CB&I has been awarded a contract by Técnicas Reunidas, S.A. for new product storage tanks that will be part of a clean fuels expansion project at Saudi Aramco's refinery in Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia.
CB&I's scope includes the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of nine flat bottom tanks, as well as modifications to numerous existing tanks, all of which were previously supplied by CB&I. In support of Saudi Aramco's In-Kingdom Total Value Add programme, CB&I will provide all fabrication and project management utilising its local facilities in Al-Khobar.
The project will also facilitate CB&I's ongoing efforts to train, develop and employ Saudi Arab nationals in key positions.
"This award reinforces our global relationship with Técnicas Reunidas and builds on our nearly 80 year history of supporting Saudi Aramco," said Luke V. Scorsone, Executive Vice President of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group. "Beginning in 1938, CB&I has provided nearly all of the product storage at the Ras Tanura facility."
