kbr inc (KBR) Key Developments

KBR, Inc. Wins Front End Engineering Design Contract

KBR, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a near-shore floating LNG Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract by Lloyds Energy Ltd. Under this contract, the company will provide integrated topsides and hull engineering design services for a nominal 2.5 million TPA floating natural gas liquefaction plant (FLNG). Start-up of the project facilities is expected to take place in 2019. All LNG processing facilities, together with the associated utilities and power generation, will be located on the FLNG barges, which will be moored at the end of a new single jetty, about 3.5km in length. LNG storage will be in the barge hulls and loading will be via a separate LNG carrier berth at the end of the jetty.

KBR Wins Licensing & Design Services Contract for Ammonia Plants

KBR Inc. announced that it has been awarded a contract by OJSC Togliattiazot (ToAZ) to provide licensing, basic engineering design, front-end engineering and design services to revamp ToAZ's existing seven ammonia plants in Togliatti, Samara region, Russia. Under the terms of the contract, KBR will supply ToAZ with its proprietary ammonia technology to significantly increase overall ammonia production capacity while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency and overall reliability of the plants. KBR will use its standard-setting technology to cut production costs for ToAZ. KBR has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering and/or construction of more than 230 ammonia plants worldwide. The contract value was not disclosed. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in KBR's second quarter 2015 backlog of unfilled orders for its Engineering & Construction and Technology & Consulting business lines.

KBR Wins its Appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

KBR announced that it won its appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The Court of Appeals ruled in KBR's favor, and vacated and reversed an $81 million judgment against the company. The now-vacated judgment had been entered by a federal magistrate judge in Oregon in favor of a group of Oregon national guardsmen who alleged they were exposed to Iraqi-supplied sodium dichromate in 2003 during the Iraq war when deployed by the U.S. Army to provide force protection at a water treatment plant in Iraq. The Court of Appeals held that KBR was not subject to personal jurisdiction in Oregon, thus agreeing with what KBR had contended years earlier at the beginning of the lawsuit. As a result, the Court of Appeals reversed the $81 million judgment in its entirety. Approximately 130 other plaintiffs brought a similar lawsuit in federal court in Houston, Texas. The federal judge in the Texas case granted summary judgment on the merits in favor of KBR with respect to all of plaintiffs' claims except for their claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
