KBR on Friday was awarded a general works contract for the construction of a 200 million standard cubic feet/day (SCFD) sweet natural gas processing plant near Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada.
KBRs Canadian subsidiary, KBR Wabi, will execute all mechanical, structural, architectural, concrete (structural and other), electrical and instrument works for the project, which aims to monetize recent shale gas discoveries.

KBR is fully committed to supporting the clients objectives for the project and drawing upon our skilled resources in the region, and we are prepared to construct a safe and fully operational natural gas processing plant, said Karl Roberts, senior vice president of KBR Canada.
This award also builds upon our portfolio of solid construction execution, positioning KBR Canada to capitalize on the rapidly increasing shale gas market in British Columbia.
