The project scope included the preparation, engineering, procurement, contracting, and construction for the BASF-YPC IPS project. Fluor performed basic engineering services for the utilities and infrastructure, defined common standards, and practices for all units involved, implemented a value-engineering program, and coordinated completion of the engineering and construction packages.
Fluor also performed FEED services for the offsites, utilities, and infrastructure. At the peak of the project Fluor's staff comprised 150 management personnel.
In December 2002, the BASF-YPC IPS project reached 2 million work hours without experiencing a single OSHA recordable incident. This is a tremendous achievement considering the challenges of this work environment.
