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.
