KBR on Wednesday was awarded a contract by Statoil to perform pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) studies for a prospective liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Tanzania, East Africa.
The pre-FEED study is designed to help Statoil further assess the viability of developing an LNG facility to export natural gas from this East African region. The project is expected to be completed during 2013.
We are excited to be selected by Statoil for this important project, said Mitch Dauzat, president of gas monetization for KBR.
KBR looks forward to working together with Statoil to define their LNG concept for Tanzania.
KBR has been working with Statoil for more than 30 years. The company says it has a strong record for successful project execution, predominantly for Statoils gas processing plants.
