KBR’s UK subsidiary has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract by BP for Phase 1 of the Tortue field hub/terminal development located on the maritime border between Senegal and Mauritania.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide management of the Quarters and Utilities (QU) including Telecoms Systems FEED and provision of supplemental services (system engineering, interface oversight, technology planning, support and verification) of the hub/terminal for the Tortue project in Senegal and Mauritania. The FEED work is to be performed up to the end of 2018 to support the FID.
The agreement contains a mechanism to allow transition of the contract to an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) contract at a later date.
"We are proud to continue to be part of this significant project providing this technical assurance and facilities integration role to BP," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific. "This win is indicative of KBR's strategic commitment to our partner BP, building on concept work done by our subsidiary Granherne, and then the Pre-FEED that was executed by KBR and now to this FEED award."
