CB&I bags EPC contract for Total's ethane cracker
Mar '17
CB&I has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $1.3 billion by Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA, Inc to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for an ethane cracker project located in Port Arthur, Texas. CB&I was previously awarded a contract for front-end engineering and design services and the ethylene technology license.

Total’s new cracker will have an ethylene capacity of one million metric tons per year. The facility will utilise six Short Residence Time (SRT-III) pyrolysis heaters.

"This award is the result of substantial collaboration between our two companies that ensured the project design is fit-for-purpose, significantly reducing costs," said Philip K Asherman, CB&I's president and chief executive officer. "The cracker project, the fourth new ethane project for CB&I on the US Gulf Coast, will allow Total to capitalise on the abundance of shale gas in the US and realise significant operational synergies, and we look forward to helping them build on their global ethylene capabilities."

As a leading provider of technology and infrastructure for the energy industry, CB&I provides reliable solutions to its customers around the world while maintaining a relentless focus on safety and an uncompromising standard of quality. (RKS)
