In a joint venture with JV Driver, SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a lump sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from INEOS Oligomers. Under the contract, SNC-Lavalin will design and build a polyalphaolefin (PAO) unit at the INEOS petrochemical complex in Chocolate Bayou, Texas, US.
The PAO unit, which is based on proprietary and differentiated INEOS Oligomers technology, is expected to come online in October 2019, with a production capacity of 120 000 tpy. The unit will contribute to INEOS Oligomers’ growth plans.
SNC-Lavalin is providing overall project management, engineering, procurement services, while JV Driver is providing overall construction management. The companies will jointly self-perform the main civil, mechanical, structural, electrical and instrumentation construction scopes of work.
Polyalphaolefins are oil-based lubricants that have applications in diverse industries ranging from aerospace and automotive to healthcare and industrial.
“This is a significant win for SNC-Lavalin and a major opportunity for us to expand on our excellent track record of safely delivering engineering, procurement and construction projects in downstream oil and gas. Working in collaboration with our joint venture partner JV Driver, we are looking forward to building a long-term relationship with INEOS”, said Christian Brown, President, Oil & Gas, SNC-Lavalin. “The contract award demonstrates our ability to deliver fixed price engineering, procurement and self-performed construction on the US Gulf Coast, something that continues to be important to clients across the oil and gas sector.”
