KBR awarded EPC contract for new HDPE facility in Texas  

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR Inc. (Houston; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract from Gemini HDPE LLC, a manufacturing joint venture between INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA (Ineos) 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. The new facility is designed to produce 470,000 ton/yr 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 Center. 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. The contract value was not disclosed. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the third quarter 2014 backlog of unfilled orders for the Hydrocarbons segment.
