KBR, Inc. has announced that its UK operating 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.

According to the statement, the agreement contains a mechanism to allow transition of the contract to an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract at a later date.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR claims that it 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 scheduled to be carried out up until the end of this year to support the final investment decision (FID). Local content was carefully considered as part of the regular contract evaluation process, and will continue to be closely reviewed to identify potential opportunities during KBR FEED engineering work.

Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific, said: “We are proud to continue to be part of this significant project providing this technical assurance and facilities integration role to BP.

“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.”

Estimated revenue associated with this project will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR’s Hydrocarbons Services Business segment in 4Q18.
