CB&I has been awarded a contract, valued in excess of
US$750 million, by Imperial Oil Resources for work on the Kearl
expansion project in Alberta,
Canada, the companies said on Wednesday.
CB&Is work scope on the expansion project includes the engineering,
procurement, module assembly and construction of a second bitumen
extraction plant, froth tank farms, multiple storage tanks, and
six froth settling units, the company said.
This award builds on our EPC contract for the Kearl
Initial Development project, which we began work on in
early 2008, said Philip K. Asherman, CEO.
We are very pleased to be awarded the expansion contract. We believe this
reflects the clients confidence in our capabilities and
the quality of work we have provided on the project to date.
