Reclamation At Pulau Ubin & Pulau Tekong Project (Part 1)
In October 2000, Partners TOA Corporation and Jan De Nul commenced the 1,400-hectare of land reclamation
project at Pulau Ubin and Pulau Tekong, Singapore. This massive project for housing and residential purposes involves the
filling of 200 million m³ of sand, capital dredging of waterways, the construction of an offshore dumping ground for disposal
of 24 million m³ of soft clays, the construction of a staging area on the mainland using 6 million m³ of good earth and 3.5
million m³ of clay and bund construction area length of 15 km. The project, being worth S$1.84 billion, is suppose to
be completed November of 2005 however due to unforeseeable circumstances the project is still in progress and is expected
to last until 2007 indefinitely.

BPC Polyethylene Plant Project
The polyethylene plant project commenced in December 1997 at the Petrochemical Park, Bataan, Philippines, owned
by a consortium led by British Petroleum, Petronas Berhad of Malaysia and some local investors. This project worth U$150-million
completed in March 2000 involves heavy lifting and construction of temporary jetty for the unloading of two gigantic reactors,
construction of four super structures, numerous pipe bridges, huge foundations for tanks, flare stack, and buildings &
structure, platforms, walkways, roads, and various structures.
The plant is estimated to run at a capacity of 275,000 metric tons per year and started commercial production
in 2000. It is to produce polyethylene resins in the form of white pellets, which are used as raw materials for PET bottles,
films, monobloc chairs, PVC pipes and other applications.
