HOUSTON, Texas—March 27, 2017—B&W Energy Services today announced their latest contract award with Linde Engineering North America at the ExxonMobil Ethylene Expansion project in Baytown, Texas. B&W will provide their engineered Steam Blow Services at the project and the engineering phase is now underway, with the official start date expected later this month.
“This is a huge accomplishment for our team and we’re excited about building on our relationship with Linde,” said Chris Oakley, Director of Sales & Engineering at B&W. “It’s not often that you get to support a multi-billion dollar project in your own back yard,” Oakley said.
The expansion project in Baytown includes a new steam cracker with a capacity of up to 1.5 million tons per year and provide ethylene feedstock for downstream chemical processing, including processing at two new 650,000 tons per year high performance polyethylene lines at the ExxonMobil’s Mont Belvieu plastics plant.
In addition, the project will employ about 10,000 construction workers, create 4,000 related jobs in nearby Houston communities and add 350 permanent positions at the Baytown complex. It is expected to increase regional economic activity by roughly $870 million per year and generate more than $90 million per year in additional tax revenues for local communities.
B&W Energy Services looks forward to bringing industry leading performance quality and exemplary safety record to this project with Linde.
