With the recent signing of a progress acknowledgment statement between BUA Group and Axens of France for the former’s proposed 200,000barrels per day refinery in Akwa Ibom, KBR, Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a contract to complete the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for BUA Group’s new, modern refinery facility in Nigeria.
The award marks the continuation of a strong relationship with BUA Group, a leading agricultural and industrial chemicals conglomerate, after KBR successfully completed the conceptual feasibility study for the project in 2018.
The facility will support fuel production for Nigeria’s domestic and regional markets, helping reduce the country’s dependence on imported supplies. Elements of the work will include sulphur removal facilities, water treatment facilities to meet high level environmental standards, and heat integration to ensure long standing efficiency of production.
