DALLAS, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Primoris Services Corporation (NASDAQ:PRIM) (“Primoris” or “Company”) today announced that Primoris’ OnQuest has been released to proceed on a fired heaters procurement award for a new petrochemical facility in Alberta, Canada. OnQuest is part of Primoris’ Power, Industrial, and Engineering segment.
- The original award was for the design and supply of four fired heaters and was announced in October 2015. In 2016, the project was put on hold by the owner. OnQuest completed the engineering in 2017 and has now been released to proceed with the procurement of the heaters.
- The heaters are a critical component of a new multi-billion polypropylene facility, the first propane-to-plastics facility in Canada. The new facility will benefit from low-cost feedstock, as shale gas drilling has led to an abundance of propane in Canada.
- In addition to the heaters, OnQuest will be designing and supplying associated equipment including the integrated steam system and overall Burner Management System (BMS) for the heaters.
- Delivery of the heaters is expected in the second quarter of 2019.
