KBR wins EPC work at Koch urea expansion in US

09.03.2014  | 

The urea project is part of a $1.3 billion expansion project by Koch Nitrogen to increase the plant’s urea and ammonia production capacity by more than 1 MMtpy.


KBR has been awarded a reimbursable contract by Koch Nitrogen to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for a new grassroots urea plant, part of a $1.3 billion expansion project by Koch Nitrogen at its Enid, Oklahoma facility. 

In addition, KBR will provide construction management services for expansion of the existing ammonia plants and site utilities and infrastructure to support the project.

The expansion will increase the plant’s urea and ammonia production capacity by more than one million tons per year. The new urea plant will have an annual urea production capacity of 900,000 tons.

This contract award is a testament to KBR’s capabilities and solidifies the company’s world leadership in ammonia technology, according to KBR chief executive Stuart Bradie. Considered a leader in ammonia technology, KBR has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering and/or construction of more than 230 ammonia plants worldwide.

“KBR has a long history of delivering customer value,” Bradie said. “We’re excited about this major contract award which continues our long relationship with Koch Nitrogen and, at completion, will bring Koch Nitrogen and its customers the benefits of our EPC and fertilizer technology expertise.”

The contract value was not disclosed. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in KBR’s third quarter 2014 backlog of unfilled orders for its hydrocarbons segment.
