HOUSTON – KBR (NYSE:KBR) has won a front-end engineering and design contract from Lloyds Energy Ltd. covering a near-shore FLNG installation.

KBR will provide integrated topsides and hull engineering design services for a nominal 2.5 million tons/year FLNG vessel.

All LNG processing facilities and associated utilities and power generation will be on the FLNG barges, which will be moored at the end of a new single jetty, about 3.5 km (2 mi) in length. LNG storage will be in the barge hulls and loading will be via a separate LNG carrier berth at the end of the jetty.

Work has started and is expected to be completed in 1Q 2016.

“The ultimate objective is to establish a program of multiple near-shore FLNG projects, based on one single and original design,” said Konstantinos Mitropoulos, Lloyds Energy CEO.
