SEOUL, June 18 (Yonhap) -- SK Engineering & Construction Co., a major builder in South Korea, said Tuesday it has secured a US$14.2 million contract to complete a front-end engineering design (FEED) study for a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Belgium.

Under the deal with London-based chemicals giant INEOS, SK E&C will spend 12 months conducting the FEED study to assess project expenses and technical requirements for the plant in Antwerp, 50 kilometers north of Brussels.

SK Engineering said it has also been named the preferred negotiator for the construction of the PDH plant, estimated to cost $1 billion. A PDH plant converts propane into propylene, which is used in many petrochemical products.
