Technip FMC has been awarded a large reimbursable contract by Exxon Mobil for detailed engineering, procurement, and construction for the recently announced crude expansion project in Beaumont, Texas, USA.

London/UK; Beaumont/USA — The awarded scope covers the addition of four new units — atmospheric pipe still, kerosene hydrotreater, diesel hydrotreater and benzene recovery at Exxon Mobil’s Refinery.

The new units of this expansion project will be integrated into the existing facilities at the refinery. The expansion is to optimize the facility by giving the oil company the flexibility to run lighter crudes. The new unit is anticipated to start by 2022.

Exxon Mobil had previously announced plans to build and expand manufacturing facilities in the US Gulf region as part of its ‘Growing the Gulf’ initiative. Growing the Gulf projects include expansion of Beaumont’s polyethylene capacity by 65 %, a new unit in Beaumont that increases production of ultra-low sulfur fuels, and a new 1.5 million tonne per year ethane cracker at the company’s integrated Baytown chemical and refining complex in Texas.
