KBR (NYSE: KBR) has announced today it has been awarded a contract amendment by Saudi Aramco to execute front-end engineering and design (FEED) for its Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) project at the Jazan Refinery and Terminal near Jazan Economic City, Saudi Arabia. Once complete, it will be the largest gasifier-based power facility built in the world.
The IGCC complex will convert vacuum residue to electricity and utilities for the refinery and export approximately 2.4 gigawatts of electricity to the Jazan Economic City and the surrounding region. This award follows KBR’s recent completion of FEED for the Jazan Refinery and Terminal, a 400,000 bpd facility located near Jazan Economic City.
“KBR is pleased to support Saudi Aramco in the development of Jazan Refinery and Terminal Project and what is to become the largest IGCC complex in the world,” said David Zelinski, President, Downstream. “This contract represents our continued commitment to providing Saudi Aramco quality FEED services and is a testament of the quality of work we have already conducted in the region.”
