Bilfinger Berger wins major order valued at over €130 million from the American oil and gas industry

Bilfinger Berger has won a major order from the American oil industry valued at approximately €130 million. In one of the most important oil and gas fields in the United States, the Group will design, manufacture and build five pump stations and tank storage systems which are part of a new, nearly 250-kilometer long pipeline. The client is Enterprise Products, a major North American supplier in the transport and storage of oil and natural gas.

The pipeline is part of the development of the Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas field in Texas in which a number of international oil companies are investing. Bilfinger Berger Industrial Services is responsible for coordinating the construction of the crude oil storage and pump stations and will provide additional services in piping engineering and electrical measurement and control technology.

The order allows Bilfinger Berger Industrial Services to expand its position in the United States. Recently, the company has generated annual volumes of €300 million in that market. The American government is supporting investments in the development of oil and gas fields in the country, which means that a further increase in demand can be expected in this sector.
