Sunoco Logistics has awarded Texas-based Fluor Corp. a construction management project for the Mariner East 2 project at the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex along the Delaware River in Pennsylvania, officials with Fluor said.
Fluor Corp. did not disclose the amount of the contract, but said it would book the contract value into backlog in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Mariner East 2 is expected to provide an additional 275,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day upon its completion. The liquids will then be distributed to local, domestic and international markets, according to Sunoco. Fluor will manage the construction of the new terminal which will chill, process and distribute propane, butane and ethane at the complex.
Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals division in the Americas, said Fluor is “pleased to have been selected” for the project.
“It is an important project within (Sunoco’s) expansion program that enables the continuing development of the Marcus Hook Industrial complex into a world-class NGL hub,” Brittain said, in a statement. “We will leverage our extensive construction management experience to bring capital efficiency and schedule certainty to the fast-track project.”
Fluor said this project will include a “projectwide collaboration platform to streamline processes and facilitate execution with increased efficiency.” According to Sunoco, the Mariner East 2 project is expected to start operations in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Fluor Corp. is a global engineering and construction firm headquartered in Irving, Texas, with offices in Greenville.
