CB&I Storage Solutions, McDermott’s storage business, was awarded a contract in July valued between $50 million and $250 million for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of 14 oil storage tanks in Burnaby, British Columbia. The tanks are part of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, which will increase the nominal capacity of the Trans Mountain Pipeline System to 890,000 barrels of oil per day from 300,000 barrels per day. The scope of the contract includes 14 flat-bottom atmospheric storage tanks of various sizes up to 185 ft (56.4 m) in diameter with a secondary containment. One existing tank will be demolished. The engineering and installation of the tanks will be performed by Canadian workers. Additional changes will ensure continued facility safety and include full-surface fire-protection systems and odor abatement equipment on all new tanks. The expansion will also include an enhanced stormwater treatment system, according to Trans Mountain. Changes to the terminal will include relocation of current delivery pipelines to accommodate the expansion and connection to the existing electrical grid.
