B&W Brought Into Cedar Bayou Ethylene Expansion
Executes Chemical Cleaning at Highly Strategic USGC Petrochemicals Project
HOUSTON, Texas—September 27, 2017—In one of the most critical projects in the Gulf Coast region, B&W Energy Services has been selected to design and execute a complex chemical cleaning procedure on eight ethane cracker furnaces at the Chevron Phillips Chemical Cedar Bayou Ethylene Expansion.
The CP Chem Cedar Bayou Ethylene Expansion project is a joint venture of Fluor and JGC Corporation. It is also one of two sites included in the United States Gulf Coast (USGC) Petrochemicals Project. The USGC project encompasses two sites – Cedar Bayou and Old Ocean – and is a $6 billion investment by CP Chem in the Gulf Coast. The project will use abundant shale supplies to meet the ever-increasing global demand for plastic products.
Building off past success executing other global projects for CP Chem, including services provided during the Sweeny Expansion project, B&W was the clear choice to design and execute the complex chemical cleaning needed at Cedar Bayou. Rapid mobilization for the chemical cleaning was needed to maintain the project schedule.
“Our previous work with Fluor, JGC and CP Chem on recent projects was very successful,” explained Chris Oakley, Director of Sales & Engineering at B&W Energy Services. “Knowing the level of performance they will get from B&W was critical in bringing us into Cedar Bayou.”
The expansion of Cedar Bayou by CP Chem is the final phase of the USGC Petrochemicals Project. Since initiating the chemical cleaning, the scope of work has expanded to include flushing of lube oil systems and air blows of process piping systems.
