KBR said Aug. 22 that it was awarded a contract by Anadarko Mozambique Area 1, Ltd., to perform a pre-front-end-engineering and design (pre-FEED) study for a prospective liquefied natural gas plant in Mozambique, East Africa.
The award of the contract follows the recent natural gas discoveries by Anadarko and its partners in the Rovuma Basin offshore Mozambique. The pre-FEED study is designed to help Anadarko further assess the viability of developing an LNG facility to export natural gas from the region. Partners in the joint venture are Anadarko, ENH, Mitsui, BPRL, Videocon, and Cove.
“KBR is proud to be selected by Anadarko and with a long, proven reputation as a key leader in the development and construction of many of the world’s LNG facilities, we will deliver a reliable study in the early stages of this important LNG development,” said Mitch Dauzat, president, Gas Monetization. “KBR consistently delivers complex LNG projects on time and within budget with a demonstrated ability to deliver in challenging, remote locations. We look forward to applying our experience and collaborating closely with Anadarko and partners to meet their goals for this phase of the Mozambique discovery.”
