The EQUATE project is one of the largest lump-sum projects ever undertaken by Fluor. Given the large scale of this project, Fluor leveraged its global execution platform. The Houston office led the engineering and procurement, with piping and structural design done in Fluor's Manila office and local contractor coordination at the Kuwait office. Fluor also coordinated the work efforts of a variety of international vendors from Korea, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Mexico.
The infrastructure project consisted of all utility systems, environmental systems, overall project civil work, 19 buildings, raw materials and project pipelines to and from the complex, including dock facilities. Fluor was responsible for the information technology and spare parts programs.
