KBR, SOCAR JV wins Azeri work

January 16, 2018

Azerbaijan’s SOCAR and US engineering firm KBR’s joint venture will provide front-end engineering design services (FEED) for a new production, drilling and quarters platform, Azeri Central East (ACE), for the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) field in the Caspian Sea. 

The two FEED contracts’ scope of work includes associated brownfield tie-ins to other existing platforms in the ACG field, and a separate contract for the subsea services FEED.

These contracts mark the 4th and 5th awards to the joint venture, SOCAR-KBR Limited Liability Company (SOCAR-KBR), since its establishment in mid-2015. SOCAR-KBR was formed to help further Azerbaijan's ambition for creating a world-class Azerbaijan based engineering company, KBR said in a 16 January statement.

"Through the Azerbaijani engineering company, SOCAR-KBR, we are partnering KBR's proven tools, systems, and procedures and our project track record in the Azerbaijan, Turkey and Georgia (AGT) region with SOCAR's operation knowledge and experience in the oil and gas sector," said Jay Ibrahim, president, EMEA, KBR. KBR has been working in the Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey (AGT) region since 1993.

These projects will be led by the Caspian engineering team in London with support from the Baku office, where local engineers are delivering various projects under the SOCAR-KBR umbrella, Ibrahim said.

The value of the contract was booked into the backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Engineering & Construction business segment in Q4 2017.
