www.mustangeng.com) has been awarded a contract by The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, Mich.; www.dow.com) to provide services for construction of approximately 140 miles of ethane, ethylene, propane and propylene pipelines, associated interconnections and station modifications between Dow Texas Operations in Freeport, Tex. and facilities at Mt. Belvieu, Tex. The pipelines and station upgrades are part of construction for a world-class ethylene unit, previously announced as part of Dow’s comprehensive plan to further connect its U.S. operations with cost-advantaged feedstocks available from increasing supplies of U.S. shale gas.
Wood Group Mustang will provide engineering, field services and construction management on the project through its Houston and Angleton, Tex. offices. Wood Group Mustang has previously provided a full spectrum of services for Dow’s pipeline assets, including support for the company’s Texas pipeline integrity program. Following completion of front-end loading (FEL) in 2012, detailed design for the project began in February 2013. Completion is scheduled for late 2016.
