KBR & Partners Win EPC Contract for 6th LNG Train in Nigeria

Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) has awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the NLNGSix project at its existing liquefied natural gas facility to a joint venture team, which includes KBR. The partners of the equal joint venture team, known as TSKJ, include Technip, Snamprogetti, KBR and JGC Corporation. This is the fourth project that TSKJ has contracted with NLNG.

"We are pleased to continue our involvement with NLNG and our partners in the development of this integral facility on Bonny Island. The project demonstrates our commitment to Nigeria's continued growth and increasing strength as a reliable provider of LNG," said Andy Lane, president, and CEO of KBR. "KBR is the leading engineering, procurement and construction company in LNG projects, and we are committed to maintaining that position in the industry."

The addition of the sixth train will boost NLNG's production capacity by four million TPA of LNG, to an overall production capacity for the complex of 22 million TPA of LNG and five million TPA of natural gas liquids. The sixth train is scheduled to start up in the 4Q 2007 and most of the production has been sold for North American destinations.

TSKJ has been executing projects on Bonny Island for NLNG since 1995 and was awarded this contract as an option to the current NLNGPlus project (trains 4 and 5), which is currently in advanced stages of construction and scheduled to begin production next year.

NLNG shareholders are Nigerian National Petroleum Company (49%) and subsidiaries of Royal Dutch/Shell (25.6%), Total (15%) and Eni (10.4%).
