Zachry Group has been chosen by ExxonMobil to support its Beaumont, Texas, 650 kTA (kilotons annually) polyethylene expansion, which begins this quarter (4Q16).
Zachry will provide constructability and execution planning, electrical and instrumentation design, and direct-hire responsibilities for in-plant construction, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2019.
“Zachry Group is excited to partner with the ExxonMobil team to deliver this significant expansion of their polyethylene capability safely and efficiently through our EPC planning and execution model,” said Scott Duffy, Zachry Group Senior Vice President, Commercial Management.
At its peak, two years from now, the Beaumont expansion project will employ a skilled workforce of approximately 1400 people. Zachry has worked with ExxonMobil in Beaumont since 2007, providing maintenance and construction services at the company’s existing refining, chemicals, and lube oil manufacturing facilities. Zachry also constructed a large co-generation facility at ExxonMobil’s Beaumont refinery in the early 2000s.
