Houston, Texas – KBR has been awarded a contract by Incitec Pivot Ltd’s US business, Dyno Nobel, to provide engineering, procurement and construction services, as well as technology licensing and equipment for an ammonia plant to be built in Waggaman, La.

The contract award, which is valued at approximately $600 million, positions KBR to capitalize on the rapidly increasing shale gas market in North America, the engineering company said.

The 800ktpa ammonia facility will be designed using KBR’s Purifier technology, which, it says, has a documented track record of safe and reliable operations and offers the lowest energy consumption in the industry.
