McDermott wins Feed contract for Oman LNG project

MUSCAT, July 16, 2019

McDermott International, a premier, fully integrated provider of technology, engineering and construction solutions announced it has been awarded a sizeable contract by Total Oman E&P Development in partnership with Oman Oil Company to provide front-end engineering design (Feed) services for the Sohar LNG Bunkering Project in Oman.

This project is intended to establish Oman as a regional LNG bunkering hub capable of supplying LNG as a fuel to marine vessels.

According to McDermott, the scope of work includes fully defining the onshore mid-scale LNG facilities and preparing a competitive tender for the engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning phase.

The global LNG bunkering market is entering a rapid growth period driven largely by the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) legislation to significantly limit sulphur emissions.

"This award is a reflection of McDermott's 60-year history of delivering innovative LNG solutions worldwide, beginning with our tank storage solutions in the 1950s, to our liquefaction capabilities today," remarked Linh Austin, the senior vice-president for the Middle East and North Africa.

Work on the project will begin immediately and the contract award will be reflected in McDermott's second quarter 2019 backlog, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
