McDermott is to provide EPFC for six crude oil storage tanks in Texas, it said in a statement. The tanks will be part of an infrastructure project linking the Permian Basin in West Texas to the Gulf Coast.

The awarding of this contract by a major oil and gas operator highlights “world-class expertise, experience and capabilities” McDermott said. 

The scope of the project, which will be executed by CB&I Storage Solutions, includes the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction (EPFC) of six floating roof crude oil tanks (four with a 500,000-barrel capacity each and two with a 250,000-barrel capacity each). 

Engineering, procurement and fabrication will be performed at the company’s Houston Fairbanks office and fabrication facility, McDermott added. 

Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I Storage Solutions, said: “This new award is a testament to our service offerings and capabilities, including our vast experience in engineering, fabricating and constructing complex, large-scale storage tanks.”

The award will be reflected in McDermott’s fourth quarter 2019 backlog. It said the contract range for this award is between USD $1 million and $50 million.
