McDermott wins FEED contract for Sohar LNG bunkering project in Oman

46613640365 e5a0b7050f zAmerican engineering firm McDermott International has won a sizeable contract to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for the Sohar LNG bunkering project in Oman

The project, which involves Total Oman E&P Development B.V. and Oman Oil Company S.O.A.C, aims to establish Oman as a regional 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.

Linh Austin, senior vice-president, Middle East and North Africa, said, “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.”

Work on the project will begin immediately and the contract award will be reflected in McDermott’s second-quarter 2019 backlog.
