Exxon's Antwerp Expansion Delayed Coker at Exxon's Antwerp Plant Takes Shape
Engineering partner Fluor has begun the construction works for a new delayed coker unit at Exxon Mobil's refinery in Antwerp, Begium. The recent expansion of the Belgian refinery is among other investments totaling more than US $ 2 billion over the last decade at the facility.
Antwerp/Belgium – Fluor's task in the expansion project is the new delayed coker unit that will convert heavy, higher sulfur residual oils into transportation fuel products such as marine gasoil and diesel fuel. Engineering and design work for the project began in June 2014, with groundbreaking in October.
“Fluor will provide our full suite of engineering, procurement and construction services on this lump-sum refinery expansion project for the European downstream market,” said Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business for the Europe, Africa and the Middle East region. “We are applying our modular execution and construction innovations in order to deliver schedule and capital efficiencies through an integrated solution to Exxon Mobil.”
