Fluor Awarded Construction Contract for Wood River Coker Refinery Expansion

Fluor Fluor Corporation announced
today that it was awarded a
contract for the construction and construction management of process, utility and offsites in connection with a coker refinery expansion project by WRB Refining LLC, a joint venture between ConocoPhillips and EnCana.

"We are poised to assist WRB Refining in building a refinery that will produce clean motor and transportation fuels," said David Seaton, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group.

Fluor completed the front-end engineering and design in 2007 for all process and utilities and offsites for the entire refinery coker expansion project prior to this transition into detailed execution. The project is located in Roxana, Illinois, approximately 25 miles northeast of St. Louis, Mo. Earlier this year, Fluor was awarded detailed engineering and procurement for selected portions of the project that was booked through the second quarter of 2008.

Fluor's total scope of work for this project includes detailed engineering, procurement and construction services for the refinery's utilities and offsites as well as for retrofitting portions of the existing refinery to accommodate the new Canadian feedstock. Fluor will also provide owner management team support to WRB Refining throughout the project's duration.

Fluor began front-end loading engineering services in May 2006 with completion in late 2007. It is expected that about 500 professionals will work from Fluor's Calgary, Houston and New Delhi, India, office locations.
