KBR has served as a major participant in the design, development and construction of steam methane reforming based Ammonia Plants since 1948. We have also been directly involved in design and construction of Methanol Plants since 1950, and continue to build Methanol Plants by successfully using third party methanol process technologies.
We are a leading designer and builder of syngas producing plants which convert natural gas into hydrogen and carbon oxides safely, with low capital costs and energy consumption. As a syngas process licensor, we also offer expert reforming technology in conventional steam methane reformers, autothermal reformers and by using the KBR Reforming Exchanger™ System.
We have also been actively involved in the licensing, design, and construction of more than 200 ammonia plants worldwide, representing approximately half of current global ammonia production, providing single point integrated EPC solutions for Ammonia Plus urea plants by adding Stamicarbon™ Urea Technology.
KBR recently completed the commissioning and construction of two large-scale ammonia units. The first, a 2,200 MTPD ammonia plant - the world's largest - is a single train Purifier based ammonia plant located on the Burrup Peninsula, near Karratha, in Western Australia. The second - a 2,000 MTPD KBR Advanced Ammonia Process plant - is located in Ain Sukhna, Egypt for Egypt Basic Industries.
