BP grants KBR subsidiary front-end engineering design contract

Oil major BP PLC said Oct. 12 it granted the U.K. operating subsidiary of KBR Inc. a front-end engineering design, or FEED, contract for phase 1 of its Tortue field hub/terminal development located on the maritime border between Senegal and Mauritania for an undisclosed amount.

In particular, the subsidiary will manage the quarters and utilities, which includes Telecoms Systems FEED, and provide supplemental services of the hub/terminal for the Tortue project in Senegal and Mauritania. FEED work will be done up to the end of 2018 in order to support the final investment decision.

In addition, the contract has a mechanism that will allow it to transition to an engineering, procurement and construction management contract at a later time.
