ExxonMobil chooses Wood Group to automate polyethylene plant

November 16, 2016 – Wood Group has been awarded a $40 million contract by ExxonMobil Chemical to provide main automation contractor services, including detailed design and site construction of the process control systems, for a grassroots polyethylene plant to be built in Beaumont, Texas. Wood Group completed the front-end engineering design for the process control systems in 2015.

Wood Group is currently providing process control systems detailed engineering, procurement and fabrication services for ExxonMobil Chemical’s multi-billion dollar expansion project at the Baytown and Mont Belvieu plants near Houston. Much of the work done for that project will be used for this new project, applying a design-one, build-two concept that helps to reduce project costs and schedules.
