KBR, Inc. will proceed with front end engineering design (FEED) for the Woodfibre LNG project. This continues the second phase of the contract announced in March of this year for KBR to perform multi-phased FEED services for the Woodfibre LNG export facility, a project located in the District of Squamish near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
KBR has successfully completed the first phase, focused on cost optimisation for the project. Now, KBR will provide comprehensive FEED services for the 2.1 million tpy liquefaction export facility from KBR's operating centres in Houston (USA) and Edmonton (CA), culminating in a lump sum turnkey (LSTK) price for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.
"The award of the FEED contract to KBR, a world leader in LNG FEED and EPC work, reaffirms the momentum behind the Woodfibre LNG project," said Byng Giraud, Country Manager and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Woodfibre LNG Limited, the privately held Canadian company behind the Woodfibre LNG Project. "KBR has been a valued contributor to the Woodfibre LNG Project as work continues to ensure the right elements are in place for what could be British Columbia's first LNG export facility," said Giraud.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with Woodfibre as they progress toward becoming British Columbia's first LNG exporter," said Farhan Mujib, President of KBR's Engineering & Construction (E&C) Americas business. "This award reinforces KBR's position in British Columbia as well as our strategic commitment to developing fit-for-purpose LNG facilities for our customers."
For more than 40 years, KBR has designed or constructed over 30 different liquefaction projects across the globe, gaining industry-leading capability in the design, construction, commissioning, and startup of these facilities.
Revenue associated with this project is undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's E&C business segment in 3Q16.
