BP awards turnaround management deal to KBR at Alabama aromatics site

KBR has been selected to provide BP's Decatur plant in Alabama with specialty turnaround management and turnaround mechanical execution services, the companies confirmed on Wednesday.

The work will be performed on one of the six on-site production units at the aromatics site in Decatur. The plant utilizes paraxylene to manufacture plastic bottles, polyester material and new generation polyesters and resins.

The contract award is valued at $3.5 million and underscores KBR’s ability to mobilize skilled resources and execute highly complex, time-sensitive projects, according to project officials.

“KBR has extensive experience serving the petrochemical industry by providing specialized turnaround management, project controls, and direct hire execution services,” said Ivor Harrington, group president for KBR Services.

“KBR has provided supplemental maintenance, annual shutdowns and small capital projects to the site since 1998. We are pleased to have been selected by this valued client and look forward to building on our long-standing relationship as we work toward the successful completion of this project.”
