KBR's subsidiary, Granherne, along with joint venture partner WorleyParsons Select, has been awarded the topsides and substructures concept and definition study for the Browse LNG Development's "Browse to Burrup" option.

Work is already underway and is expected to be completed by mid 2008.

"This award is a testament to the technical expertise of our staff and also demonstrates our global reach through our centers of excellence in Perth, London and Houston," said Clive Vaughan, managing director, Granherne. "This study marks our continued commitment to delivering high-quality service to Woodside. We look forward to continuing that commitment through this project, working with our joint venture partners."
