Kent, a leading engineering services provider in the oil and gas, low carbon energy and chemicals sectors, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a three-year Master Services Agreement (MSA) with TotalEnergies for engineering services in the United States.
Under this agreement, Kent will provide engineering services at TotalEnergies’ Port Arthur Platform and La Porte Plant in Texas and the Carville Plant in Louisiana, one of the largest polystyrene facilities in the world. The agreement will also include the provision of services for Bayport Polymers LLC’s Ethane Cracker in Texas, which is operated by TotalEnergies. Kent has been providing engineering services to TotalEnergies at the Port Arthur Platform since 2016.
The engineering scope covers everything from feasibility studies through pre-FEED and FEED and into detailed engineering. The contract is managed from Kent’s Houston office and draws upon expertise from its offices in Canada, UK, Colombia and India when necessary.
Paula Fitzpatrick, VP Operations Americas at Kent said on the award:
“Kent's growth strategy in the Americas focuses on growing our engineering and EPCM services and establishing long-term partnerships with our clients across the US. The award of this MSA is testament to our excellent execution and delivery of engineering services to TotalEnergies since 2016. We are delighted that through the execution of projects within this MSA we will be helping TotalEnergies advance its emissions reduction efforts.”
As one of TotalEnergies' six refining and petrochemicals platforms worldwide, the Port Arthur Platform has a daily processing capacity of 238,000 barrels per day and is the Company’s largest facility in the US. The platform can process heavy crude oil, as well as lighter domestic crudes. It also has a dedicated unit to produce low-sulphur fuels, which reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
