CB&I Announces Petrochemicals Expansion Project In US - Quick Facts

CB&I (CBI) said it secured a contract worth about $300 million from Williams Olefins, LLC for a petrochemicals expansion project in Geismar, Louisiana.

According to the company, the scope of the award includes the license and basic engineering for the ethylene technology, the supply of the cracking furnaces, and the detailed engineering, procurement, and construction of the expansion project. Plant capacity is expected to be increased from 1.35 to 1.95 billion pounds per year.

Philip Asherman, president and CEO, said, "We are very pleased to be selected for this important U.S. ethylene project. The petrochemicals market is re-emerging in the U.S. due to the abundance of lower cost ethane feedstock, directly attributable to increased shale gas production. This award reflects the industry's confidence in CB&I's ability to provide both proven technology and EPC services to the petrochemicals market."
