KBR announced that it has been awarded a contract by INDORAMA-owned Eleme Petrochemicals Co. Ltd (Eleme) to provide technology licensing and engineering services related to the revamp of Eleme's Port Harcourt, Nigeria ethylene plant.

KBR will provide an extended basic engineering design package for the partial revamp of six Millisecond furnaces to incorporate its SCORETM technology features. The plant was originally designed and engineered by KBR, and came onstream in 1995. The goal of the revamp is to enhance the operating performance and reliability of the existing, fifteen year old furnaces, improve run lengths and improve overall performance and reliability. The project will continue through the restarting of revamped furnaces with a series of follow-on services under an existing Technical Services Agreement between the two companies.

"KBR is pleased to partner with Eleme on its critical plant revamp project," said Tim Challand, President, KBR Technology. "This contract award demonstrates KBR Technology's commitment to delivering innovative process technology solutions that add value to customers throughout the plant lifecycle and reaffirms our technology presence worldwide."

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