American EPC major KBR has announced that it has been awarded a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and project management services contract by Oman Liquefied Natural Gas LLC (Oman LNG) in Qalhat, Oman.
Oman LNG operates three liquefaction trains with a total nameplate capacity of 10.4mn tonnes per annum (mtpa).
Revenue associated with this contract was undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Engineering & Construction business segment in the second quarter of 2017.
This project represents KBR's re-entry into the Oman market and supports the contractor’s strategic focus on gas monetisation in the Middle East region.
"This contract confirms KBR's strong reputation as one of the world's preeminent leaders in LNG facilities and demonstrates the trust that Oman LNG has placed in KBR following the successful development of the original Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) of this world-class LNG facility," Jay Ibrahim, KBR President – Europe, Middle East & Africa, was quoted as saying in a press release.
"We are committed to expanding our footprint in the Middle East and are delighted at this opportunity to re-establish KBR in Oman and contribute to Oman's In-Country Value (ICV) initiatives."
KBR was ranked no. 15 in Oil & Gas Middle East magazine’s recently published annual list of the Top 30 EPC Contractors 2017.
