KBR Joint Venture Awarded FEED Contract for Browse LNG Project

KBR announced that KLH Australia-Browse Joint Venture (KLH Australia), a joint venture between KBR, Leighton Contractors and John Holland, has been awarded a FEED contract by Woodside for the company’s Browse Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Development in Western Australia.

The joint venture will provide lump sum FEED services for the development of three four-million ton per annum (MTPA) LNG trains, associated infrastructure, accommodation and marine facilities. The award of this contract marks the first contract win for KLH Australia. Work on the project is expected to begin immediately.

The LNG processing facilities are to be located at the Western Australian Government’s Browse LNG Precinct, 60 km north of Broome. As an area with limited existing infrastructure and with tides in excess of eight meters, the project poses significant onshore infrastructure and marine engineering challenges.

"The award of this contract underscores the value KBR’s global LNG strength and capabilities brings to projects in remote, challenging environments,” said Mitch Dauzat, President, KBR Gas Monetization. “The added expertise and local knowledge of Leighton Contractors and John Holland allows our joint venture to provide premier services during an important phase of the Browse LNG Development. We are proud to be given this opportunity and look forward to our continued collaboration with Woodside."

Earlier this month, KBR was selected by AGL Energy Limited to provide project management services for the design and construction of the 140-turbine Macarthur Wind Farm, to be located in Victoria. Read more.

In January 2011, KBR’s consulting subsidiary, Granherne, was selected by GDF Suez Bonaparte to execute the Upstream pre-FEED study for the Bonaparte LNG Project, a proposed floating liquefaction plant to be located in the Bonaparte Basin, Northern Territory. Read more.
