HOUSTON, July 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal (Nasdaq:ENG), a leading provider of energy-related project delivery solutions, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, ENGlobal Technical Services, Inc. ("ETS"), has been awarded a multi-year contract by the U.S. Department of Defense.

ETS is one of three firms that was awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ), cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for technical and maintenance services for automated tank gauging, automated fuel service stations, and automated fuel handling equipment (AFHE). The scope of the project includes associated systems to include maintenance management, preventive/corrective maintenance, and operational support, as well as environmental leak detection, airfield refueling electrical supervision, and other control and sensor systems.

ETS will compete for task orders under the multi-year contract, issued by the Space and Naval Warfare ("SPAWAR") Systems Center Atlantic Charleston, S.C., which has a cumulative value of approximately $107 million, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed by ETS' Tulsa office throughout the contiguous U.S., the Pacific area (including Alaska and Hawaii), and Europe and is expected to be completed by July 2015.

SPAWAR is one of three U.S. Department of Navy major acquisition commands and is the Navy's designated technical authority and acquisition command for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR), business information technology, and space systems. The SPAWAR command specifically procures high-end Navy information technology products and services, to the Navy fleet and other armed forces.

Michael M. Patton, President of ENGlobal's Government Services group, said, "This contract award further solidifies our long-term relationship with SPAWAR and represents the quality of our work and the professionalism of our technical services staff.  We are pleased the U.S. Navy continues to have confidence in ENGlobal's technical capabilities to perform engineering support on AFHE projects worldwide."
