KBR Consulting International draws on a heritage of over thirty-five years specialising in the front-end phases of engineering projects from pre-feasibility, up to and including preliminary Front End Engineering Design (FEED) phases. In addition, we undertake small FEEDs as well as providing specialist consultancy to later through to phases of projects. The front-end nature of the work means that we are often involved in developments in areas and technologies new to the engineering industry.

About us

With clients ranging from large internationals to smaller independent companies, we are currently heavily involved globally in the transition from oil and gas to other sources of energy (including hydrogen and ammonia), decarbonisation, production of bio-fuels and the move towards minimal manning of offshore production facilities. Other projects include strategy / master plan development (‘Decisioneering’ process), financial modelling, product & energy optimisation, maximising asset performance and petrochemical integration.

Over the years, KBR has provided support for some of the largest industry capital investments in modern times. Moreover, KBR has acted as lender’s advisor on well over 200 projects for a broad range of clients and financial institutions across many sectors including upstream and downstream oil and gas, speciality chemicals, mining, biofuels, pulp and paper, power, and general infrastructure.

The subsea and pipeline engineering discipline covers onshore pipelines, offshore pipelines and subsea engineering. Subsea and pipeline engineers use their technical expertise and problem solving skills to find optimum technical solutions whilst working alongside other engineering disciplines to ensure a robust, economic and safe design. Subsea and pipeline engineers gain exposure to design, construction and operation aspects, including in many cases state-of-the art design approaches.
