ExxonMobil award polyethylene plant automation service contract to Wood Group

Wood Group has been awarded a $40 million contract by ExxonMobil Chemical to provide main automation contractor services, including detailed design and site construction of the process control systems, for a grassroots polyethylene plant to be built in Beaumont, Texas. Wood Group completed the front-end engineering design for the process control systems in 2015.

Wood Group is currently providing process control systems detailed engineering, procurement and fabrication services for ExxonMobil Chemical’s multi-billion dollar expansion project at the Baytown and Mont Belvieu plants near Houston. Much of the work done for that project will be used for this new project, applying a design-one, build-two concept that helps to reduce project costs and schedules.

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: “Wood Group’s global experience delivering automation and control solutions for large-scale projects will help to ensure a safe, cost-effective and efficient process control solution for this new petrochemical facility.  We look forward to continuing our long, successful history of executing notable projects with ExxonMobil Chemical.”
