KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded a contract with BP-Husky to provide engineering, procurement and other project related services for BP-Husky Refining LLC’s $400 Million Reformer 3 equipment upgrade of its Toledo Refinery located in Oregon, Ohio.
KBR will provide design and support services needed for the project, replacing two existing naphtha reformers and a hydrogen plant with a single, state-of-the art reformer. The new unit is expected to increase the refinery’s gasoline yields, increase co-product hydrogen production and improve overall plant reliability. Additionally, the new equipment will assist the refinery in meeting future environmental regulations, with an anticipated air emissions reduction of more than five percent. The award of this work follows KBR’s completion of front end engineering for the project for BP-Husky. Work will be executed out of KBR’s Houston and Monterrey, Mexico offices.
“As a long-time client of KBR, we are proud that BP has once again selected KBR as their contractor of choice for the Toledo project,” said John Quinn, President, KBR Downstream. “This project is an important one for the current refining market, and KBR’s project team will work with our valued client to achieve the successful execution of this facility upgrade.”
KBR is a global engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure, power and industrial markets.
