PTT Global Chemical Public Company (PTTGC) selected a Fluor Corporation-led team to perform front-end engineering and design work for its proposed petrochemical complex in Belmont County, Ohio.
The team includes Fluor, Technip and SK E&C. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the third quarter of 2015.
The project will encompass an ethane cracker and derivatives units by leveraging the availability of feedstock from gas taken from the Utica and Marcellus shale formations in the region to create chemical products.
Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Americas business line, said in a release, “Our team has partnered together on numerous world-class petrochemical projects. We will leverage this experience and our innovative design technologies to bring this project to fruition.”
The company expects to complete front-end activities in 2016.
