Engineering Contracts for KBR on FPSO Projects

June 26, 2012

KBR selected to execute two FLNG engineering studies for two Höegh LNG projects offshore Israel, Australia

KBR  announced today that it was selected as Höegh’s preferred engineer to execute pre-FEED studies for two of its projects off the coast of Israel and offshore Australia.

KBR will provide the pre-FEED study for the King liquefied natural gas-floating production storage and offloading (LNG-FPSO) facility currently being evaluated for Noble Energy (NBL)'s giant Tamar gas field off the coast of Israel.

KBR has developed FPSOs that are in use worldwide and is recognized as one of the world's leading providers of onshore LNG plants and FPSOs.

Höegh LNG awarded KBR (KBR) a second FLNG pre-FEED study for an unnamed project offshore Australia. The four-month pre-FEED is intended to provide a Total Installed Cost (TIC) estimate for a two mtpa FLNG facility to enable further evaluation of the project.

KBR is a global engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure, power, industrial, and commercial markets.

KBR will perform a cost estimate study, taking Höegh’s existing generic LNG FPSO FEED study and adapting the capex cost for the operator’s field-specific basis of design. Should the project economics prove viable, FEED could start as early as 4Q 2012.

Both projects will be performed in KBR’s London Operating Center, utilizing the company’s substantial and growing FLNG engineering capability spread over the London, Houston and Perth offices.
