IRVING, Texas & FARNBOROUGH, U.K.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor (NYSE: FLR) received a Hydrocarbon Processing award today at the sixth annual International Refining and Petrochemicals Conference (IRPC) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, for its role in the Sadara Chemical project in Saudi Arabia.
Sadara is a joint venture developed by the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company, both of which were recognized, as well as five other contractors involved in the world-scale undertaking at the Jubail-based chemical complex.
Fluor was recognized for providing engineering, procurement and construction management services for the project’s utilities and offsites – all the facilities outside of the process units such as field storage, service facilities, infrastructure, electric substation, administration and buildings.
The Sadara project won the International Petrochemical Project of 2014 following a poll by the readers of Hydrocarbon Processing, a leading worldwide news and technical journal for the oil and gas industries.
“Fluor congratulates Sadara on this industry recognition for its development of the new chemicals complex, which is the world’s largest chemical complex ever to be built in a single phase,” said Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “Fluor participated in an integrated team effort consisting of professionals from our Khobar, Saudi Arabia; Farnborough, U.K.; Manila, Philippines; and Houston, Texas, offices that were dedicated to completing this project on time and on budget.”
In addition to the Sadara Chemical Project, two other petrochemical projects in which Fluor served as EPC contractor were in the top three of worldwide petrochemical projects.
