KBR, a global provider of differentiated professional services, said it has been awarded a contract by Sonatrach and Cepsa to provide basic engineering design (BED) and front-end engineering design (Feed) for the Rhoude el Krouf Field (RKF) redevelopment in Algeria.

The RKF field, located in the Algeria desert south-East of Hassi Messaoud, includes an oil and gas Central Processing Facilities (CPF) with gathering network and all associated structures.

The redevelopment will add an additional oil and gas treatment train to the existing facilities. This project is part of Sonatrach's and Cepsa's objectives to support the increase of Algeria's oil and gas capacity, said a statement from KBR.

The project will be executed from KBR's London (UK) and Chennai (India) offices over an eight month period, it stated.

"KBR is proud of its more than 45-year history in Algeria," remarked Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions – Services.

"This project will demonstrate KBR's ability to utilize its global resources to provide the full capabilities of engineering and Feed services," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
