-- The government of Equatorial Guinea has let contract to KBR for early work on a modular 20,000-b/d, low complexity refinery at Mbini in the country’s Rio Muni enclave.

KBR will perform a conceptual study and associated project management services.

The country produces about 322,000 b/d of crude oil and has no refining capacity. The new refinery will be designed to meet local fuel needs.
