Shaw Group to design Chevron's Texas ethylene plant

The Shaw Group Inc. announced it has been awarded a contract by Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) to license its proprietary technology and provide a process design package for a 1.5 million ton per annum grassroots ethylene plant.

The new facility, which will be located at Chevron Phillips Chemical's existing Cedar Bayou Plant in Baytown, Texas, will be designed to use economical supplies of ethane feedstock derived from increased shale gas production.

"This project represents a significant change in the ethylene marketplace as no U.S. plants have been added in approximately ten years," said James Glass, president of Shaw's Energy & Chemicals Group.

"The selection of Shaw's technology for this project followed an evaluation of the top ethylene licensors in the world. Our robust Ultra Selective Conversion(R) furnace and recovery system and 70 years of experience in designing and/or building more than 120 grassroots ethylene units were key factors."

Shaw has a long history of providing services to Chevron Phillips Chemical, having designed their ethylene plants in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, and Port Arthur, Texas. In addition, Shaw has conducted studies and performed revamps at most of the company's other sites.

The undisclosed value of the contract will be included in Shaw's Energy & Chemicals segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

The Shaw Group Inc. is a leading global provider of engineering, construction, technology, fabrication, remediation and support services for clients in the energy, chemicals, environmental, infrastructure and emergency response industries.

A Fortune 500 company with fiscal year 2011 annual revenues of $5.9 billion, Shaw has approximately 27,000 employees around the world and is a power sector industry leader according to Engineering News-Record's list of Top 500 Design Firms.
