KBR Subsidiary Awarded Contracts by StatoilHydro to Upgrade Karsto Gas Plant

KBR KBR today announced its M.W. Kellogg Ltd. (MWKL) subsidiary has been awarded two contracts by StatoilHydro at the Kårstø Gas Plant, near Stavanger, Norway. MWKL will provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction Assistance (EPCa) for the Double Inlet Crossover Project (DIXO) and NGL Metering Project.

The goal of the DIXO project is to provide increased regularity and blending possibilities for incoming gas supplies to the facility which will be achieved by providing two cross over lines.

The NGL Metering Upgrade project is to take place in parallel to the KEP 2010 EPCa project already being undertaken by MWKL, so the effective interface co-ordination and planning for all phases of the project is critical to the success of the project.

"MWKL has been involved with the Kårstø Gas Terminal for more than 25 years and has executed over 20 projects including conceptual studies, pre-engineering, and world-scale engineering, procurement and construction assistance projects during this period," said Stewart Watson, Managing Director, MWKL. "We are delighted to be involved in these projects which will further enhance the operability of the Kårstø facility."

MWKL, a majority owned subsidiary of KBR Inc. is a full service contractor serving the energy and petrochemicals industries. MWKL, headquartered in London, executes world-scale international projects from conceptual feasibility studies through fixed price turnkey mega-projects.
