KBR announce that it has been awarded a FEED contract to perform work for the topsides and hull associated with a new-build, double-sided, single-bottom hull Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

    •    The crude will be transferred using a mid-water oil offloading line from the FPSO to the SPM buoy.
    •    Produced gas will be dehydrated and transferred via a gas export line to a client-owned facility.
    •    The design service life of the FPSO facility is 20 years.

Services for the project will be based out of KBR’s offices in Houston, Gothenburg and Luanda. KBR’s Luanda office will play a major role in supplying local employee content for the project.
