ExxonMobil in Beaumont, Texas, selected Timec for a turnaround job starting in October. The contract could require up to 80 employees for exchanger, mechanical and piping work.

“We got the contract because of the high-quality product our guys in the field are delivering, with reference to safety, quality and production,” says Clint Tucker, project manager for Timec’ Lyondell and PBF project sites. “ExxonMobil has used the same contractors in Beaumont for some 10 to 15 years, so this is an exciting opportunity for us to get our foot in the door.”

Timec, a Ferrovial company, currently services ExxonMobil’s refinery in Joliet, Illinois. In East Texas, Timec has contracts with Lyondell in La Porte, Bayport and Matagorda, and Chevron in Mabee.
