KBR, a U.S. engineering firm, has won a contract for detailed design engineering and follow-on services of the topsides facilities for Maersk Oil’s Culzean project in the UK North Sea.
The company has been hired by SMOE PTE LTD in Singapore for the job. Specifically, KBR will deliver the living quarters, central processing facility and well-head decks for the three platforms for the Culzean project.
“We are pleased to support this exciting and significant new UK North Sea project and to continue our long and successful history with SMOE and Maersk Oil as well as in the UK and Asia-Pacific region,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO.
“For more than 50 years, KBR has been a world leader in designing and constructing fixed and floating offshore oil and gas facilities in challenging maritime environments around the globe. Our selection for this project is indicative of KBR’s unique expertise, and competitive high quality and technologically advanced services.”
This is the second Culzean-related award for KBR. The company in May 2014 won a contract to support Maersk Oil in the development of the concept and front-end engineering (FEED) for the Culzean gas field.
As for the new contract, the sixteen month detailed design will start immediately. KBR will also provide follow-on services to SMOE for the whole thirty-two month duration of the project.
