KBR bags Magnolia LNG’s EPC contract in US

HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc said it was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Magnolia LNG for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at the Port of Lake Charles, Louisiana, US. KBR has partnered with SK Engineering & Construction (South Korea) for the execution of the project in which KBR will lead the KSJV joint venture.

The construction mobilization on the project is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2016 while work on detailed design and early construction planning will proceed immediately with final release expected in 2016.

The contract includes detailed engineering, procurement and construction of four LNG production trains each with design capacity of 2 million tonne per annum (mtpa), two 160,000 m3 full containment LNG storage tanks, LNG marine and ship loading facilities, and supporting infrastructure.

The project will rely on optimized single mixed refrigerant (OSMR), an innovative technology developed by MLNG’s parent company, LNG Ltd, which involves ammonia pre-cooling for the core liquefaction process.

“We are delighted to work with Magnolia LNG on this ground-breaking project for more innovative, cost effective, efficient and greener LNG,” said Stuart Bradie, president and CEO, KBR.
