LONDON, Dec. 9 -- Sonangol EP has awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction management services-site development contract to KBR for the 200,000 b/d Lobito refinery in Angola, about 373 miles south of Luanda. Financial details were not disclosed.

The EPC award follows KBR's front-end engineering and design contract granted in November. KBR will start its new assignment immediately on the grassroots refinery, which will process heavy crudes and reduce Angola's product imports.

KBR's EPC work also includes construction of a heavy haul road to transport materials and equipment to the refinery, as well as a marine facility that will be used to import and export both raw and finished hydrocarbon products.
