Arctic Directory 2018: Fluor achieves substantial completion on Marathon project

Petroleum News

Fluor Corp. said June 19 that it has achieved substantial engineering completion for Marathon Petroleum Corp.s Tier 3 gasoline sulfur standard reconfiguration project at the Galveston Bay refinery in Texas City, Texas. Fluor and Marathon Petroleum have worked together on this project since the feasibility stage in 2014. Fluor is providing engineering, procurement and construction management services, which will enable the refinery to achieve updated U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 gasoline sulfur standards by 2020 and provide cleaner fuel to U.S. markets. The scope of work includes a new selective hydrogenation unit, a new naphtha desulfurization unit and upgrades to the existing naphtha desulfurization unit and the fluid catalytic cracker. The project also includes the modernization of the utilities and off-sites to continue the integration of the former Texas City refinery into the adjacent Galveston Bay refinery. Engineering was performed out of Fluors offices in Houston, and Manila and Cebu, Philippines. Construction activity is underway at the project site, with aboveground piping and structural steel currently being installed. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
