Nigeria: Consultancy Services KBR Wins Contract by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has awarded KBR with a Project Management Consultancy Services contract for four condensate greenfield refineries in Nigeria. The aim of the new projects is to lower the country's dependence on expensive imported fuels.
Houston/USA – KBR has announced that it has been awarded the Project Management Consultancy Services contract by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for front-end engineering design (Feed) definition at the NNPC headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR, as co-consultant with the National Engineering and Technical Company (Netco) will provide technical consultancy services for four greenfield refineries in the Anoh and Western Forcados area.
This work is expected to be performed over a six-month period with KBR providing strategic advisory consulting on elimination of condensate from oil export streams which will reduce dependency and expense of imported refined products. The work will be conducted from KBR's Leatherhead office in the U.K. with support from the Middle East and Houston.
The main objective of the project is upgrading gas condensate to valuable refined fuel products. This reduces the country's dependence on costly imported fuels and is well aligned with KBR's gas monetisation and asset optimisation strategies. Together, these strategies provide a valuable, sustainable solution to Nigeria in matters of fuel security, economic development and regional capacity building.
"We are delighted to be part of this strategic project supporting a prestigious partner to deliver the transition to an increasingly sustainable energy solution for Nigeria," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions – Services. "The work will be undertaken by KBR's consulting team, where our strategic master-planning capability resides to help customers improve their sustainability, energy efficiency and maximise asset performance."
