HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Engineering and construction company KBR said on Wednesday it was awarded a $57m (€39m) contract by MAN Ferrostaal (MFS) to provide engineering services for an ammonia plant being built in Venezuela.

KBR said the plant will have a production capacity of 1,800 tonnes/day and will be built near state-owned producer Petroquimica de Venezuela’s (Pequiven) petrochemical complex in Moron, Carabobo State.

“This award marks KBR’s fourth consecutive ammonia project with MFS,” KBR Downstream President John Quinn said.

The project represents part of Venezuela’s plans to invest more than $21bn in petrochemical facilities over the next decade, KBR said.
