“This is Fluor’s fifth major construction project in Freeport over the past six years,” said Jack Penley, Senior Vice President of Construction & Fabrication for Fluor.

“This will be MEGlobal’s first manufacturing unit in the United States, and our construction team’s focus on safety and quality are among the reasons that Fluor is the construction contractor of choice for the Freeport market.”

Fluor will be responsible for the installation of equipment, steel and piping for MEGlobal’s processing unit, with approximately 1,000 construction jobs set to be needed at peak construction for the work.

Operations are expected to begin in 2019.
