Fluor was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for the utilities, offsites and infrastructure scope of work for JG Summit’s petrochemical complex expansion in Batangas City, Philippines.

The JG Summit Petrochemicals Group will be increasing ethylene production by 160,000 tons per year and propylene production by 110,000 tons per year. The Group will also add four new units to the facility: 2nd stage pygas hydrogenation unit, aromatics and butadiene extraction units, and a new bimodal high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plant. The existing polypropylene (PP) plant will also expand its production capacity by 110,000 tons per year. The utilities and offsites project will therefore provide new and expanded utility systems to meet the demands of the complex, as well as upgrade the existing infrastructure.

JG Summit is the sole naphtha cracker operator in the Philippines and will continue to operate the facility during the construction phase. A 6-week turnaround has been scheduled for mid-2019, at which point all critical tie-in activities must be completed.

The challenge to the project will be to complete construction, perform the tie-in works and have the system pre-comm​issioned and ready for full expanded plant operations after the turnaround.​​

Fluor is executing EPCM for the complex’s utilities, offsites and infrastructure from our Manila office, which is located only 60 km from the facility, allowing for greater interaction between engineering and construction. In 2017, Fluor completed the simplified front-end engineering and design work for the expanded utilities and offsites systems.

Additionally, Fluor’s Manila office is also providing program management consulting services for the project, simplifying the interface process with the other EPC contractors.Fluor is executing the utilities, offsites and infrastructure scope for JG Summit’s petrochemical complex expansion. The project is expected to be completed in phases, with the cracker expansion, new 2nd stage pygas hydrogenation, and new aromatics and butadiene extraction units completed in mid-2019, and with the polypropylene expansion and new HDPE facility completed in mid-2020.

JGC Awarded the Contract for a Power Plant Construction Project in the Philippines

Full-scale expansion into the energy infrastructure field under the new medium-term management plan

Yokohama-Japan- JGC Corporation announced today that, with JGC Philippines Inc., its subsidiary in the Philippines, it has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey basis contract for the Phase II construction work for a Coal-Fired Power Plant Construction Project planned in the Sarangani Province, Mindanao, Philippines, by Sarangani Energy Corporation (Capital subscribers:Alsons Consolidated Resources, Inc. 75%, Toyota Tsusho Corporation 25%).

The contract covers the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services for the Phase II construction work (105 MW x 1 train) for a coal-fired power plant with a capacity of 210 MW (105 MW x 2 trains).  The project is scheduled for completion in April, 2019.

The plant is located in the province of Sarangani, about 1,100 km south of Manila, and the electric power generated is intended to serve the needs of the province, including its major city of General Santos, thereby increasing the potential for industrial growth in the province and contributing to an improved standard of living for the population.  With a growing population and steady economic growth, the Philippines is facing an increasing demand for electric power, and this situation is of particular concern on the island of Mindanao, where the shortage of power has been especially severe.

Minimizing the environmental impact of this project is also a high priority.  This has been addressed by the use of a circulating fluidized bed boiler that makes possible two stage combustion at low temperatures, which inhibits the generation of atmospheric pollutants, such as Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and Sulfur Oxide (SOx).  This, combined with removal of the particulates contained in the off-gas, ensures that the effects of the operation of this plant on the environment are kept to a minimum.

JGC Philippines was established in 1989 and initially undertook detailed design work for JGC projects, but in recent years, it has applied its expertise gained through that experience to carry out EPC work independently for domestic projects within the Philippines.  In this project, the combination of JGC Philippines’ knowledge of local conditions and JGC’s project management skills not only will lead to the successful completion of this project but will also open the door to further expansion of the JGC Group’s activities in other areas, as well.

JGC’s new medium-term management plan, “Beyond the Horizon,” announced in May of this year, directly targets JGC’s basic goal of expanding its business beyond projects in the oil and gas sector to other energy infrastructure, industrial infrastructure and social infrastructure projects.  Under that plan, with this project, JGC is taking a large step into the field of power generation, and further, JGC anticipates that this project will contribute to the growth expected in the ASEAN region.

The Petron Bataan Refinery (PBR) is the country’s largest integrated crude oil refinery and petrochemicals complex. Inaugurated in 1961 with a capacity of 25,000 barrels per day, it has grown to its current rated capacity of 180,000 barrels-per-day.

Located in the province of Limay, Bataan, PBR processes crude oil into a full range of petroleum products including gasoline, diesel, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), jet fuel, kerosene, and industrial fuel oil. PBR also produces petrochemical feedstock benzene, toluene, mixed xylene, and propylene.

PBR is at the heart of Petron’s operations. For over 50 years, the facility has served the country’s demand for quality fuel products, ensuring a reliable and continuous supply to power the nation forward. Run by Filipino refining experts, PBR is a showcase of the world-class technical capability of our countrymen as well as first-rate technology.

Through the years, PBR has achieved several firsts in the industry including the production of revolutionary and environment-friendly fuel products, international certifications (e.g. International Management Systems), and safety milestones among others.

Petron continues to invest in its refinery to better serve the nation. In the past decade, it has employed its refinery to formulate petroleum products that fit the lifestyles of Filipinos. It has also commissioned units that allow the local production of fuels that meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act.

Petron is the only local producer of petrochemical feedstock. Petrochemical production is strategic since it is one of the pillars of an industrialized nation. Petrochemicals are raw materials used in a wide variety of applications, including food packaging, rope, sacks, plastic parts, home appliance, automotive parts, reusable containers, etc.

In 2011, Petron embarked on the Refinery Expansion Project (RMP-2) in celebration of PBR’s golden anniversary. Targeted for completion in the next few years, RMP-2 will make the refinery more competitive in the Asia-Pacific region by significantly increasing its production rate, thus improving the country’s oil supply security.

The decision to undertake this massive project was born out of the vision to make the Petron Bataan Refinery one of the most modern integrated oil refining and petrochemical complexes in Asia.

Furthermore, RMP-2 is a reflection of Petron’s belief in the country’s prospects and staunch partnership with the Filipino towards nation-building. As it grows its refinery, Petron hopes to contribute in the growth of its motherland.
