US-based contractor Fluor Corporation has won a contract to build an isononanol plant in Pengerang, Malaysia.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was awarded by Petronas Refinery and Petrochemical Corporation.
Operating with consortium partner, Technip, Fluor will act as the programme management consultant on Petronas’ Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project, as well as the US$27 billion Pengerang Integrated Complex development.
Fluor’s energy and chemicals business Asia-Pacific region president, Ken Choudhary, said, “This award is a testament to the strong partnership we have with Petronas.”
Isononanol is used in the development of plasticisers, which are widely used by the construction and automotive industries.
