CB&I has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey contract to design and build storage tanks and pressure vessels for a petrochemical project in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The award is valued in excess of USD 40 million. CB&I’s contract is with Eastern Petrochemical Co. (SHARQ), an affiliate of Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC).
