Tudor Pickering's George O' Leary released a research note Wednesday morning suggesting Chevron's (NYSE: CVX) partaking in the Kitimat LNG project should be a "substantial positive" for KBR (NYSE: KBR). The analyst believes Chevron's involvement increases the odds of getting a final investment decision over the next year.

O' Leary said Foster Wheeler (NASDAQ: FWLT), Saipem, Chicago Bridge & Iron (NYSE: CBI) and Bechtel could be companies which might win contracts related to Kitimat.

Tudor Pickering maintains a Buy rating on shares of KBR.

The stock is up nearly 1.5 percent at last check.
