KBR on Thursday was selected by GDF Suez, operator of the Bonaparte LNG project, to execute floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) production vessel design work for its project offshore of Darwin, Australia.

This award is one of two contracts being let by GDF Suez as part of an initial concept definition design competition for the vessel.

The award also pre-qualifies KBR as a contender for the EPC delivery phase of the project.

The concept definition work is already underway in KBR’s London operations center in Leatherhead, and is expected to last up to 12 months.

KBR says it has developed an extensive global FLNG engineering capability in recent years, and draws on its experienced resource pool with capabilities in FPSO and onshore LNG EPC delivery.

“We look forward to working together in a new relationship which we hope will prove valuablefor both companies as this project moves towards the EPC phase," said Roy Oelking, hydrocarbons group president for KBR.

"This work follows KBR’s recent FLNG front-end projects in London, Houston and Perth," he added. "FLNG represents a new market for the industry, and KBR’s engineering capability is already being utilized in several FLNG projects around the world."
