New York-listed energy industry technology, engineering and construction solutions provider McDermott International, Inc. on Monday (15 July) says it has been awarded a contract by Total Oman E&P Development B.V. in partnership with Oman Oil Company S.O.A.C. 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 liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering hub capable of supplying LNG as a fuel to marine vessels.
The scope of work during the FEED phase includes fully defining the onshore mid-scale LNG facilities and preparing a competitive tender for the engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning phase.
“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,” said Linh Austin, Senior Vice President, Middle East and North Africa.
Work on the project will begin immediately.
