Scorsone, executive vice president of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group, said in a company statement. "CB&I's ability to deliver single-source supply of every phase of this project – from concept to mechanical completion – provides DuPont with a cost-effective, low-risk solution as they expand their ethylene copolymer capacity to meet market demand."
