We have 21,000 employees worldwide. We offer a full scope of services from conceptual design and technology licensing through engineering, procurement fabrication and construction to final commissioning and beyond.
Chicago Bridge & Iron has been in existence for nearly 125 years. I know probably the previous presenter liked to talk about his 100 year anniversary, I am sure you heard that. But we’re nearly 125 years young, and as importantly, we have been a multi-national company for most of that time, and it’s been a real competitive advantage for us and our customers to be able to demonstrate actual experience in virtually every region in most countries throughout the world, and primarily through our legacy businesses or in the resumes we’ve acquired with Lummus Engineering and Lummus Technology.
This is a picture of what we call our dream harbor. We think it exists somewhere in probably Texas and Louisiana but it certainly is just an illustration of the type of work in an energy infrastructure we do. Certainly that includes upstream where we serve the oil and gas industries and certainly in the 20 th century, when we began building storage tanks for then a somewhat young oil business. Today, we offer a comprehensive range of technology and EPC services for the upstream oil and gas sector with primarily focused on offshore oil and gas production systems, platform topsides and floating production, storage and offloading facility FPSOs, onshore oil and gas field production, onshore pipelines natural gas processing, LNG liquefaction plants and regasification terminals as well as bulk liquid storage structures.
Also downstream, some of the best known names of the industry have worked with CB&I to design and build downstream oil and gas processing facilities, and for Lummus technologies to provide cost effective license technologies and catalysts. Of course, we focus on refinery process units, petrochemical facilities, gasification plants, hydrogen generation plants, sulfur processing plants and bulk storage facilities. And then certainly on LNG where we have a very strong position, we serve the liquefied natural gas industry for more than 50 years, and we’ve designed and built nearly every type of LNG project operating on a global basis. We offer a comprehensive range of technology and engineering, procurement fabrication and construction services for the LNG industry around the world.
