KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Woodside to execute a basis of design study for the company’s Browse Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Development. The study will focus on Woodside’s onshore LNG facilities within the Western Australian Government’s proposed Browse LNG Precinct in the north of Western Australia.
KBR will execute the study for a 12 million tons per annum (MTPA) liquefaction facility, as well as the associated infrastructure and marine facilities. The anticipated duration of the study is nine months. The award of the basis of design study follows the recent award to KBR of a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for Woodside’s Pluto LNG trains 2 and 3.
”We are pleased to be working with Woodside on this important project. I am confident KBR’s global LNG expertise, coupled with our local Australian capabilities, will be invaluable to the execution of Browse,” said Mitch Dauzat, President, KBR Gas Monetization. “In our continuing relationship with Woodside, KBR will apply its experience in mega projects, remote projects and modularized LNG facilities to provide a quality design study for our valued client.”
