HOUSTON, T.X. – KBR, Inc. announced today that it will proceed with Front-End Engineering Design for the Woodfibre LNG Project.

The announcement continues the second phase of the contract announced in March of this year for KBR to perform multi-phased FEED services for the Woodfibre LNG Export Facility near Squamish.

KBR has successfully completed the first phase, focused on cost optimization for the project. KBR will now provide comprehensive FEED services for the 2.1 MTPA liquefaction export facility from KBR’s operating centers in Houston and Edmonton, culminating in a lump-sum turn-key price for an engineering, procurement and construction contract.

“The award of the FEED contract to KBR, a world leader in LNG FEED and EPC work, reaffirms the momentum behind the Woodfibre LNG project,” said Byng Giraud, Country Manager and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Woodfibre LNG Limited, the privately held Canadian company behind the Woodfibre LNG Project. “KBR has been a valued contributor to the Woodfibre LNG Project as work continues to ensure the right elements are in place for what could be British Columbia’s first LNG export facility,” said Giraud.

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Woodfibre as they progress toward becoming British Columbia’s first LNG exporter,” said Farhan Mujib, President of KBR’s Engineering & Construction (E&C) Americas business. “This award reinforces KBR’s position in British Columbia as well as our strategic commitment to developing fit-for-purpose LNG facilities for our customers.”
