Engineering and construction company, Clough, has received full Notice to Proceed (NTP) for the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning (EPCC) and start-up of a $620 million petrochemical facility located in the Pasadena industrial complex, Texas. 

The project is Clough’s first major contract award following the February 2019 acquisition of a reputable EPC business in the United States and underscores the successful establishment of Clough in North America.

Once completed, the project will deliver a 28,000 bpd alkylate facility consisting of a new ethylene dimerisation unit and a new alkylation unit to produce high octane alkylate for sale into the gasoline blending market.

Peter Bennett, Clough CEO and Managing Director, said: “This project marks our first major award for our newly established U.S. office and underlines our position as a trusted EPCC partner in the Gulf Coast and greater North American markets. This project compliments our ability to take a project from the front-end engineering phase through to plant start-up. Our locally based team of engineering, project management, construction and commissioning experts bring innovative project delivery solutions to the energy and infrastructure markets, all backed by a 100-year global history that reinforces our ability to deliver safe and efficient operations while maximizing project value.”
