Refining

​​Refinery operators continue to confront many challenges — volatile feedstock prices, varying global fuel demand, a changing regulatory landscape and global competition. KBR delivers leading edge, cost effective solutions for diverse refining needs in every market, every day.

KBR's portfolio of refining technologies enables refiners to process a wide variety of crudes, including heavy opportunity crudes, while retaining the flexibility to adjust the fuel mix and quality to meet ever changing market demands.

Our experience as a technology developer and licensor, along with our comprehensive studies​ and proven project delivery capabilities, has resulted in KBR licensing, designing or constructing more than 60 greenfield refineries and well over 1,000 refining units of every type and size the world over. We do not rely on past successes to address tomorrow's problems. Everyday, through the talent and skill of KBR experts using state-of-the-art tools, we seek new and better ways to deliver the superior performance and cost-effective solutions to meet your pressing challenges.

Our licensed technology is found in more than half of the world's FCC units, a majority of resid upgrading units and more than 100 hydroprocessing units. Our emphasis on heavy oil upgrading, improving bottom-of-the-barrel yields, producing clean fuels, and providing a wider range of operating flexibility to refiners makes KBR a clear partner to address any refining challenge. From grassroots design to revamps, no job is too large — or too small. We know refining, and we know how to make refining competitive.
