TechnipFMC SELECTED FOR THE EXPANSION OF THE BEAUMONT REFINERY

TechnipFMC has been awarded a large reimbursable contract by ExxonMobil for detailed engineering, procurement, and construction for the recently announced crude expansion project in Beaumont, Texas, USA.
The awarded scope covers the addition of four new units – atmospheric pipe still, kerosene hydrotreater, diesel hydrotreater and benzene recovery at ExxonMobil’s Refinery.
The new units of this expansion project will be integrated into the existing facilities at the refinery. The expansion will optimize the facility by giving ExxonMobil the flexibility to run lighter crudes.
Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business, stated: “We are pleased to have been awarded this contract by our long-term client, ExxonMobil. We look forward to bringing our global project execution capabilities, extensive U.S. Gulf Coast execution experience and leadership in the refining sector to this significant refinery expansion project for ExxonMobil.”
Built along the banks of the Neches River in 1903, ExxonMobil’s Beaumont refining facilities have grown into an integrated petrochemical complex that today supports the energy needs of the USA and the world.
The Beaumont refinery processes 366,000 barrels of crude oil per day and produces 2.8 billion gallons of gasoline annually. The Beaumont chemical plant produces building-block chemicals such as ethylene and propylene, synthetic fluids and lubricant base-stocks, and more than 25 different types of zeolite catalyst. The Beaumont lubricant blending and packaging plant manufactures lube oil, greases, greases used in the wind turbine industry, and is the only manufacturer of Mobil aviation greases. Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil, is manufactured and packaged in Beaumont.
