Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries Co. LLC (DRPIC) has awarded a consortium between CB&I and Saipem S.p.A. a contract for EPC Package 3 for the Duqm Refinery Project.

The consortium's scope of work for Package 3 encompasses the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a product export terminal at Duqm Port, a crude tank farm at Ras Markaz, as well as an 80 km crude oil pipeline. CB&I will be performing all of the EPC works for storage tanks at the export terminal and crude tank farm. Meanwhile, Saipem will perform the balance of the works. CB&I's portion of the contract is valued at approximately US$140 million.

Luke V. Scorsone, Executive Vice President of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group, said: "CB&I has decades of experience in Oman, including the supply of tanks and pressure spheres for Oman Oil Company at their refineries in Sohar and Muscat […] 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."

DRPIC is a joint venture between Oman Oil Co. and Kuwait Petroleum International.
