By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Aug. 1 --Eastman Chemical Co. has awarded a $12 million contract to Fluor Corp., Irving, Tex., to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for its $1.6 billion gasification plant to be built in Beaumont on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Eastman Chemical will develop and operate the plant, which primarily will use petroleum coke instead of natural gas to produce low-cost industrial chemicals such as methanol, hydrogen, and ammonia.

It is projected to be online in 2011.
