KBR subsidiary KBR Industrial Canada has received a letter of intent (LOI) to design the topside facilities for the proposed Bay Du Nord floating production, storage, and offloading facility (FPSO) offshore of Canada.
The LoI for the front-end engineering design (FEED) has been issued by Equinor Canada. The FEED scope is expected to further mature the FPSO project’s engineering and execution planning.
The latest agreement covers an option to continue providing procurement management and detailed design services until the FPSO’s final completion.
During the FEED engineering, KBR will use onboard combined cycle power system and the latest technology to reduce onboard crew numbers and maximise digital solutions to help Equinor in developing low-carbon FPSO.
In a statement, KBR said: “All these elements will produce energy safely and securely while minimising carbon emissions.”
The work scope is planned to be executed by KBR jointly with Canadian subcontractor Hatch. KBR will also provide an integrated team across Canada and London to Equinor as part of the contract.
