US-based Fluor Corporation says it has been awarded two reimbursable engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) management contracts by German chemical firm BASF for the ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol and infrastructure, off sites and utilities packages as part of the company’s new petchem project in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province, China. The contract value to Fluor is more than US$2 billion and was booked in the third quarter of 2022.
“Over the past 20 years, Fluor has executed a significant amount of work with BASF in China,” said Jim Breuer, group president of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business. “Fluor values this longstanding relationship and looks forward to continuing this trusted partnership.”
Fluor’s project scope of work for BASF’s Zhanjiang site project consists of two primary packages including the ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol derivative unit and the infrastructure, offsites and utilities scope, comprised of site infrastructure, utility generation and site logistics. Fluor is also performing services as part of the centralised program management team activities.
