HOUSTON – KBR, Inc. announced it has been awarded a pre-FEED contract by INPEX Corporation through its subsidiary INPEX Masela Ltd for the Abadi onshore LNG Project in the Arafura sea in Indonesia.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a cost competitive, pre-FEED package utilizing its well proven design and execution methodologies. The pre-FEED will be performed entirely from KBR's Jakarta office in Indonesia. KBR will provide services including site master plan development, scope of work for the FEED phase as well as an EPC schedule and cost estimate. This work is expected to be performed within approximately six months, with KBR performing studies to establish configuration of the LNG process plant, supporting utilities, and product storage and export facilities.
