CB&I has announced it has been awarded a contract valued at approximately US$1.3 billion by Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA, Inc. (Total) to provide engineering, procurement and construction )EPC) for an ethane cracker project located in Port Arthur, Texas. The new cracker will have an ethylene capacity of one million tpy. CB&I was previously awarded a contract for front-end engineering and design (FEED) services and the ethylene technology license. The facility will utilise six SRT-III® (Short Residence Time) pyrolysis heaters.

"This award is the result of substantial collaboration between our two companies that ensured the project design is fit-for-purpose, significantly reducing costs," said Philip K. Asherman, CB&I's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The cracker project, the fourth new ethane project for CB&I on the US Gulf Coast, will allow Total to capitalise on the abundance of shale gas in the US and realise significant operational synergies, and we look forward to helping them build on their global ethylene capabilities."
