18 February 2016: Fluor awarded EPCM contact for BASF Chemicals Project

18 February 2016

BASF has awarded Fluor an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for the revamp of an alcohol and plasticizers facility in Pasadena, Texas. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Fluor will convert the general-purpose plasticizer units to Palatinol® DOTP (diethylhexyl terephthalate). This Palatinol® DOTP unit will be BASF’s first in North America. The plasticizer is used in numerous products, including vinyl film, flooring, coated fabrics and wire and cable coatings. In addition, Fluor will convert another unit to provide raw material for the Palatinol® DOTP unit.

Facility start-up is scheduled for early 2017.
