Turner Industries Enters Completion Phase at ExxonMobil PPG

As the second half of 2022 ramps up, Turner’s construction team at the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Polyolefins plant has shifted its focus to the completion of the Polypropylene Growth Project (PPG). Currently at 90-percent complete, this expansion is approximately four years in the making, and despite an unprecedented number of challenges — the COVID-19 pandemic, market volatility and multiple hurricanes — PPG is on track for a late 2022 start-up.

Turner Site Manager Scott “Butcher” Murray has led the charge for the construction team since day one. From site support to technical execution, a Turner workforce of almost 600 self-performed 2.5 million hours of work and provided support for site prep, civil, structural, equipment, piping, electrical and instrumentation services. Together with the scaffolding, insulation, painting, and abatement (SIPA) group, the construction team brought significant efficiencies to the project.

Working as a team across the project has been a focal initiative since day one. This, combined with human performance, is the key to success for a project of this magnitude.

Since 2018, Turner has worked with Worley and ExxonMobil to execute one of the largest projects in ExxonMobil’s Global Projects portfolio. The project recently received the 2021 ExxonMobil Global Projects President’s Safety, Security, Health and Environment (SSH&E) Award from ExxonMobil Global Projects President Jon Gibbs. It was the only project that received this award in North America.
