Saudi Aramco and ConocoPhillips have awarded KBR, a US firm providing technology services in the energy sector, an engineering contract for their Yanbu joint venutre refinery project.
Under the contract, KBR will provide detailed engineering and procurement services for the utilities package and the interconnecting systems and pipe racks for the Yanbu Export Refinery Project (YERP) in Saudi Arabia.
