The Shaw Group was awarded a contract to provide proprietary technology and engineering services for a new ultra-selective conversion (USC) furnace for Eastman Chemical’s ethylene plant in Longview, Texas.

Shaw will also procure the equipment for the furnace as part of the deal.

"Shaw’s energy and chemicals group’s USC furnace technology contains a range of design options which will give Eastman flexible solutions for their operational needs,” said James Glass, president of Shaw’s energy and chemicals business.

“Shale gas developments, which are making available local feedstock at lower prices, are driving increased activity in this business across the US,” Mr. Glass continued.

“Shaw is positioned to help owners with the expansion or revamp of existing facilities, as well as the design of grassroots facilities. First and quicker to market become major incentives for our clients.”

The undisclosed value of the contract was included in Shaw’s backlog of unfilled orders in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, the company said.

Shaw also is providing its proprietary technology, a process design package and front-end engineering design for a 1.5 million tpy grassroots ethylene plant for Chevron Phillips Chemical at its Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas.
