Technip Awarded Contract by ExxonMobil

Technip USA Corporation has signed a multi-year contract with ExxonMobil Global Services to provide front-end engineering services.

Technip will provide engineering services to ExxonMobil's Baytown refinery and chemical plants as ExxonMobil implements its programs to significantly reduce its NOx emissions and contributes to the Houston-Galveston-area efforts to attain air quality standards.

Technip has been involved in NOx abatement projects since the 1980s in California. When other states began, in the late 1990s, to propose similar regulations to reduce NOx emissions, Technip was strongly positioned to provide its expertise in this field. In the early implementation work for companies with sources in the eight-county Houston-Galveston region, for instance, Technip has already been involved in NOx reduction programs for BP, Equistar, OxyChem, Nova, Dow, Enterprise Products, and Phillips.

Commenting this contract award, Larry Pope, CEO of Technip USA noted: "This NOx reduction project is very important to Technip and we are pleased to be able to leverage our NOx expertise to help ExxonMobil meeting their requirements cost effectively".
