KBR was awarded a general works contract for phase two construction at a raw gas processing and compression facility near Dawson Creek, British Columbia, the company said on Wednesday.
KBRs Canadian subsidiary, KBR Wabi, will execute construction and related site support for the expansion of the facility, increasing the existing capacity to 100 million standard cubic feet/day (MMSCFD).
The award follows KBRs recent work for delivering pipe-rack fabrication and module assembly for phase one of the Dawson Creek plant.
This contract represents an opportunity for KBR to further expand its business in the rapidly increasing shale gas market in British Columbia, said Karl Roberts, senior vice president for KBR Canada.
I am confident that KBR Wabi's experience, coupled with our comprehensive execution plan, will ensure successful project delivery for phase two and position KBR to continue building a long-standing, collaborative relationship with our client."
