HOUSTON – BP has awarded KBR Inc.’s UK operating subsidiary a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for Phase 1 of the Tortue field hub/terminal development located on the maritime border between Senegal and Mauritania.
The agreement contains a mechanism to allow transition of the contract to an engineering, procurement, and construction management contract later.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide management of the quarters and utilities (QU) including telecoms systems FEED and provision of supplemental services (system engineering, interface oversight, technology planning, support, and verification).
The FEED work is to be performed up to the end of 2018 to support the FID. The company said that local content was carefully considered as part of the regular contract evaluation process and will continue to be closely reviewed to identify potential opportunities during its FEED engineering work.
“We are proud to continue to be part of this significant project providing this technical assurance and facilities integration role to BP,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific. “This win is indicative of KBR’s strategic commitment to our partner BP, building on concept work done by our subsidiary Granherne, and then the pre-FEED that was executed by KBR and now to this FEED award.”
