KBR Bags Project Management Contract for Sonangol’s Lobito Refinery Project

KBR bagged a project management contract from Sonangol for the design and construction of a new 2,00,000 bpd refinery in Lobito, Angola. KBR will provide services encompassing the project management of engineering, procurement and construction phase execution. The Lobito refinery project is one of the most significant energy infrastructure projects in the region and will contribute to Angola’s energy independence.

The project will also contribute to significant job creation and economic development of the region. Upon completing the Lobito refinery project, Angola is expected to have a 200% increase in the capacity to produce fuel products within the country in an efficient and sustainably improved approach.

KBR completed the FEED phase of the project earlier in 2023, providing a cost competitive design that met Sonangol’s business objectives while meeting the advanced emission standards required in the industry. As per the press release, KBR’s FEED design also meets 2030 African and European product specifications with river water consumption and waste-water treatment requirements reduced by 30% as a result of KBR’s innovation in the refinery’s cooling system design.  “We are excited to be a part of this important project and to continue to grow and maintain a substantial presence in the region,” said Jay Ibrahim, President, Sustainable Technology Solutions. Ibrahim added, “This win is indicative of KBR’s strategic commitment to offer differentiated technical services that support Angola’s sustainable development goals”.
