Project Details

  • KBR and its partners were awarded the EPC contract, which included the delivery of the process plant, offsite/utilities, product storage and offloading, camp, and jetty.

  • There are more than 130 modules, including 12 process modules, 14 pipe rack modules, 39 air separation unit (ASU) modules and nearly 70 various process skids.
  • The largest module is over 2,600 tons and approximately 22 m x 29 m x 32 m.
  • The two largest vessels are each nearly 2,100 tons and 60 m high with a 12 m2 footprint.
  • At its peak production, Escravos GTL produces 34,000 barrels per day of premium grade, environmentally friendly diesel (80 percent) and naphtha products, plus a small amount of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) for export.
