KBR announced on Thursday that Methanex has approved the company to start working on the detailed Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) phase of Methanex’s Geismar 3 methanol project.
KBR will continue to work closely with Methanex to provide reimbursable EPC services for a third methanol operating plant located adjacent to Methanex’s two existing Geismar, Louisiana facilities. KBR was awarded a reimbursable Front End Engineering Design (FEED) with EPC option contract for the project in July 2018.
“We are delighted to continue our work with Methanex and to once again demonstrate our unmatched ability to execute large-scale, complex projects,” said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. “We look forward to successfully and safely completing this world class methanol facility to produce a product that is an essential ingredient used to produce hundreds of everyday industrial and consumer items and is also a clean-burning, cost-competitive alternative fuel.”
EPC work for the 1.8 million tonne per year world-scale methanol plant – which will be executed from KBR’s Houston Operations Center and at the project site – is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022.
