KBR has been awarded a FEED contract to perform work for the topsides and hull associated with a new-build, double-sided, single-bottom hull FPSO vessel, the company announced.
The FPSO will be located offshore Angola, and FEED is scheduled to start immediately with a duration of 12 months.
KBR’s scope covers the permanently moored FPSO using a spread mooring system. The vessel will be capable of storing a minimum of 1 MMbbls and housing 130 people on board. The topsides will utilize a single train designed to process 80,000 b/d and 90 MMcf/d at an export pressure of 3,500 psi. The water injection facilities will be designed to inject up to 130,000 barrels of water per day.
Services for the project will be based out of KBR’s offices in Houston, Gothenburg, and Luanda. KBR’s Luanda office will play a major role in supplying local employee content for the project.
“This project builds upon KBR’s long-standing commitment to the African region and further solidifies our position as a leading FPSO provider,” said Dennis Calton, president of Oil & Gas. “KBR has been present in Africa for nearly 60 years and has executed numerous projects in Angola. I am confident that KBR’s successful completion of this project will position us for additional services during the EPC phase.”
