McDermott International, Ltd has announced that its CB&I Storage Solutions business has been awarded a contract by Atlantic Gulf and Pacific Company of Manila, Inc. (AG&P) for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a second liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank and double-wall LNG bullet for AG&P’s Philippines LNG import and regasification terminal called Philippines LNG (PLNG) in Batangas Bay, Philippines.

“It has been a privilege to work in close coordination with CB&I Storage Solutions on the unique design of the first full containment steel LNG tank,” says Roeland Uytdewilligen, Project Director of AG&P. “They continue to be our preferred partner for the development of the second LNG storage tank for our PLNG facility, the first LNG import and regasification terminal in the Philippines.”

CB&I Storage Solutions was awarded the first LNG storage tank by AG&P earlier this year. The additional scope includes a 1,200-cubic-metre shop-fabricated double wall LNG bullet and a second 60,000-cubic-metre full containment steel LNG tank along with geotechnical investigation, soil improvement, foundation and topside platform structure, pre-commissioning, purging and commissioning activities.

“We value the confidence that AG&P has in our organisation to award us this additional scope of work,” says Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I Storage Solutions. “Our fabrication facility in Thailand specialises in the production of prefabricated storage solutions and will build the LNG bullet for delivery to Batangas. We believe there’s no better team in the world with the experience, expertise and local resources to execute this high-profile project.”

Mechanical completion is slated for the first quarter of 2022 for the LNG bullet and second quarter of 2024 for the second tank with purging and commissioning activities to follow.
