CBI/ST Limited, a subsidiary of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V., has been awarded a three-year contract by the Alliance Refining Company Limited (ARC) of Rayong Province, Thailand to maintain its refineries and associated marine terminals at its North and South Production Units. The two refineries have a combined capacity of 300,000 barrels/day. CBI/ST’s wide-ranging work scope will include refinery operational support, unit turnarounds, mechanical maintenance of process unit equipment, civil and piping construction, painting, tank repairs, building and grounds maintenance, and work planning.
ARC is an operating alliance between Star Petroleum Refining Company Limited (SPRC, a joint venture between Caltex Trading and Transport Corporation and the Petroleum Authority of Thailand) and Rayong Refinery Company Limited (a joint venture between Shell International Holdings Ltd. and the Petroleum Authority of Thailand). This new award builds on prior long-term maintenance agreements, but expands CBI/ST’s scope to both of ARC’s refineries and to their associated marine terminals, and also elevates the relationship to a Partnering Agreement. Goals of the agreement include incurring zero safety incidents and environmental emissions, lowering overall costs, maximizing the availability of ARC’s refineries and terminals, and achieving Best in Class maintenance performance.
