Fluor Corp. has been selected by a division of Marathon Petroleum Corp. to execute the engineering and procurement scope for a major reconfiguration at Marathon’s Galveston Bay and Texas City, Texas, US, refineries.
Fluor confirmed that it will book the undisclosed contract value into backlog in 1Q17.
Mark Fields, President of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in the Americas, said: “Fluor continues to provide sustaining capital services at five Marathon sites across the US, and has supported the Texas City and Galveston Bay operations since 2013 […] Having previously executed the initial studies and early engineering for these projects, we are proud to progress them through the engineering and procurement phase.”
The reconfiguration will allow the two refineries to achieve updated US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 3 gasoline sulfur standards. The scope of the contract includes a new unit, modernisation of several existing units, and modifications to the utilities and offsites to support the scheduled process changes and refinery connections.
Fluor is also performing the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for Marathon’s South Texas Asset Repositioning (STAR) program.
