KBR has been awarded a five-year Master Services Agreement (MSA) with DuPont Engineering (DuPont) to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for most DuPont facilities in the USA and Mexico.
Expected revenue from the first year of the undisclosed contract value will be included in the Hydrocarbons segment’s backlog of unfilled orders in the fourth quarter of 2013. The balance of the contract value will be added to backlog during the life of the agreement.
This contract extends the long-standing EPCM services support of DuPont facilities in the U.S. Northeast region to now include the entire U.S. region and Mexico. In combination with the recently awarded industrial services contract, KBR will now provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, construction management, and continuous construction and maintenance services for most DuPont manufacturing sites in the USA. As part of this expanded relationship, KBR will open a new office in Charleston, W.Va.
“We have a long and proud history of top quartile project execution with DuPont, and this agreement is an outstanding milestone in further strengthening KBR’s 20-plus year partnership with an industry leader in the safe and efficient development and execution of capital projects,” said Roy Oelking, Group President, Hydrocarbons. “We are fully committed to continuing this partnership with DuPont in new locations in support of ongoing excellence in safe and profitable project delivery for years to come.”
