CB&I (NYSE: CBI) announced today it has entered into an agreement with
Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) to acquire the company’s E-Gas™ Technology business.

The E-Gas™ solids gasification technology is a commercially proven process to
convert coal or petroleum coke (petcoke) into syngas, which can be used for
power generation or further converted to substitute natural gas, hydrogen and
downstream methanol-related chemicals production.

“We look forward to adding the E-Gas™ Technology to our portfolio, which will
mark our entry into the syngas value chain. It also will bring added synergy
to our delayed coking technology offering for integrated power generation, and
other options to the refining and power industries,” said Daniel McCarthy,
group president of CB&I’s Technology operating group.
