Motiva Enterprises LLC Selects KBR to Participate in Design of Major Refinery

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/7/2005, Location: North America

Motiva Enterprises LLC, a joint venture between Shell Oil Company and Saudi Refining Inc, has selected KBR to provide conceptualization, planning and early design services for a major refinery expansion being considered by Motiva in the United States. This 325,000 barrel per day (BPD) capacity increase will be designed to process heavy sour crudes. KBR is the engineering, construction and services subsidiary of Halliburton.

“KBR is proud to play a vital role in this important project for Motiva,” said Andy Lane, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Halliburton. “KBR brings to the table our long-standing experience in heavy oil projects, along with our mega-project execution model. Our unparalleled capabilities in front-end and detailed engineering, procurement, construction and operations and maintenance will be key to helping Motiva realize its objectives.”

As one of the first major U. S. refinery expansion projects in 30 years, this strategic initiative is part of Motiva’s plan announced in September 2005 to increase refining capacity at one or more of its petroleum product refineries. The company’s gulf coast refineries are strategically located to supplement additional transportation fuels needed to meet the growing demand in the U.S.

All three Motiva refineries have ready access to waterborne crude oil and major product pipelines, and are viable candidates for a refinery expansion. Motiva currently owns three refineries in the Gulf Coast area, located in Port Arthur, Louisiana.

Motiva Enterprises LLC owns and operates refineries capable of refining approximately 780,000 barrels per day, a distribution system including ownership interests in 47 product terminals, and a marketing network that supports more than 9,000 branded gasoline stations in the Eastern and Southern United States.
