Bechtel-led Consortium to Design New Petrochemical Complex in Ohio

HOUSTON, Texas - September 4, 2015

Companies Bring World-Class Project Delivery Experience 

A consortium of Bechtel, JGC America and Samsung Engineering America has been selected by PTT GC America to perform front-end engineering and design for a new petrochemical complex in Belmont County, Ohio. The facility will use ethane extracted from the Marcellus and Utica Shale formations to produce ethylene, high-density polyethylene, high-purity ethylene oxide, and mono-ethylene glycol. 

“This is an exciting project that will bring jobs and economic development to the region,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit. “Our team is looking forward to working with PTT GC to deliver the most efficient design for a world-class facility applying our extensive project delivery experience.”

Bechtel has been executing major petrochemical projects for more than 60 years, including signature projects like Borouge Petrochemical Complex in Abu Dhabi, CSPC Nanhai in China, and LP-7 in Canada. The company is currently building an ethylene plant in Baytown, Texas.
