Wood Group Mustang to build Texas pipelines for Dow ethylene project

Dow Chemical on Thursday awarded a contract to Wood Group Mustang for construction of 140 miles of ethane, ethylene, propane and propylene pipelines between Dow's site in Freeport, Texas, and facilities at Mont Belvieu, Texas.

The pipelines and station upgrades are part of construction for a world-class ethylene unit, previously announced as part of Dow's plan to further connect its US operations with cost-advantaged feedstocks. 

"We are proud that Dow recognized the differentiators that set Wood Group Mustang apart from our competitors and is entrusting us with the responsibility of executing this prestigious project," said John Ellison, president of Wood Group Mustang's pipeline business.

"We will endeavor to maintain this trust," he added.

Wood Group Mustang will provide engineering, field services and construction management on the project through its Houston and Angleton, Texas offices.

Wood Group Mustang has previously provided a full spectrum of services for Dow's pipeline assets, including support for the company's Texas pipeline integrity program.

Following completion of front-end loading (FEL) in 2012, detailed design for the project began in February 2013. Completion is scheduled for late 2016.
