CB&I to make pipes for Dow


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — CB&I, a Woodlands, Texas-based energy infrastructure giant, says it will provide pipe fabrication for the Dow Chemical Co. U.S. Gulf Coast Investment Program, which includes four new polyethylene plants in Louisiana and Texas and a new propylene and ethylene production unit in Texas.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1g2v6gZ ) the contract's value was not disclosed. Propylene and ethylene are used in making chemicals.

In 2013, CB&I acquired Baton Rouge-based Shaw Group for $3 billion. The combined company has around 50,000 employees worldwide, with more than 1,000 of those in Baton Rouge.
