San Antonio-headquartered Zachry Group and Japan-backed Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America have won a construction contract for the recently approved Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) project that is being developed by a joint venture of Exxon Mobil and Saudi Arabia's Sabic near Corpus Christi, Texas.

The chemicals complex includes a 1.8 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) ethane steam cracker, a 1.1 MTPA monoethylene glycol unit, and a polyethylene unit that will be built by Zachry Group, according to Construction Week's sister title Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East.

According to the RPME report, Zachry Group planned to begin major construction work on the project in Gregory, Texas in 2019, with the polyethylene unit due for completion in 2022.

Commenting on the project, Zachry Group's projects group president, Ralph Biediger, said: "The award represents not only our ability to execute a project of this scale on schedule and on budget, but also proves that we are aligned with GCGV in our commitment to keep each person safe while doing so."
