KBR Inc. (NYSE: KBR) said it was awarded a pre-FEED and project support services contracts by BP for the development of the Tortue (Ahmeyim) field offshore Mauritania and Senegal on Aug. 17.

Under KBR's global services agreement with BP, KBR has won these new contracts to provide pre-FEED and project support covering design of the subsea, pre-treatment FPSO facility, inshore hub/terminal and interfaces for floating LNG for the Tortue project. This new work will build on the earlier concept phase work for the development of the field, already completed by KBR's subsidiary Granherne, for BP's partner Kosmos (NYSE: KOS).

"KBR is pleased to offer our world-class engineering design expertise to continue to support this significant project from its early stages and to help BP and its partners develop an LNG hub for Mauritania and Senegal," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. "This award confirms KBR's strategic commitment to and builds upon our ongoing relationship with BP for engineering services around the globe."

KBR's pre-FEED work is expected to be performed over the next six months, with KBR supporting BP in the optimize stage of the Tortue Field development. The work will be executed from KBR's London office which has played a key role in multiple recent BP projects including the Glen Lyon FPSO and Shah Deniz Phase II projects.

Revenue from this contract is undisclosed and will be booked into backlog for KBR's engineering and construction business segment in third-quarter 2017.
