HOUSTON -- April 02, 2013

KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that Shell Canada Energy has selected KBR to
perform off-site modularization and pipe fabrication at their Edmonton Module
Facility. This historic project will use Shell Quest Carbon Capture and
Storage (CCS) technologies to reduce CO[2] emissions at Shell’s Upgrader which
upgrades oil originating from Shell’s Athabasca Oil Sands operations. This
technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by capturing more than one
million metric tons of CO[2] per year produced during the upgrading process.

KBR will support Shell’s effort to maximize off-site modularization for this
project by providing pipe spool fabrication and module assembly for pipe,
process, equipment and building modules. The scope also includes the
fabrication of several unique and innovative vertical modules and support for
off-site testing and commissioning services.

“KBR is excited to participate in this critical and important environmental
project for the Alberta Oil Sands,” said Ivor Harrington, Group President,
Services. “The Quest CCS project leadership team has expressed a deep
commitment to engage and collaborate across all levels of both KBR and Shell
in order to achieve world class safety, quality, cost and environmental
performance. This project brings together world leaders in their respective
fields, with a commitment to set new benchmarks for project performance in
Canada.”

KBR is a global engineering, construction and services company supporting the
energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure,
power, industrial, and commercial markets.For more information, visit
