Fluor Corporation said it has secured a major contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the Halliburton Specialty Chemicals Manufacturing Reaction Plant in Saudi Arabia.

PlasChem Park, located in Jubail Industrial City II next to Sadara’s new manufacturing complex, is a 12-sq-km industrial space dedicated for the chemical and conversion industries.

The new chemicals facility will produce a wide range of specialty chemical products and intermediates to supply both the upstream and downstream oil and gas production industries.

On the contract win, Simon Nottingham, the president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, said: "Having completed the front-end engineering design, we are pleased to undertake the design and construction of this major investment that accelerates Halliburton’s strategic expansion of its fast-growing specialty chemicals business."

“Fluor will use its full integrated solutions portfolio and its local execution capabilities to optimize the design and deliver a capital-efficient project with schedule certainty,” stated Nottingham.

Fluor’s scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning.

The US group’s Al Khobar office in Saudi Arabia will lead the project with the team that performed the previous front-end engineering design contract and will be supported by Fluor’s global chemicals experts.
