Fluor announced Wednesday that Germany-based BASF has chosen
the company as its engineering partner for chemicals capital
projects across North America.
BASF has awarded Fluor an umbrella services agreement for an
undisclosed contract value.
Services provided on projects covered by the agreement will
include conceptual and front-end engineering and design (FEED),
detailed engineering, procurement, project management and construction management
Fluor was previously selected by BASF in mid-2011 as its
engineering partner in Asia and Europe.
Fluor currently has multiple projects active under the partnering
agreements including the FEED phase for BASFs TDI
(toluene diisocyanate) project in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
BASF is a valued and important long-term Fluor client
for which we have performed significant projects across the
globe for decades, said Peter Oosterveer, president for
Fluors energy and chemicals group.
Coupled with our previous Asia and Europe partnering agreements and
projects with BASF, this new North America partnership makes
Fluor a truly global partner that will allow us to leverage our
US and global resource talent pool to effectively align with
BASFs growing global capital investment needs.
The North America agreement applies to all BASF facilities in the United States,
Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Fluors Houston office will lead efforts for the North
America partnership agreement, the company said.
Other Fluor operations centers will be utilized as
necessary for project execution.
