IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation (FLR) said that it has been selected by a division of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (Marathon) to execute the engineering and procurement scope for a major reconfiguration (revamp) at Marathon’s Galveston Bay and Texas City refineries.
The revamp will create a more efficient operation, allowing the two refineries to achieve updated US Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 gasoline sulphur standards.
The scope includes a new unit, modernization of several existing units and modifications to the utilities and off sites to support the scheduled process changes and refinery connections.
Fluor is also performing the front-end engineering and design work for Marathon’s South Texas Asset Repositioning (STAR) program.
“Fluor continues to provide sustaining capital services at five Marathon sites across US, and has supported the Texas City and Galveston Bay operations since 2013,” said Mark Fields, president of Fluor’s energy & chemicals business in the Americas.
“Having previously executed the initial studies and early engineering for these projects, we are proud to progress them through the engineering and procurement phase,” added Fields.
