KBR wins engineering services contract for DuPont plants in US, Mexico

KBR has been awarded a five-year master services agreement (MSA) with DuPont Engineering to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for most DuPont facilities in the US and Mexico, company officials said on Tuesday.

Expected revenue from the first year of the undisclosed contract value will be included in the backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's hydrocarbons business in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The balance of the contract value will be added to backlog during the life of the agreement.

This contract extends the long-standing EPCM services support of DuPont facilities in the US Northeast region to now include the entire US region and Mexico.

In combination with the recently awarded industrial services contract, KBR will now provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, construction management, and continuous construction and maintenance services for most DuPont manufacturing sites in the US.

As part of this expanded relationship, KBR will also open a new office in Charleston, West Virginia.

"We have a long and proud history of top quartile project execution with DuPont, and this agreement is an outstanding milestone in further strengthening KBR's 20-plus year partnership with an industry leader in the safe and efficient development and execution of capital projects," said Roy Oelking, president of KBR's hydrocarbons business.

"We are fully committed to continuing this partnership with DuPont in new locations in support of ongoing excellence in safe and profitable project delivery for years to come," he added.
