Aromax® Benzene & Cyclohexane Complex

Fluor was awarded the front-end engineering and program management portion of the entire project. In addition, Fluor executed the detailed engineering, procurement, and construction management for off-plot facilities.

  • The SCP petrochemical complex is a grassroots facility designed to produce 480,000 metric tonnes per annum (MTA) of benzene, 220,000 MTA of cyclohexane, and 372,000 MTA of gasoline blendstock from a naphtha-based feedstock.
  • Through the successful application of Chevron's "CPDEP” process, Fluor performed well against the pacesetter targets established by the project of cost, schedule, safety, and plant attainment.

The Aromax® project received Fluor's Hugh Coble Project Excellence Award in 1999. The award is based on outstanding performance in several areas; including safety, value creation, and Client and community relations.
