KBR lands FEED for Gulf LNG Liquefaction exports

KBR was awarded a contract by Gulf LNG Liquefaction Co. to provide Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) FEED engineering and FERC report pre-filing services, the companies said on Friday.

The contract is aimed at supporting the addition of 10 million tpy of liquefaction and export capabilities to GLE’s existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal. That terminal is officially named the Gulf LNG Terminal, located in Jackson County, Mississippi.

Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the second quarter 2014 backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's gas monetization segment. The contract value was not disclosed.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will perform FERC FEED engineering for two LNG trains (each 5 million tpy) and associated facilities based on KBR’s proven reference design using APCI C3MR technology.

Additionally, KBR will provide the technical documentation required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) during the pre-filing process.

These facilities will allow the terminal to liquefy domestic natural gas delivered by pipeline, store the LNG in the terminal’s existing LNG storage tanks, and load it into LNG vessels via the terminal’s existing marine jetty.

The terminal will retain its current capability to receive, store, re-gasify, and deliver natural gas into the interstate pipeline system as originally constructed, thereby making the Gulf LNG Terminal bi-directional.

“We are excited to expand our work with Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company and to contribute to this important development in Mississippi,” said Ivor Harrington, president of KBR's gas monetization group. 

“This contract award demonstrates the continued confidence in KBR’s LNG project experience and leverages our US construction capability and provides opportunity for a full-service EPC contract at a later date."
