SNC-Lavalin, Nova Chemicals EPC contract

SNC-Lavalin (SNC) confirmed that it has, in consortium with TechnipFMC, been awarded a lump sum EPC contract to supply NOVA Chemicals with two gas cracking furnaces. This award supports the recently announced third phase of the conversion and expansion of NOVA Chemicals’ Corunna cracker, which is expected to increase the unit’s current ethylene capacity by more than 50% and is linked to the construction of a new polyethylene facility being developed by NOVA Chemicals. Prior to this EPC award, TechnipFMC provided the associated process technology under a separate licensing agreement with NOVA Chemicals; both TechnipFMC and SNC-Lavalin supported NOVA Chemicals in the front-end engineering (EDS / FEED) development for the gas cracking furnaces.

Under the agreement, TechnipFMC will have primary responsibility for the detailed engineering and procurement aspects of the work, while SNC-Lavalin will be responsible for the modular fabrication, erection, construction and pre-commissioning of the work.
