KBR to Work on BP’s Tortue Project

KBR has been awarded pre-front end engineering design (FEED) and project support services contracts by BP for the development of the Tortue / Ahmeyim field offshore Mauritania and Senegal.

Under KBR’s global services agreement with BP, KBR has won these new contracts to provide pre-FEED and project support covering design of the subsea, pre-treatment floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, inshore hub/terminal, and interfaces for floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) for the Tortue Project. This new work will build on the earlier concept phase work for the development of the field already completed by KBR’s subsidiary Granherne for BP’s partner, Kosmos.

“KBR is pleased to offer our world-class engineering design expertise to continue to support this significant project from its early stages and to help BP and its partners develop an LNG hub for Mauritania and Senegal,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “This award confirms KBR’s strategic commitment to and builds upon our ongoing relationship with BP for engineering services around the globe.”

KBR’s pre-FEED work is expected to be performed over the next six months, with KBR supporting BP in the Optimize Stage of the Tortue field development. The work will be executed from KBR’s London office which has played a key role in multiple recent BP projects including the Glen Lyon FPSO and Shah Deniz Phase II projects.

Revenue from this contract is undisclosed and will be booked into backlog for KBR’s Engineering & Construction business segment in Q3 of 2017.
