Fluor provided engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for all utilities and offsites at the complex. Fluor also created an around-the-clock execution approach with overall project leadership from Farnborough, UK, working with the Houston, USA; Manila, Philippines; and Al Khobar, KSA; offices. Part of Fluor's scope on this mega-project included the following three different areas:
- Utilities, Power and Infrastructure (UPI) – incorporating Steam Generation, Power Distribution, Interconnecting Facilities and Waste Treatment
- Site Development and Logistics (SDL) – includes Offsite Pipeline and Port facilities & buildings
- Chemicals II Shared Systems (Chem. II ESS (SSC)) – includes isocyanates shared systems, Shared Laboratory Facilities (SLF) and sample transportation systems
Fluor has a long-standing relationship with Dow, having previously been selected to carry out other chemicals projects. Responsibilities were divided into eight work packages executed among four Fluor offices. This verified the infrastructure and its interconnecting arrangements were available in a timely manner, which is a vital component of the unprecedented project.
