Chevron awards Indonesia EPC work to KBR

Engineering giant to carry out work on facilities at Minas, Duri and Dumai fields

Engineering giant KBR has won a contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services to US supermajor Chevron's operating fields in Sumatra, Indonesia.

The value of the deal was not disclosed, but revenue associated with the project will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's engineering and construction business segment in the second quarter.

KBR said the five-year contract would be executed through a consortium between the company and its Indonesian partner, PT Singgar Mulia Engineering Consultants.

The news follows KBR's announcement last week that it had been awarded a 10-year global engineering and procurement services contract by Chevron.

The scope of work includes project and portfolio management, engineering design and construction management for facilities at the Minas, Duri and Dumai fields.

"The consortium will provide in-country services to manage daily operational activities for Chevron's production facilities; including providing local and global personnel, tools and procedures, best work practices and processes, as well as establishing and maintaining infrastructure and providing health, environment and safety training to the workforce," KBR said.

"Through this project, the consortium will conduct training programs to help the local work community develop essential skills for current and future employees on these projects."
