Flour Corporation has been awarded a major Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract by NEXUS Gas Transmission, LCC, for the ultimate development of a 250 mile main natural gas transmission pipeline. The 42 inch diameter pipeline will deliver 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas from the Utica and Marcellus shale reservoirs to markets in the upper Midwest and Canada.

Flour is also responsible for the design and management of the construction of up to four compressor stations as well as four meter stations that will provide flow control and gas quality monitoring services.

Project cost is estimated to run approximately $2 billion.

Pierre Bechelany, Fluor's Senior Vice President of Pipelines and LNG, said "this project is an example of how Fluor can deliver our integrated solutions to support the continued industrial and consumer demand for natural gas in the U.S. This new award demonstrates Fluor's strengthened position in the North America pipeline market, and we will bring our decades of pipeline design and construction experience to deliver cost and schedule efficiencies to the NEXUS project.
