KBR Wins FEED Contract for West Mediterranean Deepwater Development

KBR has been selected to provide Front End Engineering Design (FEED) support on the West Mediterranean Concession Deepwater Development. The $10 million contract was awarded by the North Alamein Petroleum Company (NALPETCO). The FEED services are for the development of gas and condensate reserves located in two fields in deep water in the Mediterranean Sea, approximately 50 miles northwest of Alexandria, Egypt.

The work, which will be performed out of the KBR Cairo and Leatherhead office in the U.K., is slated to begin in late September, and is expected to last approximately six months. At the end of the FEED phase, NALPETCO has the option to request follow-on support from KBR to provide additional technical and procurement services during the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase.

"We are pleased to be awarded this contract," said John Rose, President of KBR's Upstream business unit. "We have an excellent track record of work performed in Egypt, enhanced by our local presence in Cairo for over 22 years."

The FEED contract will define the offshore and onshore facilities required to develop and exploit the Abu Sir and El King gas and gas/condensate fields located in the Mediterranean Sea near Alexandria. These deep water fields will be developed using subsea technology and a pipeline gathering system which will feed a new onshore gas plant capable of exporting 300 MMSCFD of sales quality gas to the NPT grid, and 4,000 BPD of stabilized condensate.
