The contract has been awarded by Atlantic Gulf and Pacific Company (AG&P). It is for the engineering, procurement and construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank for AG&P’s Philippines LNG import and regasification terminal.

CB&I Storage Solutions will provide the first of two 60,000 cubic meter full containment steel LNG tanks along with geotechnical investigation, soil improvement, foundation and topside platform structure, pre-commissioning, purging and commissioning activities.

Commenting on the contract, CB&I Storage Solutions senior vice president, Cesar Canals said it is the first of a kind full containment steel LNG tank.

He added it positions “CB&I Storage Solutions to serve the growing small-scale LNG market in Asia and other regions with similar demands.”
