Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a license for its proprietary ammonia process and related engineering services to increase the plant capacity to 120% of the original design.

The original plant, which started up in 1989 was designed to produce 1000MTPD Ammonia.

KBR Technology president John Derbyshire said helping the company’s licensors debottleneck their plants and achieve greater production capacities and process efficiencies is one of its core competencies and will be an area of significant growth globally.

KBR is an engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure, power, industrial, and commercial markets.
