Oman LNG awards key deal to Baker Hughes

MUSCAT, February 25, 2020

Oman LNG has signed a deal with international energy technology firm Baker Hughes for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the turbo-machinery scope of its debottlenecking project, an initiative that will lift Oman LNG’s production capacity by 10 per cent to 11.4 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTA), a report said. 
An agreement to this effect was signed at Baker Hughes’ 2020 Annual Meeting in Florence, Italy recently, said the Oman Daily Observer report.
Debottlenecking is defined as the process of highlighting specific areas in production trains, machinery equipment or the workflow configuration that would limit or constrain the flow of product inside the plant. By optimising plant operations, overall capacity can be raised further. The debottlenecking project comes as part of Oman LNG’s far-sighted strategic projects that will boost its efficiency, the report said.
Under the terms of the deal, Baker Hughes will supply the new helper motors, variable-frequency drives and deliver the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the said project scope. 
The project will be executed over the next two years, with the first train completion by the end of 2020, followed by the second LNG train in 2021, and the third LNG train by 2022.
