KBR, WorleyParsons JV Awarded Pluto Platform Contract

KBR's Eos joint venture with WorleyParsons has been awarded a contract option worth approximately U.S. $24 million for the detailed engineering, procurement management and construction management assistance services for Woodside's Pluto LNG Project offshore production platform northwest of Karratha, Western Australia.

The Pluto offshore production platform is a riser and gas export platform with the capability to transfer 1,600 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscfd). Eos was initially awarded the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for the Pluto Offshore platform in September 2006. The contract provided an option for execution services to include detailed design, procurement management services and construction management assistance.

"We are delighted to continue to play a key role for Woodside in this world class development. This demonstrates our capability in fixed offshore structures and reinforces KBR's continued presence as a world class offshore contractor," said Lindsay Woodhead, KBR's vice president of Offshore Operations.

The initial phase of the Pluto LNG Project includes five subsea big bore wells on the Pluto field with flowlines to the offshore production platform which is located in more than 275 feet of water. A 36-inch subsea pipeline will connect the offshore platform to an onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) production plant with an estimated production of 4.3 million tons per annum of LNG.
