KBR has secured a contract from PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia to provide engineering, project and construction management services contract for the latter’s operating fields in Sumatra, Indonesia.

A consortium formed between KBR and its Indonesian partner, PT Singgar Mulia Engineering Consultants will execute the five-year contract.

As part of the consortium, KBR will be responsible for engineering design and construction management for Chevron's hydrocarbon production surface facilities at the Minas, Duri and Dumai fields in Sumatra.

Under the contract, the consortium will also offer in-country services to manage daily operational activities for Chevron's production facilities.

The services include providing local and global personnel, tools and procedures as well as establishing and maintaining infrastructure.

KBR president and CEO Stuart Bradie said: “This contract demonstrates KBR's ability to establish strong local partnerships as well as our global oil and gas capabilities for new and brownfield project developments in any location across the globe."  

"Moreover, this long term operational support services contract furthers KBR's strategic objective of growing the operating expenditure-facing portion of our business.”

However, the contract value has not been disclosed by the parties.

Last month, Chevron announced the completion of the sale of its geothermal business in Indonesia to Star Energy Consortium.

Recently, KBR has signed a multi-phase ten-year engineering and procurement services master contract with Chevron U.S.A., to offer engineering and procurement services for Chevron in multiple global locations.

Employing over 34,000 people worldwide, KBR has customers in more than 80 countries, and operations in 40 countries. Its global businesses include Government Services, Technology & Consulting and Engineering & Construction.
