THE WOODLANDS, US: A consortium between Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB&I) and Saipem SpA has been awarded a contract by Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries Company LLC (DRPIC) for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) Package 3 for the Duqm Refinery project.

DRPIC is a joint venture between Oman Oil Company and Kuwait Petroleum International.

The consortium's scope of work for Package 3 encompasses the EPC of a product export terminal at Duqm Port, a crude tank farm at Ras Markaz and an 80-kilometer crude oil pipeline.

CB&I will be performing all of the EPC works for storage tanks at the export terminal and crude tank farm, while Saipem – the leader of Package 3 – will perform the balance of the works. CB&I's portion of the contract is valued at approximately $140 million.

"CB&I has decades of experience in Oman, including the supply of tanks and pressure spheres for Oman Oil Company at their refineries in Sohar and Muscat. This award provides our customers with certainty in price, schedule and quality, and also creates more work opportunities for Omanis, which is one of the goals of the Duqm project," said Luke Scorsone, executive vice president of CB&I's fabrication services operating group.
