McDermott awarded contract for EPFC work

February 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- McDermott International, Inc. announced it has been awarded a contract by a major oil and gas operator for six crude oil storage tanks in Texas, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The storage tanks will be part of an energy infrastructure project linking the Permian Basin in West Texas to the Texas Gulf Coast.

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. 

"We have a strong track record of providing world-class storage solutions for major energy infrastructure projects all over the world," said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I Storage Solutions. "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.

The contract range for this award is between USD1 million and USD50 million.

As MRC informed before, in late November 2019, McDermott International, Inc. was awarded a sizeable technology contract from Baltic Chemical Company (BCC) and a sizeable Extended Basic Engineering (EBE) contract from China National Chemical Engineering No. 7 Construction Company Limited (CC7). The ethane cracking project is owned by Baltic Chemical Complex LLC, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha. McDermott's Lummus Technology will provide both the Process Design Package (PDP) Engineering and the license for its olefin production and recovery technology. Lummus Technology's proprietary ethylene steam cracking process is the most widely-applied process for the production of polymer-grade ethylene, representing approximately 40 percent of the world's capacity.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,093,260 tonnes in 2019, up by 6% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. PE shipments rose from both domestic producers and foreign suppliers. The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,260,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 4% year on year. Supply of almost all grades of propylene polymers increased, except for statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers).
