Bechtel Corporation and Linde AG to build ethylene cracker plants in North America

July 28/2011

(Reuters) -- Bechtel Corporation and Linde AG announced today they will work together to expand and build ethylene cracker plants in North America. The combination of Bechtels unmatched engineering, procurement, and direct-hire construction (EPC) capabilities and Lindes proven ethylene technology provides customers a complete EPC/Technology provider.

The alliance builds on the companies previous work together at the Borouge petrochemicals complex in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Together, they performed engineering, procurement, construction, and start-up for the ethylene plant, off-site facilities, and utilities at the complex, which was successfully completed on schedule in February 2002.

With the growth in shale gas production in North America, ethylene producers are planning new grass-roots projects and major expansions, and they need a world-class team to deliver them. The agreement between Bechtel and Linde creates that team, said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtels Oil, Gas & Chemicals unit. Lindes record of success makes the company a strong partner for Bechtel. We are thrilled to be working with them again.
