Fluor set to deliver Esso Fawley Strategy (FAST) project

Fluor Corporation announced today that construction planning is now set to proceed for the Fawley Strategy (FAST) Project. ExxonMobil’s UK affiliate, Esso Petroleum Company Limited, has received planning permission from the New Forest District Council for the new plant that will be located at the Fawley refinery and petrochemical site near Southampton, England. Following the successful completion of the front-end engineering design, Fluor is providing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction on a reimbursable basis for the FAST project.

“Fluor’s global project team has in-depth experience delivering projects for ExxonMobil, particularly at operational sites, and is using this expertise to optimize design and deliver this critical project in a safe, timely and capital efficient manner,” said Mark Fields, group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business. “Fluor will use its jointly owned fabrication yard for module construction to provide quality and schedule benefits and minimize disruption to existing operations.”

Fluor’s scope of work includes design and construction of a new diesel hydrotreater and steam methane reforming hydrogen plant accompanied by modifications to existing facilities at the Fawley site. Engineering and procurement is under way led by Fluor’s Farnborough office in the U.K., and construction is due to start later this year.
