New York Stock Exchange-listed (NYSE) engineering and construction firm Fluor has secured a project management consultant contract for Saudi Arabia-based Advanced Global Investment Company (AGIC), a subsidiary of Tadawul-listed polypropylene producer, Advanced Petrochemical.

Fluor will work on AGIC’s new propane dehydrogenation, polypropylene and utilities, and offsites complex, located in Jubail Industrial City.

The company’s scope of work involves providing project management consultant services for front-end engineering design, detailed engineering, procurement and construction, of the project.

In a statement Fluor said that it booked the contract, value of which has not been disclosed, in Q1 2020.

Speaking about the contract win, group president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business, said: “Fluor has supported clients and safely executed projects in Saudi Arabia for more than 70 years.”

Once complete, the complex will manufacture 764756.7 tonnes per-year of propylene and 725747.8 tonnes per-year of polypropylene that will be used for the production of specialty polymers for the face masks, automotive, pipes, food packaging, and textiles industries.
