The Shaw Group has recently completed services work for the addition of a Shaw proprietary Ultra Selective Cracking (USC) furnace for Indian natural gas company Gail in Pata, Uttar Pradesh.
Maumbai/India – Shaw provided engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the furnace project and worked approximately one million workhours without a lost time incident. Contextually, The Shaw Group has recently assumed full ownership and control of the operations of its Mumbai office, which previously operated as a 50/50 joint venture with an Indian partner.
“With the excellent safety performance and successful commissioning of this furnace, Shaw has achieved yet another major milestone of executing engineering, procurement and construction management projects in India for a major client,” said Lou Pucher, president of Shaw’s Energy & Chemicals Group.
Shaw already has undertaken several engineering operations for Gail in Pata in the last twenty years. In December 2010, the American engineering company announced plans to provide proprietary technology and basic engineering for a 400,000 tonnes per year ethylene production at the site.
