KBR, Inc. said it has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract by Oman LNG for the debottlenecking of their facility at Sur in Oman.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide FEED services for the debottlenecking project to increase production at its world-class plant in Sur. This FEED stipulates KBR performing full FEED services including licenser and vendor management and associated services.
"This project builds on KBR's extensive track record of developing and implementing LNG projects and providing solutions to complex developments around the world," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR president for energy solutions services.
KBR will act as an extension to Oman LNG's project team and help manage the overall execution of the project including the management of the supply and ensure all areas of compliance and safety are adhered to. The contract underpins Oman LNG's robust commitment towards knowledge sharing and boosting staff competency in dealing with such complex projects, while enhancing Oman LNG's enriched In-Country Value (ICV) efforts.
"We are excited to be a part of this important project and to continue to grow and maintain our presence in Oman," added Ibrahim. "This indicates KBR's strategic commitment to deliver our differentiated services and develop our presence and long term commitment to Oman, support its in-country value initiatives and to develop a highly skilled in-country engineering capability."
A pioneer in the LNG industry, KBR has designed and constructed one-third of the world's LNG production.
