Trusted around the world, we have constructed over 1,000 low temperature and cryogenic storage tanks for the storage of a wide variety of applications and products, including: butane, propane, propylene, ammonia, ethane, ethylene, natural gas, oxygen, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen and other refrigerated gas liquids.

Our proven low temperature & cryogenic storage solutions include:

  • Single or double wall cylindrical flat bottom tanks and vessels with storage capacities from less than 1,000 cubic meters to over 200,000 cubic meters
  • Single or double wall spheres with storage capacities of 500 cubic meters to over 40,000 cubic meters   
  • Single containment, double containment and full containment storage tanks as defined by API 625 or EN 14620 where single wall tanks, and the inner tank of double wall tanks, are made of low temperature or cryogenic steel and outer tanks of double wall tanks are carbon steel, low temperature or cryogenic steel or prestressed concrete

CB&I Low Temperature & Cryogenic Storage

Leading in Innovation

CB&I has developed innovations that set new industry standards for low temperature and cryogenic storage. The design of double wall storage structures, testing and utilization of load bearing insulation systems, and air raising of field-erected tank roofs were major industrial and technical advancements led by CB&I.

Single-Source Excellence

Customers benefit from single-source design and construction capabilities for storage projects with services that extend from concept definition to fabrication, inspection and testing to commissioning and start-up. Storage tanks, vessels and spheres can be built as a standalone product or as part of a complete turnkey facility. No matter the project location, our design engineers work with each customer to coordinate an early and comprehensive geotechnical investigation, reducing the potential for costly design adjustments.

Be Sure with CB&I Storage Solutions

Focused on excellence, we build all storage tanks, vessels and spheres in accordance with relevant national and international codes and standards including the American Petroleum Institute (API), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Concrete Institute (ACI), European Standard (EN) and other national codes as dictated by client requirements, application, industry practices, storage design, geographic location and site-specific location.
