February 24, 2019

FLUOR Corporation announced Saturday that it was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction of the Halliburton Specialty Chemicals Manufacturing Reaction Plant located in the PlasChem Park, Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2018.

“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,” said Simon Nottingham, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “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.”

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

Fluor’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.

PlasChem Park, located in Jubail Industrial City II next to Sadara’s new manufacturing complex, is a 12-square-kilometer (4.6 square miles) industrial space dedicated for the chemical and conversion industries.
