"This award from NextDecade is a reflection of the substantial liquefied natural gas experience CB&I brings to the project," said Philip K. Asherman, CB&I's President and Chief Executive Officer. "CB&I's selection for this project demonstrates NextDecade's confidence in our track record for outstanding project execution and superior safety performance, and we look forward to working with them to successfully complete this project."
