HOUSTON, US: KBR was awarded a contract by Zeon Chemicals (Zeon) to provide construction management and services for its nitrile rubber plant expansion project in Pasadena, Texas.

KBR will manage the first phase of Zeon’s expansion plan, which will enable the plant to increase production of zetpol hydrogenated nitrile rubber - used in the production of items such as belts, seals, hoses, diaphragms and rolls for the automotive, oil field and roll industries by 25 per cent.

“KBR is committed to providing quality construction services for Zeon expansion at its Texas facility and enable increased production at the plant,” said David Zimmerman, President, Services, KBR.
