HOUSTON, TX — B&W Energy Services has been chosen to execute engineering, AquaLazing, and chemical cleaning services through a collaboration with Zachry Group on the BPEX project in Beaumont, Texas.
Zachry Group was enlisted by ExxonMobil in 2016 to support its 650 kTA (kilotons annually) Beaumont polyethylene unit expansion (BPEX). Zachry is providing constructability and execution planning, electrical and instrumentation design and direct-hire responsibilities for in-plant construction, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2019.
ExxonMobil is a leader in the manufacturing of polyethylene products for packaging applications that deliver light-weight, tough, damage-resistant films. Construction of the new unit is well under way at the plant, where current polyethylene production capacity is one million tonnes per year. The expansion will increase the plant production capacity by 65% to meet growing demand for high performance plastics. At its peak, the Beaumont expansion project will employ a skilled workforce of approximately 1,400 people.
B&W has begun engineering on the project, and will continue field support services until scope completion later this year.
“Our relationship with Zachry is built on several successful projects and mutual impact,” said Jason Brupbacher, Chief Executive Officer at B&W. “We are honored to be a part of what Zachry is doing for ExxonMobil.”
