HOUSTON, July 5 (UPI) -- Texas company KBR will support construction project in 20 countries under a new contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The countries are all in the U.S. Central Command's area of responsibility and include Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Yemen.

The multiple award task order contract has an overall value of $3.8 billion, with a period of performance at two base years, with one-year options available for the following three years.

A large majority of the task orders anticipated for this MATOC program include projects directly supporting the U.S. military and U.S. government in the various regions.

Under a previous CENTCOM MATOC program, KBR executed $620 million worth of projects across 32 separate task orders.

"It is a privilege for KBR to be given the opportunity to continue to work with the Middle East District USACE, and to continue to offer a high level of services and quality facilities to our military personnel located throughout the world," said Mark Williams, group president, Infrastructure, Government and Power.
