Under the terms of the oil and gas contract, KBR, as leader of the Bonny7JV with partners TechnipFMC and JGC, will provide the basic design package and EPC bid for the expansion.

The Train 7 project covers the addition of a complete LNG train and an additional common liquefaction unit (CLU) at the facility. The CLU draws feedstock from the six existing LNG trains delivered by KBR and partners from 1995 to 2007.

Commenting on Nigeria’s oil and gas project, Jay Ibrahim, president of KBR for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific, noted, “This award is indicative of KBR's strategic commitment to support NLNG, building on past success to deliver a high level of Nigerian content and helping to build a better Nigeria.”

Estimated revenue associated with this project will be booked into the backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's hydrocarbons services business segment in the Q3 2018.

In January 2018, KBR received a contract from Indorama Eleme Fertilizer & Chemicals and Toyo Engineering for the Train 2 ammonia plant at Indorama's Port Harcourt site, a move that was aimed at boosting Nigeria’s petrochemicals sector. KBR was set to provide technology licensing, basic engineering design, proprietary equipment and catalyst for the plant’s development.
