KBR has extensive experience designing, engineering, constructing and installing major offshore oil and gas facilities. KBR facilities are built to add value for our clients for many decades, in the world's harshest and most demanding conditions. These facilities and installation methods include:
Development of topside designs has been central to KBR’s added value to clients for decades. We have developed solutions for platforms, floating production systems (FPS) and floating production storage and offloading systems (FPSO). Our knowledge of fabrication, installation operations and maintenance are built into every topside, helping to ensure that performance satisfies our clients’ requirements.
KBR delivers topside production systems to fit a project development basis. Our designs can be seen supported on the following:
Gravity Base Structures
Determining toxicity classifications
KBR Floatover is an installation method that allows offshore platform topsides to be installed as a single integrated package. This permits the deck to be completed onshore, with the financial benefit of eliminating substantial offshore hook-up and commissioning and the associated costs.
Floatover decks are especially attractive in areas where the topside weight exceeds locally available crane capacity and the cost of mobilizing larger cranes is high. Such areas include offshore Australia, the Far East and the Caspian Sea. Floatover decks have also been used in the North Sea.
