The Woodlands/USA — The new cracking furnace will have an ethylene capacity of 200 million pounds per year. The facility will utilize CB&I's Short Residence Time pyrolysis heater technology. The company was previously awarded a contract for the ethylene technology license, engineering and supply of the new furnace, which was fabricated at their facility in Thailand.

"This award adds to CB&I's winning streak of ethylene projects on the U.S. Gulf Coast," said Luke V. Scorsone, Executive Vice President of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group. "CB&I's ability to deliver single-source supply of every phase of this project — from concept to mechanical completion – provides DuPont with a cost-effective, low-risk solution as they expand their ethylene copolymers capacity to meet market demand."
