A Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for a new Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel offshore Angola has been granted to global engineering company KBR
The planned FPSO unit will have the capacity to store at least 1 mmbbl of oil and house 130 people, as well as being capable of processing 80,000 bpd of oil and injecting a maximum of 130,000 bpd of water.
The FEED contract is valid for 12 months, and the Houston-based firm intends to begin immediately, utilising its Angolan office in the country’s northern coastal city of Luanda as the centre of operations.
Dennis Calton, president for oil and gas at KBR, commented, “KBR has been present in Africa for nearly 60 years and has executed numerous projects in Angola.
“I am confident that KBR's successful completion of this project will position us for additional services during the EPC phase.”
