King & Spalding’s Construction Team Leads on Largest Texas and Louisiana Project Starts of 2016

HOUSTON,  May 2, 2016 — King & Spalding’s construction practice has provided key advice to the sponsors on the top project starts of 2016 in Texas and Louisiana.

Engineering News-Record (ENR) Texas and Louisiana recently named Cheniere’s Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project Trains 1 & 2, Sasol’s Ethane Cracker and Derivatives Complex, Freeport’s Liquefaction Project Train 3 and Yuhuang Chemical’s Methanol Plant as the four largest project starts in the two states this year. The full list can be found here.   

King & Spalding’s construction team handled the pivotal construction and engineering-related contracts for all four projects.

The projects tapped into King & Spalding’s market-leading construction practice, with Scott Greer – head of the firm’s worldwide construction transactional practice – and fellow partner Angus McFadden handling the matters. They were assisted by associates David Strickland, Jonathan Katz and Dimitri Tagaropulos.

“These projects are collectively worth more than $25 billion so the construction and engineering contracts are critical to ensuring the deliverability and long-term success of the projects,” Greer said. “Securing a pivotal role on the four largest project starts in Texas and Louisiana of the year is an excellent endorsement of the strength and depth of our practice.”
