KBR Awarded FEED Contract for Ammonium Nitrate Plant at Petrochemical Complex by Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation

KBR KBR been awarded a contract by Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation (EHC) to complete a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) project for an ammonium nitrate plant being developed by Carbon Holdings at its proposed Petrochemical Complex. The complex will be located 25 km (15.5 miles) from Suez, Egypt, near the Red Sea.

KBR will perform engineering services for both the process units, and the utilities and offsites for the plant. Currently, a single-train process plant is planned for installation with a nominal capacity of 1,060 metric tons per day of ammonium nitrate. The process designs of the nitric acid and ammonium nitrate units will apply the proven technologies of Espindesa, a subsidiary of Tecnicas Reunidas of Spain.

The award of the FEED project follows KBR's completion of various prefeasibility and pre-feed studies for the Petrochemical Complex's proposed plants, including ammonium nitrate and other chemical and petrochemical facilities. KBR has also completed a master plot plan study and a study of off-plot options for the complex.
