KBR wins extension to Saudi refinery maintenance contract

HOUSTON, May 4, 2019

KBR said it has won a three-year extension for its existing general maintenance services contract from Satorp, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and French oil major Total, at its 440,000 bpd refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. 
A global provider of differentiated professional services and technologies for the energy sector, KBR said its strategic partnership with Satorp has the potential to stimulate industry-wide changes to current maintenance outsourcing philosophies.
Under the terms of the GMS contract, KBR, through its local joint venture subsidiary, will continue to provide preventive, predictive, corrective and shutdown maintenance services most notably for the Crude Distillation Units, Distillate Hydrocracker, Sulphur Recovery Unit, Aromatics, Catalytic Cracking Unit, Tank Farms and Port Loading Facilities. 
KBR will also drive its proven digital transformation initiatives to maximise asset utilisation, minimise opex and augment asset ROI for customers, said a senior official.
"This contract extension confirms Satorp's continued confidence in KBR as a full-service partner throughout the lifecycle of their asset, and KBR's position as the preeminent market leader in Industrial Services," remarked Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions -- Services. 
"We are also proud that our strong commitment to Zero Harm has achieved over 2.3 million safe man-hours on this project," he added.
KBR said it intends to drive its proven digital transformation initiatives to maximize asset utilization, minimize opex and augment asset ROI for customers.
KBR has capitalised on driving digital transformation including robotics, modeling & simulation, data analytics, and enterprise software development from its government services business into the energy space, it added.
Satorp CEO Suleiman Mansour Ababtain said KBR's culture of excellence was evident in its people's expertise and professionalism.
"We appreciate KBR as a business partner in diverse business segments, and look forward to expanding our partnership to leverage off its advanced capabilities for delivering operational excellence in our refinery," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
