OilPipesA joint venture of Fluor (NYSE: FLR) and Empresas ICA (NYSE: ICA) will begin engineering, procurement and construction work on a diesel refinery in Mexico under a $1 billion contract with Mexican state-owned petroleum firm Pemex Transformacion Industrial.

ICA Fluor will provide commissioning services for two diesel hydrodesulfurization trains and related facilities under phase two of the Madero Clean Diesel project in Tamaulipas, Mexico, Fluor said Monday.

The construction of the refining facility is part of Pemex’s clean fuels initiative that aims to boost Mexico’s sulfur diesel production.

Fluor expects the project to conclude by the first quarter of 2018.
