The contract, which was awarded by Técnicas Reunidas, is part of a clean fuels expansion project. 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.
Fabrication and project management will make use of CB&I’s local facilities in Al-Khobar and is intended to 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 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."
