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.
Due to the remote location of the plant in Eastern Indonesia, KBR will deploy its industry leading logistics expertise to provide solutions for efficient management of construction personnel, materials & equipment.
"KBR is a world leader in designing and building LNG facilities and we have a proven record of delivering reliable and tested solutions in a price and schedule driven market," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President EMEA & APAC.

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
