CB&I has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey contract valued over USD 50 million to design and construct LPG storage tanks that will be the largest of their kind ever built by CB&I and the largest in the Middle East. The contract includes an option for two additional tanks. CB&I will supply the tanks for the First Phase of the Al Khaleej Gas Project, which will produce natural gas from Qatar’s North Field, recover associated condensates and natural gas liquids for sale, and market pipeline gas for domestic and export customers. The EPC contractor for the onshore portion of the project is CMS&A, a joint venture of Chiyoda Corporation of Japan, Mitsui & Co. Ltd of Japan, Snamprogetti SpA of Italy and Al Mana Trading Co. WLL of Qatar. The gas project will be operated by RasGas Company Ltd of Qatar. CB&I’s work scope includes EPC of two double-wall steel full containment LPG tanks. One tank will store propane and has a capacity of 125,000 cubic meters, while the second tank will store butane and has a capacity of 110,000 cubic meeers. CB&I also will be responsible for the foundations, piping, electrical and instrumentation to grade. The schedule calls for completion of both tanks 27 months after award.
