04 October 2012, Sweetcrude, DAR ES SALAAM – KBR says it has been awarded a contract by Statoil Tanzania AS to perform pre-front end engineering and design, pre-FEED, studies for a prospective liquefied natural gas, LNG, facility in Tanzania.
The pre-FEED study is designed to help Statoil further assess the viability of developing an LNG facility to export natural gas from this East African region. The project is expected to be completed in 2013.
“We are excited to be selected by Statoil for this important project,” said Mitch Dauzat, president, Gas Monetization. “KBR looks forward to working together with Statoil to define their LNG concept for Tanzania.”
KBR has been working with Statoil for more than 30 years and has an outstanding record for successful project execution, predominantly for Statoil’s Gas Processing plants.
