This chapter describes the case of a US$ 0.6 billion petrochemical process plant for the joint venture between Shell and Mitsubishi on Seraya Island in Singapore, which was designed and constructed in the period 1990-1997.

He was interviewed in depth by the authors to surface the underlying principles of his managerial approach.*

At the end of this chapter we have added the relevant management experiences of Mr Frans of his subsequent construction project during the period 2001-2006: a US$ 4.3 billion Joint Venture between CNOOC and Shell for a chemical plant in Guangdong Province of P. R. China, known as the Shell Nan-hai project.
