KBR awarded FEED pact for Nigerian LNG expansion

U.S. engineering company KBR said Wednesday it has been awarded a contract to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) for the expansion of Nigeria LNG, Kallanish Energy reports.

No contract value was revealed.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR and its partners will provide the basic design package and EPC bid for the expansion of Nigeria LNG (NLNG). The project for the construction of Train 7 is currently under consideration by joint venture partners Shell, Nigeria’s NNPC, Total and Eni.

The liquefaction plant at Bonny Island has six processing units with total capacity of 22 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and up to 5 MTPA of natural gas liquids (NGL).

KBR’s contract is another indicator the expansion project should be sanctioned soon, echoing Shell CEO Ben van Beurden’s forecast last week.

“Hopefully, late this year or next year, we will sanction the expansion,” he said on the company’s earnings conference call.
