During the 14-month Phase I, Fluor performed more than 400,000 work hours of FEED and long-lead procurement work. The company also prepared the appropriation cost estimate for Phase I.
For Phase II, Fluor performed detailed EPC assistance for a major polymers expansion project at the Yanpet Petrochemical Complex. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) was the lump-sum turnkey contractor. Fluor performed all engineering and procurement services and supported MHI in construction management.
The new facilities for this scope of work, which were a portion of a larger expansion project, included a two-train polyethylene plant (535,000 metric tons per year) and a polypropylene plant (260,000 metric tons per year) using Union Carbide Unipol technology. Additional scope of work for each plant included feed purification, catalyst preparation, reaction and finishing sections and the associated offsites and utilities.
