SNC-Lavalin awarded EPC contract by NOVA Chemicals

In consortium with TechnipFMC, SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a lump sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to supply NOVA Chemicals with two gas cracking furnaces. This award supports the recently-announced third-phase of the conversion and expansion of NOVA Chemicals’ Corunna cracker, which is expected to increase the unit’s current ethylene capacity by more than 50% and is linked to the construction of a new polyethylene facility being developed by the company.

Prior to this EPC award, TechnipFMC provided the associated process technology under a separate licensing agreement with NOVA Chemicals; both TechnipFMC and SNC-Lavalin supported NOVA Chemicals in the front-end engineering (FEED) development for the gas cracking furnaces.

Under the agreement, TechnipFMC will have primary responsibility for the detailed engineering and procurement aspects of the work, while SNC-Lavalin will be responsible for the modular fabrication, erection, construction and pre-commissioning.

“We are pleased to be awarded this project which will expand our ongoing and successful working relationship with NOVA Chemicals,” said Kevin Dell, Senior Vice President, Oil & Gas Canada, SNC-Lavalin. “Our downstream capabilities are well regarded in Canada and this segment of the market is seeing growing demand; this award reinforces our reputation for delivering gas cracking furnaces within Canada.”
