KBR, Inc. has been awarded a contract by Dorogobuzh JSC (owned by JSC ACRON) to provide licensing and basic engineering design for the revamp of an ammonia plant. The plant, which is located in the Dorogobuzh, Smolensk region of Russia, was originally built by KBR.

Under the agreement, KBR will supply its KBR Reforming Exchanger System (KRESTM) ammonia revamp technology to increase plant capacity significantly to 2100 million tpd, with improved efficiency. The company will also employ its True Cold Wall Add-on Converter to achieve low project cost revamping while meeting increasing captive demand.

"The application of KRES and a reliable add-on ammonia converter provides low cost revamping to Dorogobuzh and numerous similar plants in the region," said John Derbyshire, President of KBR Technology and Consulting.

"We are pleased to contribute KBR's innovative technology solution for natural gas monetisation in Russia," Derbyshire continued.

The revenue associated with this project is undisclosed and was booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Technology & Consulting Business Segment in 2Q17.
