EQUATE Group has added a new global award to its list of accomplishments, as the MEGlobal BookraMEG Oyster Creek project has been named an Award of Merit winner in the Power/Industrial category of the ENR Best Project Awards of 2020. The world-scale 750,000 metric-tonne-per-annum monoethylene (MEG) glycol and di-ethylene glycol facility (DEG) was constructed in Oyster Creek, Texas ahead of schedule, below budget and with an excellent safety record. It was the first time EQUATE Group constructed a new ethylene glycol (EG) facility in the United States.

EQUATE CEO-elect and senior vice president Naser Al-Dousari credited the project team and ownership for working together to build a world-class facility in a region that provides access to plentiful feedstocks and global markets.

“We are truly humbled by this global honour,” Al-Dousari said. “This project demonstrated what can be accomplished when you bring together global petrochemical leadership with a dedicated expert project team. We thank everyone who played a part in delivering the BookraMEG project to EQUATE’s portfolio and strengthening our ability to reach customers around the world.”

The project was co-submitted for award by MEGlobal, Worley (general contractor) and Fluor (construction contractor) and was one of 30 selected from a record number of entries. The submissions were judged by an international panel of industry experts.

“The panel looked at projects in many markets and examined safety performance, innovations, challenges, and design and construction quality – with a special emphasis on the diversity of global project teams and their collaboration,” said Engineering News-Record editor Scott Blair in a news release. “They also considered how the project benefits the local community and/or the construction industry.”

The winners of ENR’s Global Best Project Awards will be celebrated at a virtual ceremony in September.
