WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 (HalliburtonWatch.org) -- The U.S. Navy awarded $6.5 million to Halliburton's KBR subsidiary for Hurricane Katrina cleanup work in New Orleans and other areas in the south, the Navy announced last week. The work is expected to be completed in September 2007. The money was awarded to KBR under its "construction capabilities" (CONCAP) contract with the Navy and was competitively bid in 2001 and renewed in 2004. Under the contract, which is not to exceed $500 million, the Navy can call upon KBR on short notice to repair areas damaged by catastrophes.
