KBR has announced that it has executed an EPC contract with Yara International and BASF Group’s new joint production company to provide ammonia synthesis licensed technology and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) to build a world-scale ammonia plant at BASF’s site in Freeport, Texas.
Upon completion, the ammonia plant will use KBR’s experienced EPC delivery and technology capabilities, including KBR’s ammonia synthesis process, to produce about 750,000 metric tons per year of ammonia.
“KBR is proud to continue our relationship with Yara and BASF through our performance on this project,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. “This project represents KBR's ability to bring world-class technology together with our engineering, procurement and construction skills to safely deliver complex energy projects in line with our strategy of differentiated EPC. This follows KBR’s successful track record on the U.S. Gulf Coast.”
KBR has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering and/or construction of more than 230 ammonia plants worldwide.
