Fluor Wins BASF China Contracts

07.10.2022 - Fluor has been granted two reimbursable contracts worth more than $2 billion for engineering, procurement and construction management services at BASF’s ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol (EO/EG) project in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province, China.

Jim Breuer, group president of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business said it has executed a significant amount of work over the past 20 years with BASF in China.

Fluor’s work on the Zhanjiang Verbund site consists of two primary packages: the EO/EG derivative unit and site infrastructure, utilities and logistics. The contractor is also providing services as part of the centralized program management team activities. The project will be led by Fluor’s office in Shanghai.

The project at Zhanjiang will be BASF’s largest investment at about $10 billion and its first wholly owned site in China. The complex will include a steam cracker and various downstream plants and is expected to be fully completed by 2030.
