CB&I Awarded Contract for Tacoma LNG Storage and Refuelling Facility

Wednesday November 30, 2016

CB&I today announced it has been awarded a contract valued at more than $200 million by Puget Sound Energy, Inc. (PSE) for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of PSE's multi-purpose liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and fuelling terminal in Tacoma, which will support LNG bunkering.

The scope of work is said to include a 30,000 cubic metre (cbm) full containment storage tank, liquefier, and vaporizer for the facility that will provide bunkering, peak shaving, and truck loading capabilities.

"CB&I and PSE have a historical relationship, and we are pleased to be working with them on this project," said Luke Scorsone, CB&I's Executive Vice President of Fabrication Services.

"We are proud to have been selected to design and build this multi-purpose LNG facility. CB&I has a leading position across all aspects of the LNG industry, and we look forward to helping PSE deliver dependable, affordable natural gas service to transportation companies as well as residential and commercial customers."

In October, Ship & Bunker reported that a multi-party settlement means that the State of Washington's utilities commission will not regulate the ship bunkering business at the Tacoma facility.
