Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Dow, awarded Fluor Corporation a reimbursable engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for all of the utilities and offsites at the al-Jubail chemical complex in Saudi Arabia.
The complex will be owned and operated by Sadara. Fluor booked the undisclosed value in the second quarter.
The new chemicals complex is expected to be the largest single-phase development in the world, with a planned investment of US$20 billion. Ensuring that the utilities, offsites and infrastructure and interconnecting piping arrangements are timely is a vital component of this unprecedented project.
Fluor's al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia; Farnborough, UK; Manila, Philippines; and Houston offices will collaborate on delivering the contract requirements.
The award has positioned Fluor to re-engage with Saudi Aramco and to continue working with Dow.
