Engineering, procurement and construction firm KBR has been awarded an energy efficiency opportunities study at Gladstone LNG (GLNG) in Australia by energy giant Santos.

Building on KBR’s strong and successful portfolio within the LNG sector, the study seeks to explore opportunities to improve the overall energy efficiency of the plant and reduce CO2 emissions associated with the GLNG liquefaction facility.

KBR will assist GLNG in identifying and screening potential modifications to enhance the operational facility through improvements of thermal efficiency while also accounting for the associated reduction in carbon emissions.

“KBR has long been trusted by clients across the LNG sector and this study is indicative of KBR’s capabilities and skillsets across complex industrial assets, demonstrating our strategic commitment to sustainability and decarbonization and optimising operational efficiencies across the supply chain,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions.

This project will leverage the specialist energy, decarbonisation and process optimisation skills of KBR’s strategic and advisory consulting team.
