Fluor awarded Biobío refinery project in Chile

Fluor Corporation announced today that it was awarded a contract by Empresa Nacional del Petróleo (ENAP) for the engineering, procurement and construction of a new process unit at its Biobío refinery in Chile. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the  fourth quarter of 2016.

Fluor will perform the engineering, procurement and construction services to install a new flue gas steam generator, a wet gas scrubber and purge treatment unit to treat residual gas generated in the refinery’s fluid catalytic cracker that will reduce air emissions. Fluor is also responsible for interconnections between the new and existing unit, which will occur during a schedule-driven 2017 turnaround.

“We leveraged our extensive Chilean experience, strong relationships with local contractors and our global refining expertise to develop the construction-driven execution plan that meets the client’s requirements,” said Mark Fields, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in the Americas.

“While Fluor has been active in Chile for more than 35 years, this  project is significant for us as it marks our entry into the oil and gas  market in Chile,” said Andrés Beran, Fluor’s vice president of sales for  Latin America. “We look forward to making this project the first of many  to be executed for ENAP in the coming years.”
