KBR, Inc.: KBR Awarded FEED Contract for the Upgrade of the Jebel Ali Refinery
                      in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai

HOUSTON -- March 27, 2014 -- KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has  been 
awarded a front-end  engineering design (FEED)  contract byEmirates  National 
Oil Company Processing Company  LLC (EPCL) for the  upgrade of its  condensate 
refinery at Jebel Ali.




Expected revenue from the contract was included in the first quarter 2014
backlog of unfilled orders for the Hydrocarbons segment. The contract value
was not disclosed.

Currently, the facility owned by Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has  two 
trains of condensate distillation units. The upgrade will add new  processing 
units (jet and diesel hydrotreaters and  isomerization unit) and will lead  to 
production of several Euro V grade products such as high octane gasoline,  low 
sulfur jet fuel and ultra-low sulfur diesel.

KBR's work on this facility is  consistent with the growing trend of  refinery 
upgrades across the Middle East in an effort to meet the rising domestic  fuel 
demands and more  stringent product  specifications, according  to the  Middle 
East business intelligence site, MEED.com.

"Supporting  EPCL's  commitment  to   the  downstream  market  is   critically 
important," said Roy Oelking, KBR  Hydrocarbons Business Group President,  who 
noted that the contract  will be executed by  KBR's London Operating  Center. 
"As a longtime partner  with EPCL, we appreciate  both the importance and  the 
impact this  project  will have  in  enabling  EPCL to  achieve  its  business 
objectives."
