Sasol Chemicals Mega Project

Location: Westlake, Louisiana

Primoris was awarded a contract to perform work on the first phase of Sasol Chemicals’ major expansion project in Westlake, Louisiana.

The first phase of the Sasol expansion entails construction of a world-scale ethane cracker consisting of seven process units that will be completed over a 5-year period. The second phase consists of a gas-to-liquids facility for conversion of natural gas into diesel and other liquid fuels.

The projects are expected to include over 2 million craft man-hours, 1.5 million cubic yards of excavation, 3 million cubic yards of backfill, 120,000 linear feet of underground piping, and 100,000 cubic yards of concrete foundation and paving.

Primoris Infrastructure & Maintenance will perform all clearing and site work, including mass excavation and backfill. Primoris Industrial will be responsible for deep foundations, underground piping and electrical duct banks, and foundations.

Manpower is estimated to peak at 1,000 during the course of construction. Work began in November 2014 and is expected to continue through the end of 2016.
