International engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) company Fluor has been selected to deliver the Esso Fawley Strategy (FAST) project for ExxonMobil, which will see new plant installed at one of the UK’s biggest and most strategically important refineries.

Esso has received planning permission from the New Forest District Council for the new plant and following the successful completion of the front-end engineering design, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction on a reimbursable basis for the project.

Commenting on the contract award, Mark Fields group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business said:

“Fluor’s global project team has in-depth experience delivering projects for ExxonMobil, particularly at operational sites, and is using this expertise to optimise design and deliver this critical project in a safe, timely and capital efficient manner. Fluor will use its jointly owned fabrication yard for module construction to provide quality and schedule benefits and minimise disruption to existing operations.”

Fluor’s scope of work for the FAST project includes design and construction of a new diesel hydrotreater and steam methane reforming hydrogen plant accompanied by modifications to existing facilities at the Fawley site. Engineering and procurement is under way led by Fluor’s Farnborough office in the UK and construction is due to start later this year.

Hello. I would like to inquire if there are any vacancies on this project for Piping/Mechandical Engineer/Supervisor. I am seeking a new opportunity since all this Covid pandemic has changed many factors in peoples lives, including mine.
