Canadian construction and engineering giant SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a commissioning services contract from Exxon Mobil and Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corp (Sabic) for their Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) petrochemicals plant in San Patricio County, Texas, US, with which companies such as CTCI, McDermott, Savage, Zachry Group, and Mitsubishi are also involved.

SNC-Lavalin has been contracted to provide personnel, tools and equipment, and related system completion services – from planning to pre-commissioning, commissioning planning, and start-up support – across various locations for the project.

The chemical facility consists of a 1.8 million metric ton ethane steam cracker, a mono-ethylene glycol unit, and two polyethylene units.

Regulatory approvals for the project were received in June 2019, and construction is set to commence in Q3 2019, with start-up expected by 2022.

Commenting on the contract in a statement, president of resources at SNC-Lavalin, Craig Muir, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for our completions and commissioning team, and a strategic and significant services contract for us on the US Gulf Coast.

“We look forward to providing GCGV with the expertise, processes, and systems needed to ensure a safe and tight handover and a successful start-up.”
