Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO, said: “We are excited to be selected for this significant project, and to continue to grow our leadership position in gas monetisation.
“This project is firmly in line with our stated corporate strategy to sign up the right work with the right clients and we appreciate FLNG’s confidence in KBR’s ability to deliver.”
Under the terms of the expected EPC contract, KBR claims that it will provide engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of a nominal 5 million tpy LNG train and associated gas pretreatment plant for the export of US gas to global markets.
According to the statement, this selection was made following the completion of a nine-month front-end engineering and design (FEED) verification, execution planning and EPC proposal process. KBR claims that the fourth train will be similar to the first three trains at the facility. In addition to this, KBR also has extensive experience in delivering projects in the US Gulf Coast region – including a recent EPC ammonia facility in the Freeport area.
KBR claims that it is expected that the fixed price EPC contract will be concluded this quarter, and will be followed by a limited notice to proceed period, which will include early engineering and commitment of critical long lead equipment orders. It is expected that full notice to proceed will occur in 2H19.
