KBR Subsidiary Granherne Selected for Conceptual Study as Part of StatoilHydro ASA's Gullfaks 2030 Project

23 May 2009

KBR today announced that its consulting subsidiary Granherne has been selected to take part in a conceptual study of StatoilHydro ASA's Gullfaks 2030 project to extend the production from the gas field.

The award builds on previous conceptual studies recently undertaken by Granherne evaluating the possible installation of a subsea Wet Gas Compression and the tie-back of the Peon satellite production to the Gullfaks C platform.

"This project builds on the long relationship between Granherne and StatoilHydro ASA that spans over two decades," said John Rose, President, KBR Upstream. "We look forward to participating in the study which solidifies KBR's presence in the front end consultancy market."

Work on the study commenced in April 2009.
