KBR bags feasibility study contract for a refinery in Africa

HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc has been awarded a bankable feasibility study (BFS) contract by ECOWAS Refinery Liberia Limited (ERLL) for development of a 100kbbl/day refinery located in Buchanan, Liberia (Africa).

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a market study, refinery configuration development and environmental, social and health impact assessment (ESHIA) study.

This work is expected to be performed over five months with KBR configuring the optimal refinery configuration and developing the financial model including capital and operational cost estimates supported by China Huanqiu Contracting and Engineering Corporation (HQC), a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).  HQC are advising in tailoring the BFS product for potential future phase Chinese investment.
