McDermott awarded FEED contract for Sohar LNG bunkering project in Oman
McDermott International, Inc. announced it has been awarded a sizeable 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 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. The global LNG bunkering market is entering a rapid growth period driven largely by the International Maritime Organization's legislation to significantly limit sulphur emissions.
