Project Details

  • This project is LyondellBasell's single-largest capital investment ever in its existence. Upon completion, the facility would produce 1 billion pounds of propylene oxide per year and 2.2 billion pounds of tertiary butyl alcohol per year.
  • In fact, it is estimated that the project would generate around 2,500 jobs and nearly 160 permanent positions when it becomes operational.
  • Propylene oxide is used as a building block for various day-to-day products such as bedding, furniture, carpeting, coatings, building materials, and adhesives, whereas tertiary butyl alcohol is transformed into fuel additives, which help gasoline burn cleaner and reduce automobile emissions.

A Fit-For-Purpose Solution for the Facility

Mark Fields, President of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals business in the Americas, highlighted that the PO and TBA facility is a strategic part of LyondellBasell's organic growth plans and Fluor is committed to extending its partnership on this project.

LyondellBasell is among the largest plastics, chemicals, and refining Companies in the world. The Company is renowned for its PO/TBA technology. Fluor has participated in this project since the beginning of front-end engineering and design in 2015. It is expected that the project would be completed by 2021. In fact, LyondellBasell's and Fluor's teams have developed a fit-for-purpose solution for the project, leveraging their Zero Base Execution SM approach. The solution optimizes the plant design, capitalizes on global procurement opportunities, and implements a cost-effective modularization approach. These integrated approaches have considerably reduced the plant's capital costs and thus helped LyondellBasell attain its final investment decision on this world-scale chemical facility.
