The Star program aims to further integrate MPC’s former Texas City refinery into the Galveston Bay refinery. Under the terms of the agreement, Fluor will be responsible for engineering and procurement services of the project.

Texas/USA – Fluor Corporation has recently announced that it was selected by a division of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) to execute the engineering and procurement scope for MPC’s South Texas Asset Repositioning (Star) program at its Galveston Bay refinery in Texas City, Texas. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the first quarter of 2018.

The Star program further integrates MPC’s former Texas City refinery into the adjacent Galveston Bay refinery, which is now the second largest refinery in the US. It will improve the refinery’s efficiency and reliability by increasing the residual oil processing capabilities, upgrading the crude unit and integrating facility logistics.

Fluor has been engaged in the Star program since 2013, performing the feasibility studies and early engineering work. The program is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

Fluor is also currently providing engineering, procurement and construction management services on the reconfiguration that will enable the Galveston Bay refinery to achieve updated US Environmental Protection agency Tier 3 gasoline sulfur standards.
