Fluor deployed its full suite of integrated solutions, including its self-perform construction expertise, innovative construction execution methodologies and unique scaffolding partnership to meet Chevron Phillips Chemical's cost and schedule goals. Work was led by Fluor's Houston office with assistance from its Philippines offices. At peak construction, more than 10,000 construction jobs were supported.
Fluor executed several mega-lifts at the site, erecting the major pieces of equipment used in the plant's operations. Each lift was more than 275 tons, with three of the lifts weighing more than 500 tons. The final and tallest lift, to erect a C2 Splitter (used for olefin separation) that is part of the ethane cracker, was more than 250 feet tall and weighed more than 570 tons. Two best-in-class cranes were needed to lift the unit, which weighs more than 300 cars. All lifts were completed safely and on schedule.
