KBR (Houston, Tex.; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract by Verkhnechonskneftegas (VCNG) to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the VC FFD Project located in the Eastern Siberia region of Russia. KBR will provide FEED services for a single new build, 140,000 barrels of oil per day facility, which will be tied back via a new 85-kilometer pipeline, to the existing East Siberian Pacific Ocean (ESPO) pipeline. The VC oil & gas field is planned to produce a plateau production of 140,000 bbl/d of oil from 430 production wells, and there will be 215 water injection wells.

The reservoir is about 1,700 m depth and initial reservoir pressure is about 2,250 psia, with a reservoir temperature from 12C to 20C. The project award marks the first contract between VCNG and KBR and builds upon the existing relationship between TNK-BP and Granherne, a KBR subsidiary.
