Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company of Manila, Inc. (AG&P) has recently awarded a contract to Houston, Texas-based McDermott International for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank for its Philippines LNG import and regasification terminal.
The project will particularly be undertaken by McDermott subsidiary CB&I Storage Solutions. CB&I 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.
CB&I is the world’s leading designer and builder of storage facilities, tanks and terminals with over 59,000 structures completed in its 130-year history.
Mechanical completion is slated for the third quarter of 2023, which would then be followed by purging and commissioning activities.
“We are confident we made the right choice to work in close cooperation with CB&I Storage Solutions on this technically advanced and challenging project,” AG&P Project Director Roeland Uytdewilligen said in a statement.
“We are proud to support AG&P in the delivery of the Philippines’ first LNG import terminal. The design of this first-of-a-kind full containment steel LNG tank highlights our innovation and technology leadership in the LNG storage industry and positions CB&I Storage Solutions to serve the growing small-scale LNG market in Asia and other regions with similar demands,” said CB&I SVP Cesar Canals.
