Sulfate Turpentine Conversion Plant
Scope: FEL 3 Study + Engineering, Procurement + Construction
Project Value: $50M
French-based DRT selected the Savannah, Georgia area to locate its first US processing plant. This grassroots facility, located on 60-acres, is capable of processing 25,000 metric tons per year of crude sulfate turpentine into alphapinene, beta-pinen, dipentene, desulfurized alpha pinene and myrcene. This is achieved through a series of distillation separation systems. Raw materials arrive in bulk by train and finished product is shipped in bulk by iso-tanks or in drums in its containers.
O’Neal’s engagement included a Phase One study (FEL 3) consisting of a feasibility study to provide DRT with preliminary design documents, a funding cost estimate for engineering, procurement, construction (EPC), and start-up/commissioning services, and regulatory assessment to determine the permitting requirements for the facility. O’Neal then provided EPC delivery of the project, reaching completion in twelve months.
