IRVING, Texas & FARNBOROUGH, U.K.--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it was awarded the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for INEOS’ new processing plant at the Saltend Chemicals Park in Hull, UK.

The new plant will be designed to have the capacity to produce 300,000 metric tons of VAM per year.
The front-end work will establish the design basis and technology selection for the plant with associated cost and schedule estimates. Fluor’s Farnborough office is leading the work supported by the company’s global experts and with input from INEOS engineers.
