"KBR is committed to providing state-of-the-art solutions for safe plant start-up and operations and providing an environment to achieve preventative and predictive maintenance activities of the ammonia plant."

"This project is indicative of KBR's strategic commitment to growing our presence in Russia," Derbyshire continued.
