Source: 11/10/2003, Location: Middle East

CB&I has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey contract valued at approximately US$50 million for all tankage at the grassroots Sohar Refinery in Sohar, Oman, approximately 250 km northwest of Muscat. The refinery is owned jointly by the Sultanate of Oman and Oman Oil Company. CB&I's contract is with JGC Corporation, the main EPC contractor for the entire US$1 billion facility. The contract was booked in the third quarter of 2003.

CB&I's work scope includes engineering, material supply, fabrication, construction, testing, painting and insulation of 55 miscellaneous storage tanks, 16 spheres and one elevated water storage tank. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2005. When finished, the project will provide the refinery with more than 1,000,000 cubic meters of bulk liquid storage and more than 40,000 cubic meters of pressurized storage for propylene and LPG. The total amount of steel to be used in the project exceeds 25,000 metric tons.

"We are very pleased to be working with JGC on this project and continuing our long history of successful project execution together," said Gerald M. Glenn, CB&I's Chairman, President and CEO.

CB&I has worked in Oman since the 1970s and has built several large-scale tankage projects, including a 600,000 barrel (approximately 95,000 cubic meter) storage facility in Muscat in 1999 and a 1,000,000 barrel (approximately 159,000 cubic meter) storage facility in Mina al Fahal in 1993.
