Fluor provided engineering, procurement, and construction management services to Pilipinas Shell for a refinery expansion at Tabangao, Batangas City, Philippines. The new process units located adjacent to existing facilities use Shell (SIPM) licensor technology. The platformer unit uses UOP licensor technology. Additions and modifications to existing utility systems and oil movement areas were also required.
Fluor's office in Manila expended more than 400,000 work hours on detailed design of offsites and utilities.
The $460 million project was the first of its size in the Philippines in more than 30 years, and one of the first projects in the region to use local subcontractors.
