JGC Corporation announced that it has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract under a triple FEED competition scheme for the LNG plant for marine fuel that Total E&P Oman Development, a 100% subsidiary of the French company Total, is planning in the Port of Sohar in Oman, in partnership with Oman Oil Company.
This project consists of FEED services to construct a new medium-scale LNG plant with an annual LNG production capacity of 1,000,000 tonnes in Sohar, one of the largest industrial zones in the Middle East, approximately 200 kilometres to the west of Muscat, the capital of Sultanate of Oman. Growing demand is expected for marine fuel since the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is set to introduce environmental regulation for maritime fuel in 2020.
