HOUSTON (ICIS)--KBR has won a contract to provide basic design engineering and a technology license for an ammonia plant to be built in Egypt, the US petrochemicals engineering firm said on Wednesday.

KBR said the project by Chemical Industries Holding (Kima) in Aswan is being built “on a fast-track basis to support regional development plans in Aswan as well as Egypt’s drive to build modern fertilizer complexes.”

KBR did not disclose the project’s capacities, expected start-up time, or financial details.

“We are honoured that Kima has selected KBR and look forward to working closely with our EPC [engineering, procurement and construction] partner Tecnimont to deliver a world-class ammonia plant to Kima,” said John Derbyshire, president of KBR Technology.

Last week, KBR announced it won a contract to help revamp and expand a 1,000 tonne/day ammonia plant at Baiji, Iraq.
