The Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) awarded Fluor Corporation a contract for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) management services for the recommissioning of its polyphenylene ether (PPE) resin plant in the Netherlands, Pipeline Oil and Gas Magazine reported.

“We are pleased to support SABIC with this important recommissioning project at the Bergen op Zoom site where Fluor has more than 30 years of experience of providing innovative solutions to the client,” said Simon Nottingham, President of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The project was announced by SABIC during 2018 as a response to high global customer demand for its unique NORYLTM resins, based on PPE resin technology.

The 14-month project began in January 2019 led by Fluor’s Bergen op Zoom office and will be supported by Fluor’s Cebu office in the Philippines.

Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value in Q1 2019.
