BG Group has signed an alliance with KBR, enhancing the company’s capacity to deliver oil and gas projects around the world.
The single-partner alliance, which has been signed initially for six years, with options to extend to up to 10 years, will involve KBR’s engineers and specialists providing technical support, services, and project management expertise across BG Group’s global upstream portfolio.
KBR will provide a flexible resource that can be scaled to match the specific requirements of each project. This will enable BG Group to minimise its fixed costs whilst retaining access to high value technical expertise and support.
Sami Iskander, BG Group, COO, commented: “We are pleased to announce our upstream alliance with KBR, which represents a significant evolution in the way we work with contractors. We will be taking a more integrated and collaborative approach in which we can fully capitalise on the high calibre of people and the knowledge that our partner KBR can bring to our business.
“The alliance will provide us with access to dedicated and proven third-party expertise and resources that can be tailored to specific projects. Importantly, it will focus on enhancing BG Group’s productivity and agility as we develop projects that will deliver the next phase of the company’s growth.”
Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO, added: "We are excited about this opportunity to continue our relationship with BG Group while continuing to demonstrate our track record of safety, quality personnel and experience in the upstream market sector”.
