      Halliburton's Kellogg Brown & Root joint venture will execute major
                            LNG expansion in Nigeria

           Consortium to continue work at Bonny Island on third train

DALLAS,  Texas -- Nigeria LNG Limited  has  awarded a turn key  engineering  and
construction contract for a major expansion of its Liquefied Natural Gas complex
at Bonny Island to a joint  venture of Technip,  Snamprogetti,  Kellogg  Brown &
Root and JGC  Corporation  affiliates.  Kellogg  Brown & Root is a subsidiary of
Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL).

The  third  train and  associated  facilities  included  in the  expansion  will
increase the  capability  of the complex to process  associated  gas  feedstock,
enabling  a major  reduction  in gas  flaring in  Nigeria.  In  addition  to the
environmental  benefits,  the  expansion  is expected to generate  large  export
earnings for Nigeria and establish NLNG as an increasingly significant player in
the global natural gas industry.

"We are proud to continue our work with NLNG to expand the world class  facility
we are building in Nigeria," said Dave Lesar, president of Halliburton Co.

"This win extends  Kellogg Brown  & Root's track  record in  the LNG  market and
demonstrates  our ability to team with  our partners in bringing our world class
engineering, construction, and project execution  skills  to complex  projects,"
added A. J. (Jack) Stanley, president of Kellogg Brown & Root.

With the expansion,  LNG production  capacity from the complex will be more than
8.6  million  tons per annum by the time all three  trains are in  operation  in
2002. The initial phase of the  grassroots  Bonny Island complex is currently in
construction  by the joint venture,  with first LNG exports  targeted later this

The shareholders in Nigeria LNG Limited are Nigerian National  Petroleum Company
and subsidiaries of Royal Dutch/Shell, Elf Aquitaine and Agip.
