Fluor Corporation was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction of the Halliburton Specialty Chemicals Manufacturing Reaction Plant located in the PlasChem Park, Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
Fluor, which has a branch in Greenville, 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.”

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.
