CB&I to supply heaters, steam reformer for big Oman refining project

CB&I has been awarded a contract valued in excess of $50 million by the Daelim-Petrofac venture for the design and supply of delayed coking, hydrocracking, crude and vacuum heaters and a steam reformer for the Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Co. (Orpic) project located in Sohar, Oman.

Under separate contracts with Orpic, CB&I provided the process technology for the delayed coker unit and its Chevron Lummus Global joint venture provided the technology for the hydrocracker unit. 

CB&I also performed the FEED, as previously announced, and is serving as project management consultant to Orpic for the project.

"We have successfully executed a range of projects for Orpic," said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I's technology operating group. 

"This is another contract that emphasizes our ability to provide a complete supply chain solution for our customers," he added.
