Yanpet Expansion Project Yanbu, Saudi Arabia Fluor was, the program management contractor for the total project. We performed the front-end engineering design (FEED) and the procurement of critical equipment and materials. We also and prepared the appropriation cost estimate for Phase I. For Phase II, we provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for the utilities and offsites, as well as polymers engineering and procurement services. The expansion facilities provides 800,000-metric-ton-per-year ethylene capacity and converts ethylene into 535,000 tons of polyethylene and 410,000 tons of ethylene glycol. In addition, it provides 260,000 tons of polypropylene. Fluor's Continuous Performance Improvement (CPI) programs of Value Engineering, Value Awareness and Constructability identified significant savings for this project and reduced or eliminated schedule risk. EQUATE, Shuaiba, Kuwait EQUATE, formerly Kuwait Petrochemical Joint Venture (KPJV), selected Fluor to perform program management, supervising the overall execution of a grass roots petrochemical complex and preparing the coordination procedures, specifications, and plans. Our scope included complete engineering, procurement and construction for the offsites, utilities, and infrastructure. The total installed cost for this mega project was $1.4 billion. This petrochemical complex, located within the Shuaiba Industrial Complex, included the following plants: A 650,000 metric tonnes per annum (MTA) ethylene plant based on an ethane feedstock supplied by the Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation A 340,000 (MTA) mono-ethylene glycol plant A 450,000 (MTA) linear low density polyethylene and high density polyethylene plant Offsites and utility facilities The facility was project financed by a combination of partner equity and commercial bank loans. KPJV used the export credit agency support for the project as the means to provide the required loan guarantees to the commercial banks. Technologies for the ethylene glycol and polyethylene were licensed from Union Carbide, and for the ethylene plant from Brown & Root, Inc. The technologies for the mono-ethylene glycol and polyethylene units were provided by Union Carbide. KPJV purchased the technology employed for the ethylene unit from Brown and Root, Inc. Detailed facility scope packages were prepared for each unit.
