By working around the clock in multiple international offices, the Fluor-Raytheon team was able to bring the 145,000-barrels-per-day refinery on line five months ahead of schedule and under budget. Using advanced computer networks and design tools, the team essentially eliminated field rework during construction.
Fluor-Raytheon also achieved an enviable safety record during construction. With more than 14,000 local craft workers at peak, the project boasted a lost-time frequency rate 40 times better than the U.S. construction industry average. Considered the safest construction site in Thailand, the project was awarded the country’s National Safety Award for construction.
