February 19, 2014  

HOUSTON - KBR (KBR), a global engineering, construction and services company, announced today that Eurochem will use KBR`s Purifier(TM) technology licensed through Tecnimont S.p.A., in the design of two new ammonia plants located at Kingisepp near St. Petersburg and Nevinnomyssk in southern Russia. 

"Eurochem selected KBR`s Purifier ammonia processing technology because it is more reliable and has lower energy consumption than competing technologies in the industry, resulting in reduced operating costs for the end user," said Roy Oelking, KBR Hydrocarbons Group President.

Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the fourth quarter of 2013 backlog of unfilled orders for the Hydrocarbons segment. The contract value was not disclosed.

"This award confirms that KBR is in the best position to provide Russia with proven cost effective ammonia processing technologies to upgrade their aging fertilizer plants," Oelking said.  

As the world`s leading supplier of ammonia process technologies, KBR has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering and construction of more than 230 ammonia plants worldwide.
