"As a leader in ammonia process technology and construction for more than 60 years, KBR is well positioned to help our clients deliver projects that serve local communities for decades to come."

KBR will provide the technology license, basic engineering and design package, and supply of proprietary equipment for the world-scale grassroots facility.
