Cobra Castor Under Ground Gas Storage Facility - Ingleside, Texas
Kiewit's scope included engineering, procurement, and construction of two platforms and two associated jackets. Completing the project in a little over two years, we exceeded the owner expectations, met the schedule, and performed under budget.
The Cobra Castor Underground Gas Storage Facility Project converted an abandoned reservoir to a new submarine natural gas storage facility to provide stability and back-up to the gas supplies for the Mediterranean Axis of Spain. When the gas system requires it, this facility will be able to return gas from the storage in the same conditions and through the same submarine gas pipeline it was received. Placed on top of the submarine gas storage system there are two offshore interconnected platforms, the wellhead platform (WHP) and the process, utility, and quarters platform (PUQ).
