CB&I wins $60m Kuwait clean fuels deal
Company to deliver new storage tanks at Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery as part of $4.9bn project
CB&I — a US-based construction firm specialising in the energy sector, has announced that it has won a $60m contract to design, fabricate and build storage tanks at the $12bn Kuwait Clean Fuels project.
The company has been appointe by JGSK - a joint venture between Japan's JGC Corp and Korean firms GS E&C and SK E&C.
They are carrying out a $4.9bn package which involves a massive redevelopment of the Mina Al Ahmadi refinery for Kuwait National Petroleum Co.
CB&I's work involves building 39 storage tanks and two spheres. The president of the company's fabrication services operating group, Luke Scorsone, said: "CB&I has a long history of experience for new construction and reconstruction work in Kuwait, and our infrastructure and capabilities in the Middle East will allow us to execute the scope of work outlined for the CFP safely, efficiently and at the highest quality."
