HOUSTON -- Maersk Olie Gas has awarded KBR a $16.5 million contract for detailed engineering for the SMOE Maersk Olie Gas (MOG) Halfdan Phase IV project.
KBR will be responsible for designing a new platform as part of the continued development of the Halfdan field located in approximately 140 ft (43 m) of water, 120 mi (193 km) west of Esbjerg, Denmark. The platform will be constructed at SMOE's Singapore fabrication yard and transported to the North Sea upon completion.
"KBR is delighted to continue working with SMOE to develop a proven, mutually beneficial relationship in offshore production facility design and engineering," says John Rose, KBR's president of upstream.
"This contract reinforces our continued presence as a safe, world class offshore contractor in the Asia-Pacific region. This region is on the threshold of undertaking several offshore projects and this award helps position KBR to gain a major share of the business with an established presence along with fabricator relationships in the region."
