Mary Page Bailey
KBR, Inc., (Houston; www.kbr.com), a global engineering, construction and services company, announced that it has been awarded a contract by Fertial SpA to conduct a study that will improve safety, reliability and energy efficiency of two Algerian ammonia plants. The outcomes of the study will also increase the overall ammonia production capacity by 50% and be introduced in a phase-by-phase approach for the 1970’s-era plants. The undisclosed contract value was booked into backlog in KBR’s fourth quarter of 2013. During the first phase of the revamp project, KBR will define the technical scope and pinpoint the commercial requirements prior to licensing its technology.
