KBR today announced that it has received a letter of award from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Limited to perform engineering design and procurement support services for the BP Quad 204 Floating Production Storage and Offload (FPSO) Project to be located west of Shetland Isles in UK waters.
The Quad 204 FPSO will be designed to meet the strict safety and environmental regulations for harsh weather operations.
