Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it has been selected by Marathon Petroleum Company LLC (MPC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a proposed $2.2 billion expansion at the company's Garyville, La., refinery. Marathon's final investment decision for this expansion is subject to completion of the FEED and receipt of applicable permits. The FEED contract value was not disclosed and will be booked in the fourth quarter.

"Fluor is pleased to continue its long-standing relationship with Marathon by being part of an important project that would provide much-needed refining capacity to the U.S. We are dedicated to supporting Marathon's success on this project," said Jeff Faulk, Fluor's group president of Energy & Chemicals.

Fluor's services will include front-end engineering for new processing units, as well as utilities and off sites. The contract will be performed over a 12-month period and executed in Fluor's office in Houston, with support from the company's global engineering centers.

"Marathon looks forward to working with Fluor through the design phase of this important project, which would increase the capacity at our Garyville refinery from 245,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 425,000 bpd, enabling us to better meet the fuel supply needs of our customers," said Gary R. Heminger, Marathon executive vice president and president of MPC.
