KBR, AYTB to provide refinery maintenance services in Saudi Arabia

HOUSTON, US: KBR and AYTB have signed a seven-year contract to provide refinery maintenance services for the Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company (SATORP) at a new 400,000 barrel per day refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The refinery represents both a major investment by SATORP, and, as a single construction effort, a unique technical challenge due to its world-class scale and complexity. The contract value is in the approximate range between $140 million and $170 million, depending on services. Production is expected to commence in 2013.

KBR, through a joint venture with Jubail-based AYTB, will deliver full-service maintenance services at the SATORP refinery. Deliverables under the contract include overall site management and field supervision of a craft workforce covering all mechanical, electrical and instrumentation disciplines. KBR and AYTB will also provide detailed planning and scheduling services, execution of preventive and predictive maintenance programme, management of subcontractor activities and procurement of tools and equipment. Additional services include the development, in partnership with SATORP, of reliability and cost optimization programme.

“This is a milestone project for KBR as it represents a major step forward for our Services Business Group, taking on its first long-term maintenance contract in Saudi Arabia and significantly expanding its international footprint. For decades, KBR has provided a full suite of maintenance services to clients in the US domestic market and in select overseas markets. We are proud to be establishing a long-term presence in and commitment to the Middle East,” said Ivor Harrington, Group President, KBR Services.
