Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), KBR will develop the Singapore office into its Asia Pacific Regional Center of Excellence for KBR Consulting, Digitalisation, LNG & Asset Management, Differentiated Infrastructure and its Government Services business, KBRwyle.

For nearly 50 years, KBR’s Singapore team has executed Hydrocarbons projects across the globe including offshore oil and gas (shallow-water, deep-water, subsea), LNG (liquefaction and regasification)/ GTL, oil refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, fertilisers, differentiated EPC, maintenance services (Brown & Root Industrial Services), floating solutions (FPU, FPSO, FLNG & FSRU) and program management. In the Asia Pacific region, KBR has successfully delivered projects covering all phases including feasibility studies, basic design, FEED and detailed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) execution. KBR has successfully tapped into its strong global references and expertise to actively apply them on projects in the region. As KBR looks to grow into new areas and enhance its customer base, Singapore continues to be a key location for its global project delivery and an important base to develop its people to cover growth markets in the region. KBR looks forward to establishing Singapore as the Center of Excellence for its new business areas in the near term, which is also time critical to bring value to its global business. “We are seeing changes in clients’ needs and expectations in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region and we plan to move up the value chain at our Singapore office with the support from EDB,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Asia Pacific and EMEA. “We must continue to innovate and evolve our business model across the full spectrum of our business, Technology & Consulting, Engineering and Construction and our Government Services (KBRwyle), to stay relevant and grow our businesses in the region. “KBR will continue to strengthen our Singapore team to attain the right and differentiated skills to position ourselves for the future,” Ibrahim continued. “We are excited to see KBR developing new capabilities in digital, downstream consulting and infrastructure in Singapore to support growth in the Asia Pacific markets,” said Ms Fong Pin Fen, Director, Cities, Infrastructure & Industrial Solutions. “KBR Singapore’s diversification beyond their traditional strengths in offshore markets, and their expanded presence in Singapore, will help to broaden the depth and diversity of local skillsets in the engineering services industry.”
