McDermott International announced that it has been awarded a sizeable contract by Total Oman E&P Development in partnership with Oman Oil Company 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.

"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, McDermott.

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

McDermott defines a sizeable contract as between $1mn and $50mn.
