KBR, Inc. has announced that it has been selected by Freeport LNG Development, LP as the preferred bidder for the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPC) contract for Train 4 at Freeport LNG’s export facility near Freeport, Texas.
“We are excited to be selected for this significant project, and to continue to grow our leadership position in gas monetisation,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. “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 will provide engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up of a nominal 5 million tpy LNG train and associated gas pre-treatment plant for the export of US gas to international markets.
This selection was made following completion of a nine month front-end engineering and design (FEED) verification, execution planning and EPC proposal process. The fourth train will be similar to the first three trains at the facility. KBR also has experience successfully delivering projects in the US Gulf Coast region – including a recent EPC ammonia facility in the Freeport area.
It is expected that the EPC contract will be concluded within 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 the second half of 2019.
