HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- KBR (NYS: KBR) today announced it was awarded a contract by the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) to provide PMC services for the FEED Phase of the Gas Processing Plant (GPP) within the new Oil-Gas Processing and Petrochemical Complex (OGPC) in Azerbaijan.

This award marks the first direct engagement between SOCAR and KBR on a large world-scale capital project. KBR will build upon its long-term project experience in Azerbaijan to perform services for project management and work with its established offices in Baku to provide support for the OGPC project.

Oil products are being developed as strategic domestic assets and the petrochemical plant is being developed mostly for the export market. The GPP FEED completion is expected circa October 2013, with the overall OGPC expected to begin operating in late 2020.

"KBR is proud to support SOCAR on their flagship onshore OGPC world-scale facility," said David Zelinski, President, KBR Downstream. "This award confirms KBR's presence as one of the top engineering contractors in the region, specifically Azerbaijan."
