KBR Subsidiary Granherne Selected for Two Pre-FEED Studies By BG Trinidad and Tobago

KBR (NYSE:KBR) today announced that its consulting subsidiary Granherne has been selected as the contractor for two pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED) studies by BG Trinidad & Tobago (BG T&T). The contracts are valued at $1.2 million.

Under the first pre-FEED study, Granherne will undertake study work for provision of compression to BG T&T North Coast Marine Area (NCMA) facilities that deliver gas to Atlantic LNG. The concept phase will examine both offshore and onshore solutions and a final solution will be selected during the pre-FEED phase. The second study includes reviews of the facilities at BG T&T's East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) onshore gas plant at Beachfield, including a review of the arriving offshore pipeline and onshore reception facilities. The study includes design for operational upgrades as well as enhancements to the facility that will help BG T&T meet future demand. Work is expected to begin immediately.
