KBR Wins Amenas Gas Project in Algeria

JGC/KBR, a 50/50 joint venture between JGC Corporation of Yokohama, Japan, and KBR (Kellogg Brown & Root) has been awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement and construction of the In Amenas Project facilities, infrastructure and pipeline systems in southern Algeria for BP/Sonatrach.

The In Amenas development will span four production fields covering an area of more than 2,750 square kilometers. The first phase will include the development of the Tiguentourine gas field which lies some 40 kilometers southwest of In Amenas. The engineering, procurement and construction contract will involve gas processing facilities, product pipelines and other infrastructure such as roads, accommodations and offices. Pipeline-grade gas, liquefied petroleum gases and condensate products will be pipelined some 110 kilometers for delivery to Sonatrach's pipeline grid at Ohanet.

Engineering will be executed from London by an integrated team which draws on the strengths of JGC and KBR. Total project duration, up to performance testing, is approximately three years.
