KBR, Inc. has been awarded a high level feasibility study which includes exploring the possible expansion of the Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd’s (SLNG) existing LNG terminal on Jurong Island.

SLNG was formed by Singapore’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) to develop, build, own and operate Singapore’s first LNG Terminal. This is KBR’s first contract with SLNG.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide feasible conceptual solutions for SLNG’s consideration and create a design option that could be scalable in the long run. This work is expected to be performed over five months, with KBR performing the feasibility study through an integrated core team comprising of LNG expertise from KBR’s London and Singapore offices, its Granherne subsidiary and the SLNG’s development team.

“Singapore’s first LNG Terminal in Jurong Island is a strategic and critical national infrastructure. Together with SLNG, KBR is excited to help advance the growth of the energy market and LNG hub in Singapore and support SLNG’s vision of being a world-class terminal operator,” said Greg Conlon, KBR President, Asia Pacific.

KBR has led the concept development, study, design and construction of over 45% of the world’s LNG facilities. The company has participated in nearly 50 LNG terminal projects covering all project phases including feasibility studies, basic design, FEED and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) execution.

Indonesian contract

In other news, KBR has been awarded a pre-front end engineering and design (FEED) study for PT Australasia LNG Indonesia’s (AALNG) new proposed LNG Hub terminal in Probolinggo, East Java, Indonesia.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a pre-FEED study for the onshore LNG regasification and truck loading distribution facilities of AALNG’s proposed LNG Hub Terminal. The pre-FEED study will be further developed for subsequent implementation phases to meet a throughput capacity of three million MTPA.

The terminal could potentially be expanded by adding more LNG Regas trains and LNG storage to meet future demands in the East Java region.

This work is expected to be performed over t10 weeks, with KBR performing the pre-FEED study through an integrated team led by LNG expertise from KBR’s London office with support from KBR’s Jakarta office and its Granherne subsidiary.
