Fluor Wins Contract for Habshan Gas Processing Plant

Fluor Corporation has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract by one of the largest gas processing companies in the world.

Under the terms of the $22-million Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd. (GASCO) contract, Fluor will use its expertise to modify existing facilities at GASCO's Habshan gas processing plant and install a new propane refrigeration package and absorber column. The work will maximize ethane recovery at the site.

Upon completion the plant will extract 400 tons of ethane per day. The ethane will be used as feedstock to downstream petrochemical companies related to GASCO and its parent, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company.

Fluor's Aliso Viejo, Calif., office is executing the work, which is estimated to be complete in December 2004.
