KBR gears up for second phase of Woodfibre LNG Project

HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc continues with the second phase of the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for Woodfibre LNG Project.

This contract was awarded to KBR in March this year, to perform multi-phased FEED services for the Woodfibre LNG Export Facility, a project located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

KBR successfully finished the first phase, focused on cost optimisation for the project.

Now, KBR will provide complete FEED services for the 2.1 mtpa liquefaction export facility from KBR's operating centres in Houston (US) and Edmonton (CA), culminating in a lump-sum turnkey (LSTK) price for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

"KBR has been a valued contributor to the Woodfibre LNG Project as work continues to ensure the right elements are in place for what could be British Columbia's first LNG export facility," said Byng Giraud, country manager and VP of corporate affairs for Woodfibre LNG Limited, the privately held Canadian company behind the Woodfibre LNG Project.

"This award reinforces KBR's position in British Columbia as well as our strategic commitment to developing fit-for-purpose LNG facilities for our customers," added Farhan Mujib, president of KBR's engineering & construction (E&C) Americas business.
