CB&I-Saipem consortium wins EPC contract on Oman refinery project

Contract was awarded by Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries Company (DRPIC)


A consortium consisting of CB&I and Saipem has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Duqm refinery project in Oman. The EPC Package 3 contract was awarded by the DRPIC, a joint venture between Oman Oil Company and Kuwait Petroleum International.

As per the contract, the consortium’s scope of work includes the EPC of a product export terminal at Duqm Port, a crude tank farm at Ras Markaz and an 80-km crude oil pipeline.

The company will perform all of the EPC works for storage tanks at the export terminal and crude tank farm, while Saipem – the leader of Package 3 – will perform the balance of the works.

“This award provides our customer with certainty in price, schedule and quality, and also creates more work opportunities for Omanis, which is one of the goals of the Duqm project. We have decades of experience in Oman, including the supply of tanks and pressure spheres for Oman Oil Company at their refineries in Sohar and Muscat,” said Luke V. Scorsone, executive vice president of CB&I’s Fabrication Services.

CB&I said its portion of the contract is valued at approximately $140m.
