TORONTO (ICIS news)--Mexico’s state oil and petrochemicals major Pemex has awarded a $268m (€193m) contract for a cryogenic plant at its Poza Rica gas complex in Veracruz state, an engineering contractor for the project said on Thursday.

The project was awarded by Pemex’s gas and petrochemicals affiliate, Pemex Gas y Petroquímica Básica, to a consortium between Fluor’s Mexican joint venture, ICA Fluor, and Germany’s Linde, Fluor said.

ICA Fluor and Linde would be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, testing and start-up of the plant that would have a processing capacity of 200m cubic feet of natural gas per day, Fluor said.

Project work would start in August and was expected to be completed over a two-year term, Fluor said.
