HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc (KBR) has been awarded a contract by OZ Minerals for project management services for the development of its Carrapateena copper-gold project located in South Australia.

Under the contract, KBR will provide professional services for the execution phase of the project as part of an integrated project team. KBR had previously been supporting OZ Minerals to finalize its early contractor involvement strategy and associated feasibility study activities.

"We are excited to be working with OZ Minerals on the Carrapateena mine development to progress Australia's largest undeveloped copper project. With an operating life of at least 20 years, Carrapateena represents a major growth opportunity for South Australia with around 1,000 jobs created from construction through to production and longer-term business and employment opportunities for communities in the region," said Greg Conlon, president Asia Pacific, KBR.

"KBR brings decades of global project management experience to Carrapateena and we look forward to continuing our involvement in this landmark project," added Conlon.
