HOUSTON (ICIS)--KBR won a license and engineering contract to design a fertilizer complex in Indiana, the US engineering firm said on Wednesday.

KBR said that under its contract with Ohio Valley Resources, it will execute a front-end engineering design (FEED) package to develop a proposal for a fertilizer complex that could be sited in Spencer County, Indiana.

KBR said it would design the main ammonia process units.

The ammonia plant is based upon an existing reference design operating in Burrup, Australia, since 2006.

Texas-based KBR will also design the plant utilities and other supporting units for the facility.

Engineering firm Weatherly will supply the design of the proprietary UAN plant on a subcontract to KBR.

The development of the proposal began in July 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in early 2013.
