Fluor's ICA Fluor industrial engineering-construction joint venture with Empresas ICA signed a contract to revamp the vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant located within the Pajaritos petrochemical complex in Mexico, located near Veracruz

The VCM plant is run by Petroquimica Mexicana de Vinilo (PMV), a joint venture between Mexichem, the leading Mexican petrochemical company, and Pemex, Mexico’s state-owned oil and gas company.

The total contract value is approximately $205 million. Fluor said it will book its $102.5 million share of the contract in the fourth quarter of 2013.
