KBR announced that it has been awarded a Master Service Agreement (MSA) and Feasibility Study by JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corporation (JX Nippon), integrated energy, resources, and materials group in Japan.
Building on KBR’s strong and successful portfolio in this area, the study will assess options for Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS), alongside blue hydrogen production relating to oil and gas fields in South East Asia, a region where JX Nippon continues to expand on its global track record of CCS/CCUS projects.
KBR will provide technical consultancy services with developing concepts and technology recommendations for the capture of CO2, reinjection, and production of blue (i.e. carbon-free) hydrogen.
KBR will also evaluate the feasibility of conversion and transport of hydrogen in other forms for sale into the market, including liquified cryogenic hydrogen, liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC), ammonia, and methanol (utilizing CO2).
This project will be led primarily from KBR’s consulting hub in Singapore, leveraging on the specialist skills of its wider strategic and advisory consulting and engineering groups. This includes a world-leading cryogenic hydrogen team that works with NASA extensively on the storage, training and safe handling of hydrogen at extreme temperatures.
