HOUSTON, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a Front-End Engineering Design (FFED) contract by Fidelis New Energy for Project Fyrkat, a liquid carbon dioxide (LCO2) receiving terminal at the Port of Aalborg, Denmark.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide engineering to support the LCO2 handling and storage facility, as Fidelis New Energy aims to help global decarbonization.
