Braskem Idesa awards large EPC contract for the Ethylene XXI project

Gerald Ondrey

Braskem Idesa S.A.P.I. awarded to a joint venture (JV) formed by Odebrecht (40%), Technip (40%) and ICA Fluor (20%) a contract worth more than $2.7 billion (around €2.1 billion) for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a petrochemical complex to be built in the Coatzacoalcos/Nanchital region, in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

The petrochemical complex will include the following facilities:

• An ethane-based ethylene cracker, producing 1-million ton/yr, using Technip proprietary technology

• Two high density polyethylene plants using Ineos Innovene technology

• A low density polyethylene plant using BASEL Lupotech technology

• Storage, waste treatment and utility facilities, including a 150-MW combined cycle power and steam co-generation plant

• A multimodal logistics platform for shipment of 1-million ton/yr of polyethylene via bulk train, bulk truck or bagged

• Administrative, maintenance, control room and ancillary buildings

The JV project team will execute the contract in several operating centers mainly located in Nanchital and Mexico City (Mexico), Rome (Italy), Lyon (France) and Rotterdam (The Netherlands). The project is scheduled for completion, with the plant ready for start up, in June 2015.

This award follows the successful execution of the front-end engineering design of the ethylene, HDPE and utilities contracts awarded to Technip in the first quarter of 2011 and the front end engineering of the offsites facilities executed by Odebrecht and ICA Fluor during 2011.
