IRVING, Texas - Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) has started construction activities on a new delayed coker unit for ExxonMobil Petroleum & Chemical BVBA (ExxonMobil) at its Antwerp, Belgian refinery. Construction on the project, which will expand the refinery’s production capabilities, formally kicked off at a groundbreaking ceremony in October.
Fluor’s responsibilities span the project’s life cycle and include design, engineering, procurement, module fabrication, transportation, installation and construction. Fluor is responsible for the new delayed coker unit that will convert heavy, higher sulfur residual oils into transportation fuel products such as marine gasoil and diesel fuel.
“Fluor will provide our full suite of engineering, procurement and construction services on this lump-sum refinery expansion project for the European downstream market,” said Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business for the Europe, Africa and the Middle East region. “We are applying our modular execution and construction innovations in order to deliver schedule and capital efficiencies through an integrated solution to ExxonMobil.”
Engineering and design work for the project began in June 2014 and is being led by Fluor’s office in the Netherlands. Fluor booked the project into backlog for an undisclosed value earlier in 2014.
