CB&I to build storage spheres for Petrofac at Saudi grassroots refinery

CB&I has been awarded a contract valued in excess of $60 million by Petrofac Saudi Arabia Co., officials confirmed on Tuesday.

The project scope includes the engineering, procurement and construction of product storage spheres at a grassroots refinery being constructed in Saudi Arabia.

"We currently are constructing crude oil storage tanks for Petrofac at the same project site," said Luke Scorsone, president of CB&I's fabrication services operating group. 

"This new sphere award builds on CB&I's service offerings for our client and the operational excellence we have demonstrated in Saudi Arabia since the 1930s," he added.
