America’s KBR Engineering Wins NNPC’s FEED Consultancy Contract
American engineering company, KBR has won the project management consultancy services contract for front-end engineering design (FEED) definition at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) headquarters, Abuja. KBR, Inc. (formerly Kellogg Brown & Root) construction company, was formerly a subsidiary of Halliburton.
According to the terms of the contract, KBR, as co-consultant with the National Engineering and Technical Company Ltd (NETCO) will provide technical consultancy services for four greenfield refineries in the ANOH and Western Forcados area.
The work is expected to be performed over a six-month period with KBR providing strategic advisory consulting on elimination of condensate from oil export streams which will reduce dependency and expense of imported refined products. The work will be conducted from KBR’s Leatherhead office in the U.K. with support from the Middle East and Houston.
The main objective of the project is upgrading gas condensate to valuable refined fuel products. This reduces the country’s dependence on costly imported fuels and is well aligned with KBR’s gas monetization and asset optimization strategies. Together, these strategies provide a valuable, sustainable solution to Nigeria in matters of fuel security, economic development and regional capacity building.
“We are delighted to be part of this strategic project supporting a prestigious partner to deliver the transition to an increasingly sustainable energy solution for Nigeria,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions – Services. “The work will be undertaken by KBR’s consulting team, where our strategic master-planning capability resides to help customers improve their sustainability, energy efficiency and maximize asset performance.”
Ibrahim said KBR is leading the industry to meet the world’s ever-growing energy and chemicals demands. From an expanding portfolio of greener, cleaner solutions to its comprehensive feasibility study solutions, KBR is supporting the world’s transition to a clean energy future.
