CB&I wins Saudi Aramco Shell refinery deal

RIYADH, December 14, 2017

CB&I, a leading global player in the technology and infrastructure services sector, has announced it has been awarded a contract worth more than $95 million by Saudi Aramco Shell Refinery (Sasref).

Sasref is a joint venture between two of the biggest oil and gas companies in the world Saudi Aramco and Shell.

The scope of work includes the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) for Sasref's modernisation and expansion of its existing refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

On the contract win, Duncan Wigney, the executive vice-president of engineering and construction at CB&I, said: "This award demonstrates CB&I's ability to deliver value to Sasref and our other customers in the Middle East. It also enhances CB&I's position in the region as a leading provider of energy infrastructure solutions, from conceptual design to fabrication to EPC delivery."

CB&I, he stated, had completed the conceptual design and Feed (front-end engineering design) phases of the project, while working with Sasref to optimise investment on the new refinery configuration.

According to Wigney, the relationship between CB&I and Sasref extends back for more than a decade, and the duo had been collaborating successfully during this time.

The Aramco-Shell venture aspires to become the best petroleum refinery company not only in Saudi Arabia, but also in Asia and Middle East.

CB&I's integrated solutions will give Sasref the operating flexibility needed to generate maximum returns through sustainable fuels production, which meets Euro V regulations for cleaner emissions, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
